3D A to Z an Encyclopedic Dictionary

Richard Kroon of Technicolor has written a definitive dictionary of 3D Terms.  

Since the invention of the stereoscope in 1830, stereoscopic 3D has remained on the cutting edge of the media and entertainment industry. Every 20 to 30 years, a new generation rediscovers stereo filmmaking, fueling its resurgence with additional twists introduced by the technological advancements of the intervening years. 

This encyclopedic dictionary offers a definitive compilation of information on the art and science of stereoscopic 3D, including still and moving images; film and digital image acquisition; production, post-production, distribution, and exhibition; and human visual perception. In addition to standard dictionary definitions, it includes many extended encyclopedic entries and nearly 300 black-and-white and color illustrations. Taking the mystery out of 3D's unique language, the work provides a basis for clear communication among industry professionals and historical context for those new to the discipline.


3DD 3D A to Z $75.00



Rick Baumgartner, 3D Visual Effects professional

Every page brings either entirely new terms or causes me to rethink terms I thought I already knew.

Brian McFarlane, author of The Encyclopedia of British Film

Richard Kroon's 3D A-to-Z takes on an astounding amount of information, and, in language of admirable clarity, makes it accessible even to the technologically challenged such as myself. 3D is a phenomenon that refuses to go away and Mr. Kroon's book is an invaluable resource for those who want to know how it works.

Daniel Symmes, Past-President 3-D Film Preservation Fund and co-author of Amazing 3-D.

Richard Kroon's tireless effort to tackle a very complex technical field (stereoscopic imagery) is quite simply AMAZING. This should go a long way to get some people to stop saying "interocular" when they are referring to the distance between stereo lenses (the "interaxial"). Short tables of terms have been seen in past literature but nothing like this. Anyone WRITING about 3D should consult this work. Most journalists don't know right from wrong in this field; this book can enable them to write accurate facts for a change. Finally, the definitive dictionary of the stereoscopic (technical) arts.

Bernard Mendiburu, author of 3D Movie Making and 3DTV and 3D Cinema

This book is a must. Either you get it, or you'll just fall flat.

Christine Geraghty, Professor of Film and Television Studies, University of Glasgow

If 3D is the future of screen media, then this is the handbook to guide you through the technology. Wide-ranging and up to date, with clear illustrations and diagrams. The definitions are crisp, authoritative and comprehensible even to those without a science background.

John A. Rupkalvis, CEO of StereoScope International and Co-Chair Lexicon Committee, Stereoscopic Displays and Applications IS&T/SPIE

Many people in the industry are misusing or applying different meanings to commonly-used words and terms in the field of stereoscopy. This has resulted in a lot of widespread confusion and costly misunderstandings. Finally, we are seeing the development of this much-needed reference that should go a long way toward alleviating this problem.
