The Advanced Imaging Society welcomes companies committed to excellence, who share in the aim in the next generation of premium consumer technology. The Advanced Imaging Society holds their annual Lumière Awards with a large number of nominated VR works presented across different categories.
The Advanced Imaging Society was formed in 2009 by our industry’s creative stakeholders including The Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures, DreamWorks Animation (DWA), Sony, Paramount, IMAX, Dolby, Panasonic, MasterImage and others to advance the creative arts and sciences of stereoscopic 3D. As new cutting edge technologies come to the forefront, the Society has been charged with “informing the content pipeline” of professionals on these emerging innovations.
With chapters in the U.S., China, Japan, the E.U., India and the U.K., the organization serves thousands of professional participants in over 20 countries active in improving the arts and technologies of advanced imaging.
