The Visual Effects Society of Los Angeles and The Hollywood Section of the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers invite you to join us for this informative and stimulating evening.

 

While you were putting on VR headsets, folks have been figuring out how to show us new and interesting things without disconnecting us from “Reality.”  “AR” Augmented Reality and or “XR”  offer us a new view of our world.  Now with the help of cloud-based supercomputers or new mobile devices with “AI” Artificial Intelligence hardware we will see the world differently.

 

Our presenters will give us an overview of the landscape and technologies, insights into business opportunities, tools you will need to jump into this new communication media.  And some other surprises.  What are these pioneers facing to deliver content for this exciting genre?

 

Southern California companies who are creating content and technologies will be on hand to help us learn and whet our appetite for more knowledge in this very exciting new field.

Ramón Bretón – CTO 3rd i QC Board of Managers of The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers
