The 3D@Home Consortium, dedicated to accelerating the adoption of quality 3D into homes worldwide by providing accurate and non-branded information on emerging 3D technology, has formed a new steering team to assist 3D stakeholders in understanding the impact of viewing digitally-created stereoscopic and auto-stereoscopic images on the human physiology. The team will be chaired by Philip Corriveau, principal engineer and director of the user experience research group at Intel, and vice-chaired by Paulette Pantoja, CEO of BluFocus, both active members of the 3D@Home Consortium.
 
Researchers from around the world have long been studying the human response to 3D, but have lacked an ongoing, organized method to share results, communicate, and compare findings with the technology community. 3D@Home’s membership of 40+ companies worldwide, with products across the 3D eco-system can provide the community-wide forum necessary to support the new team. Additionally, in its first two years of operation, 3D@Home has established relationships with many organizations involved in 3D, including the 3DFIC in Korea, the 3DConsortium of Japan, C3D of China, and 3DIDA of Taiwan. These relationships will be leveraged to ensure that the human factors activity covers the globe. 
 
“Many industry and academic groups, governing bodies and vision experts from around the world have been addressing stereoscopic effects for many years," said Corriveau in a statement. "Creating a repository of information and then identifying, defining and driving key areas for additional research will ensure that the science impacts and advances 3D technology development.”
