What does the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft do? And what role does it play?The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is the largest organization for applied research in Europe. With over 60 institutes across Germany, its creative system and technology-oriented innovations contribute to affirming the economic competitiveness of Germany and the whole of Europe.
What precisely is the role played by the Heinrich Hertz Institute (HHI) as just one of the great number of Fraunhofer Institutes?Located in Berlin, Fraunhofer HHI is dedicated to dealing with issues of communication technology and is a worldwide leader in the development of mobile and fixed broadband communication networks and multimedia systems.
What is 3D or S3D?Generally speaking 3D simply means three dimensional – or objects in three dimensional space. But when it comes to (motion) pictures 3D should really be called S3D because S or stereo 3D refers to the spatial representation created by two images. The technique that creates this effect is called “stereoscopy” (or stereoscopic or 3D imaging) which is reproduction of images that create the illusion of spatial depth.
Why do we need 3D glasses?
First of all, 3D glasses make it possible to see the spatial depth of the two images that stereoscopic techniques present to the viewer’s left and right eye. Signals from the two images need to reach the brain simultaneously yet by separate channels which is made possible by filtering in the 3D glasses.
What is color anaglyph?
You’re sure to have come across those 3D glasses where one lens or foil is red and the other blue or green: an anaglyph image is formed by the slightly offset superimposing of two complimentary colored stereoscopic pictures. The 'color' glasses filter the pictures to give the wearer the illusion of three dimensional space.
