On the Feb. 1, 2016 episode of the PBS television show Antiques Roadshow, titled Little Rock Part 2 of 3, a man brought in a collection of around 150 Stereo Realist slides featuring never published images of hundreds jazz and music entertainment legends.
The man's father had been a photographer who became friends with and photographed such music legends as Nat King Cole, Louis Armstrong, Billie Holiday and many more. His son brought the items to the Little Rock, Arkansas taping of the popular TV show. More than 300 autographed 8x10 stills and around 150 stereo slides were evaluated by the show's appraiser.
Not only did the owner have the items shown on camera, he also told the appraiser there was a total of 1,960 stereo slides in the collection and that he had only brought 150 of them to be appraised. The value placed on the items was around $75,000.

He was the final addition to Universal's "royal family" of movie monsters: The Creature from the Black Lagoon. With his scaly armor, razor claws and a face only a mother octopus could love, this Amazon denizen was perhaps the most fearsome beast in the history of Hollywood's Studio of Horrors. But he also possessed a sympathetic, poignant quality that elevated him fathoms above the many aquatic monsters who swam in his wake.
Everything you ever wanted to know about the Gill Man and his mid-1950s film career (Creature from the Black Lagoon, Revenge of the Creature, The Creature Walks Among Us) is collected in this book packed to the gills with hour-by-hour production histories, cast bios, analyses, explorations of the music, script-to-screen comparisons, in-depth interviews and an ocean of fin-tastic photos..
Plan now to attend the 27th annual Stereoscopic Displays and Applications conference (SD&A). SD&A will run for 3 days over Monday to Wednesday Feb. 15 to 17 at the Hilton San Francisco Union Square Hotel, the same location as last year.
SD&A is held as part of the IS&T Electronic Imaging (EI) Symposium, which runs Feb. 14 to 18, 2016. The EI Symposium continues to be the premier meeting for the latest research covering all aspects of electronic imaging — from image sensing to display and hardcopy to machine vision.
Registration for SD&A 2016 allows you access to the full SD&A conference – plus the full EI Symposium that includes:
• 20 conferences with 12 joint sessions
including Virtual Reality and 3-D, and
Stereoscopic Image Processing and Depth Mapping
The advance program is available online.
SD&A 2016 Keynote Speakers
On Monday Feb. 15, Dr. Andrew Woods from Curtin University will discuss his 3-D imaging expedition of two historic shipwrecks in Two shipwrecks, 2,500 metres underwater, six 3-D cameras - let the survey begin.
On Tuesday Feb. 16 Robert Furmanek of 3-D Film Archive will talk about his film restoration efforts for the Blu-ray release of 3-D Movie Rarities.
Dim the lights and get the pop-corn ready, this year’s SD&A 3-D Theatre program is nearly set. All of the content is in and organizers are about to finalize the program. It’s always a very popular session and provides an insight into what’s been happening in the field of 3-D content production from artists all around the world.
Here’s a teaser of what you will see:
The 2015 Stereoscopic Displays and Applications (SD&A) conference organizers are pleased to announce the availability of more than seven hours of presentation videos from the conference held during February 2015. These videos are available via a YouTube special playlist: http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLoksP178KYM5jBgAeOZtarUed904swe3c
The SD&A conference is the largest and longest running technical conference dedicated to stereoscopic imaging topics, and is held annually as part of the Electronic Imaging (EI) Symposium www.electronicimaging.org This year’s video selection includes Ian Bickerstaff from Sony Computer Entertainment discussing VR techniques, which will be important for the new VR systems, Prof. Jenny Read from Newcastle University discussing her ground-breaking work analyzing praying mantis stereoscopic vision, EI plenary Alyosha Efros explaining what makes big visual data hard, plus a wide selection of SD&A topics including autostereoscopic displays, stereoscopic games, stereoscopic perception, and much more. In addition, the links to both videos and manuscripts for most presentations are available online: http://www.stereoscopic.org/2015/program.html
The availability of presentation videos is made possible with the support of our conference projection sponsors: DepthQ 3D, Christie, and Tekamaki. We also thank the authors for granting permission to allow their presentations to be viewed online and for contributing to the greater knowledge of stereoscopic 3-D imaging.
