Hi All,

WGAN-TV will livestream the VR/AR Association San Francisco Chapter Meetup 6-8:30 pm PDT [UTC/GMT -7 hours] Wednesday, 13 September 2017: Road to the Holodeck: Lightfields and Volumetric VR

The WGAN-TV livestream will appear on the front page of the We Get Around Network Forum.

If you are in San Francisco, you can attend in person. Register Here.

For the VR/AR Association's next SF Chapter event, we'll dive into lightfields.

Join us for an evening of networking, demos, food and illuminating discussion.

Speakers:

✓ Alex Song, Director of Engineering, VR, Lytro
✓ Colvin Pitts, Senior Architect, Lytro
✓ Eric Trabold, Chief Business Officer, Avegant
✓ Ryan Damm, Lightfield Thought Leader, Co-Founder, Visby
✓ Emily Olman, SF Chapter Co-President, VRARA; Founder, Hopscotch Interactive
✓ Mike Boland, SF Chapter Co-President, VRARA; Chief Analyst, ARtillry

What's a lightfield, you ask?

Several technologies are required for VR's holy grail: the fabled holodeck. We already have graphical VR experiences that let us move throughout volumentric spaces, such as video games. And we have photorealistic media that lets us look around a 360 plane from a fixed position (a.k.a. head tracking).

But what about the best of both worlds?

We're talking volumetric spaces in which you can move around, but are also photorealistic. In addition to things like positional tracking and lots of processing horsepower, the heart of this vision is lightfields. They define how photons hit our eyes and render what we see.
Because it's a challenge to capture photorealistic imagery from every possible angle in a given space -- as our eyes do in real reality -- the art of lightfields in VR involves extrapolating many vantage points, once a fixed point is captured. And that requires clever algorithms, processing, and whole lot of data.

Evening Agenda

6:00 - Welcome Reception, Networking & Demos
7:00 - Program Begins (agenda forthcoming)
8:00 - Closing Reception, Networking
8:30 - Event Ends

WGAN-TV is a Media Sponsor of this event. Special thanks to We Get Around Network Forum Member @Hopscotch Interactive Founder Emily Olman – and SF Chapter Co-President, VRARA; Founder - for enabling this livestream.

Hi All,

I apologize for the delay.

While we were suppose to livestream starting at 9 pm ET, I could imagine that because the panel does not begin until 10 pm ET, that we will give the feed between now and then.
