Las Vegas, NV, USA (January 7, 2013) /BUSINESS WIRE/ — Prior to its presentation at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, the International 3D Society today announced the companies which will be honored for achievement in 3D technology.
“The Awards Committee focuses on technologies that represent genuine advances in 3D and that have a demonstrated impact on the 3D professional or consumer,” said Jim Mainard, Chairman of the Society’s 3D Technology Awards Committee and Head of Digital Strategy at DreamWorks Animation.
“As our industry gathers at the Consumer Electronics Show to see the future of technology, the Society recognizes the people and organizations who are inventing 3D’s future,” said Jim Chabin, President of the Society. “3D movies again scored 5 of the top 10 highest grossing hits of this past year, including: ‘The Hobbit,’ ‘The Avengers,’ ‘The Amazing Spiderman,’ ‘Brave,’ and ‘Madagascar.’ 3D Blu-rays are being seen by millions of consumers on their new 3D flat screens. The companies receiving our Lumiere™ statuettes have helped to create much of this magic for fans in theatres and at home.”
Receiving honors at this year’s awards luncheon in Hollywood will be:
21st Century 3D
Entries were reviewed for innovation and impact by the Society’s 3D Technology Awards Committee for their achievement during 2012.
