De Montfort University through the Imaging and Displays Research Group is pleased to offer a programme of short courses in 3D imaging tailored for the film and television industry imaging specialists and those with a specific interest in the field. The course aims to equip participants with the knowledge to successfully enter the growing 3D industry.

Structure and content

The course provides a concrete understanding of basic principles and pitfalls that should be considered for 3D capture and display. Providing hands on time with state-of-the-art 3D cameras and display systems, the course combines traditional lecture sessions with "workshop" sessions at De Montfort University's holographic laboratory.

Course objectives

This course has the following objectives:
  • To provide a concrete understanding of the principles of 3D capture and display
  • To improve capabilities with up to date 3D technology, including cameras and display systems
  • To equip participants to enter the growing 3D industry

Who the course is for

The course is designed for Film and Television industry imaging specialists and those with a specific interest in the field and students requiring key understanding in photonics and wave-front reconstruction.

Key learning outcomes

This course has the following key learning outcomes for participants:
  • Build the participants understanding of the processes behind stereoscopy and stereopsis in order to assist their professional practice.
  • Increase the participants understanding of the technical challenges of using stereography.
  • To provide camera and post production professionals with a hands on practical course using up to date 3D Equipment.
  • To provide participants with an understanding of holographic imaging workflows and the issues arising from using holography in contemporary format.
  • Enable participants to develop ideas around creative expression through 3D.
