Specifically, they will use a Sony SRXR320 3D Projector and a Silver Screen to show the 3D images and distribute 3D glasses for attendees. Attendees will be treated to a mixture of content from Sony and other content providers, including movies, live sporting events, gaming and other entertainment.
The release of numerous 3D movies has created a tremendous amount of interest in 3D beyond the cinema. But in moving from the cinema to the home, there are additional challenges. In his presentation, Glasgow will describe Sony's concept of the "lens-to-living room" ecosystem for 3D, encompassing content creation, processing, delivery and viewing in the home.
"We are thrilled to have Mr. Glasgow serve as the keynote for the SID DisplaySearch Business Conference," noted Paul Semenza, DisplaySearch Senior Vice President. "Sony is a pioneer in 3D, in regards to both TV and content, and Glasgow's presentation will be beneficial to all those in the 3D display supply chain."

Prior to this role he served as president of Sony Electronics Consumer Sales Company where his responsibilities included management of the company's retail and online sales channels, in addition to oversight of the SonyStyle retail store strategy in the United States.
Previously, Glasgow was senior vice president of Sony Electronics Information Technology Products Division. Glasgow joined Sony in 2001 as vice president of computer displays.
