Stereoscopic Video/Imaging

Her Majesty the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee visit to De Montfort University 2012 3D

Tove Dalenius, Sandra Oliveira and the Imaging and Display Research Group were selected for the groundbreaking opportunity to film Her Majesty the Queen, the Duke of Edinburgh and Princess Catherine, The Duchess of Cambridge’s Diamond Jubilee visit to De Montfort University in 3D. The film was also exhibited at the Britsh Embassy in Tokyo, Japan, during a De Montfort University event there.

PANASONIC generously donated the most up-to-date 3D video broadcast cameras and screens to the group for product development feedback.

Lecture by Brian May

November 2013
Lecture by Dr. Brian May, Denis Pellerin and Paula Fleming about the Diableries, a Victorian stereoscopic 3D view of the underworld hugely popular throughout the 1860s. They presented their new book Diableries: Stereoscopic Adventures in Hell, which brings together all but two of the Diableries cards in existence. The lecture was arranged by the De Montfort University Photographic History Research Centre (PHRC).

Brian also made a hologram together with Professor Martin Richardson in the DMU holography laboratory.

Stereoscopic Video and Binaural Sound

In her Creative Technologies masters project An investigation into how binaural sound may add presence in stereoscopic 3D-TV Tove Dalenius investigated whether adding binaural 3D sound can bring an experience of additional depth and presence to the viewer. The emphasis is on recording sound and image in a live/documentary setting.  It was hypothesised that adding further auditory depth clues to stereoscopic video could enhance the viewer’s perception of the space in which the subject was captured, and thereby enhance the viewer’s perception of presence.
