CGArena, iZ3D, and MTBS Launch S-3D CG Art Contest for SIGGRAPH 2008

Winners Will Be Rewarded With Special Prizes From iZ3D, AMD, and Epic Games. Stereoscopic 3D (S-3D) refers to the ability to display true volumetric 3D content through 2D media.

Stereoscopic 3D (S-3D) is easily one of the most talked about technologies in the gaming market and Meant to be Seen, CGArena, and iZ3D have teamed up to launch a special S-3D CG art contest at SIGGRAPH with the help of some exciting prizes put forward by leading industry members.

Stereoscopic 3D (S-3D) refers to the ability to display true volumetric 3D content through 2D media. Examples include explosions that pop out of the screen, and a sense of depth that makes players think they can reach inside the game. S-3D technology is quickly becoming the equipment of choice for avid gamers and has already shown as much as 3:1 revenue benefits over 2D theaters in the Hollywood cinema space with films like Beowulf 3D, Journey to the Center of the Earth 3D and U2 3D.

?We wanted a fun way to show how easy it is to turn ordinary CG art into something visually exciting through stereoscopic 3D technology. Working with Meant to be Seen and CGArena to make this happen at SIGGRAPH made perfect sense for us,? said David Chechelashvili, VP of Marketing for iZ3D LLC, and makers of the leading stereoscopic 3D display and software driver solution.

Contestants are asked to submit stereoscopic 3D images of their CG artwork to a special page on www.CGArena.com. The left and right images must be in a minimum 1680X1050 resolution (16:10 aspect ratio) and in full color. To make this easier for artists, Meant to be Seen (mtbs3D.com) has written quick guides to help CG artists convert and/or capture their images in stereoscopic 3D.

Prizes up for grabs include:

First Place: One iZ3D 22? monitor
Second Place: One ATI 4800 series GPU
Third Place: A 50% discount on an iZ3D monitor + Flatout 2 Game
Four Runners Up: Unreal Tournament 3 by Epic Games

Judged by iZ3D and Meant to be Seen, images are being accepted from today until the evening of August 10th. Winners will be announced on August 13th at the iZ3D booth at SIGGRAPH.
