MOBILE3DTV at eChallenges e-2009

METU representing Mobile3DTV Project has participated in eChallenges Conference e-2009, 21 - 23 October 2009, Istanbul, Turkey; the 19th of annually held international conference series, supported by European Commission and technically co-sponsered by IEEE. Detailed information about the conference can be found here.

WP3 Leader Gozde Akar from METU gave a presentation in the Workshop titled “Turkey in European Research Programmes – Success Stories” . During the 3 days of the conference, we had a demonstration stand of our DVB-H end-to-end broadcast system in the eChallenge Exhibition area. The stand included the transmission, reception, processing and display of stereo coded video over DVB-H. Also a 17” autostereoscopic display and IPhone with 3D Sheet are used to let the visitors experience 3D in different applications.

During the conference we’ve received feedback from participants of various backgrounds including commercial, government and research organizations. Participants had a chance to experience stereo video personally with the help of an IPhone and autostereoscopic sheet.

At the end of the conference our project has been awarded with “Runner-Up Demonstration Stand Award” which is presented by Mehmet Gokgoz, Director of Turkish Research and Business Organizations (TURBO).
