“We found Immersed 2014 great for learning about other leading developments in Virtual Reality technology and content creation, so I’m thrilled to be a part of the speaker lineup at Immersed 2015. It’s a great opportunity to talk to the VR community about the technology Christie is creating in this field, including our innovative forms of ‘off-the-head’ immersive displays.” – Gord Harris, Senior Program Manager, Christie Digital

This must-attend event now features over thirty industry-leading speakers from all over the world. The schedule has been updated with detailed abstracts, and the multi-faceted technical workshop day covers stereoscopic 3D cinema, virtual reality, and 360 degree audio.
