Scott Wilkinson

Scott joins us to talk about how the Sony OLED TV won the great Value Electronics Shootout. He's written a great article about it here. Also, this week, Scott attended a monthly meeting of SMPTE, the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers, about immersive technologies. Scott says that the talk was about how 3D is essentially simulated. How do you get an authentic holographic presentation? The current solution is through Light Fields. TVs come at only one direction, whereas holograms use multiple directions to create and capture the 3D image. If you can capture and reproduce it, it could be indisquishable from the real thing. And people are working really hard to make light fields become a reality.
