Technology has advanced far beyond stereoscopic 3D. Motion images can now include detailed volumetric representations of the real world, with interaction by real characters.

This session will provide an overview of the range of contemporary image capture techniques, including 360-degree cameras, photogrammetry, free view-point video and light field cinematography, including recent work in creating standards for image interchange.

You will learn about the challenges and trade-offs in capturing volumetric images with "six degrees of freedom", and the various approaches of encoding these either as photons – such as in traditional filmmaking -- or as a computer model to be reconstructed on the viewer's device.

Finally, we'll hear an update from the most innovative example so far:
The Lytro light field cinema camera, and the Immerge virtual reality imaging system.
