"Digital Stereoscopy" is Available in Korean

Digital Stereoscopy is now available to Korean readers in their own language thansk to Korean publising house Jinsaem. The book is now available in Korean online stores for KRW 26,000 (around $24). The400-pages book is offered in a sligthly larger format that the US version (7.5"x10" or 19x25cm).

Digital Stereoscopy is the bible of modern 3D technologies in which students, amateur moviemakers, and professional stereographers will find a clear description of all facets of the stereoscopic business as well as detailed information on the 3D-image production, distribution, and presentation workflow.

Overview

Digital Stereoscopy provides a large number of technical details on all these subjects, making it a reference work for professionals in the field, with explanations of the most commonly used software, hardware, and standards. To make the book as useful as possible, an abundance of sidebars explaining the most important concepts in each chapter and a glossary of the most frequently used 3D-specific terms have also been included. Over 250 black and white diagrams and pictures complement the text, some of them accompanied by QR-code links to full-color images on the web.

Abstract

Stereoscopic images are a century old but the recent rise of digital 3D in all aspects of audiovisual production allows for a constant high level of quality, making stereoscopy pleasant and comfortable for the viewer's eyes. The range of media influenced by stereoscopy is impressive, going from motion pictures and television to print and Internet distribution.

This book will let you discover the basic principles of how we perceive objects in 3D, how we can shoot 3D pictures and movies, what digital processes are required to produce quality 3D images, and how 3D movies are distributed. It also explains less known aspects of the production workflow, such as 2D to 3D conversion, storage, real-time transmission for broadcasting, and 3D Blu-ray authoring. The various methods of displaying and projecting 3D images will be covered, along with their pros and cons.

Intended audience

This book is for anyone who wants to get involved in stereoscopic imagery or those who already work in 3D but want to hone their skills. Broadcasting students are not forgotten: The first chapters give the basic principles needed to discover 3D imagery, while the subsequent chapters contain the practical information that they will need to put them into practice.

 이 책은 스테레오스코픽 영상에 관심이 있거나 이미 3D로 작업하고 있지만 자신의 기술을 좀 더 발전시키고자 하는 사람들을 위한 것이다. 방송을 공부하는 학생들도 포함된다. 처음 몇 단원은 3D 영상을 이해하는데 필요한 기본 원칙을 제공하며, 그 다음은 기본 원칙들을 실행하기 위해 필요한 실제적인 정보를 포함하고 있다. 독자 여러분의 관심사가 사진술, 아마추어 비디오, 전문 영화 제작, 무엇이던 간에 그리고 여러분이 학생, 크리에이터, 최종 소비자이건 간에 이 책은 여러분의 첫 번째 스테레오스코픽 영상을 만드는데 필요한 기초를 제공할 것이다. 그리고 이미 첫걸음을 떼었다면, 여러분은 이 책에서 더 복잡한 프로젝트를 해결하기 위해 필요한 정보를 얻을 수 있을 것이다. 이 책은 완전 초심자용이 아니다. 독자는 사진을 찍거나 비디오 촬영의 기본을 알고 있는 것으로 간주된다. 책이 지향하는 바도 기술적인 것이다. 따라서 촬영과 사진술의 창의적이고 예술적인 측면은 심도 깊게 다루어지지 않을 것이다. 그러나 3D를 스틸이나 영화의 구도에 도입하는 것은 새로운 영상에 대한 기초 원리가 요구되기 때문에, 이를 위한 좀 더 예술적인 측면도 당연히 언급될 것이다.
