Cameron, Pace join 3-D Summit

Duo added to speaker lineup at convention

Director James Cameron and 3-D camera pioneer Vince Pace have joined the speaker lineup at the 3-D Entertainment Summit.

Cameron will deliver the keynote for the event in a conversation with Pace. The pair are longtime collaborators who worked together on Cameron’s underwater 3-D documentaries and developed the cameras now in use on Cameron’s Fox tentpole, “Avatar.”

The 3-D Entertainment Summit is skedded for Dec. 1-2 at the Century Plaza Hotel in Los Angeles.

Also confirmed for the lineup are “Journey to the Center of the Earth” helmer Eric Brevig and producer Charlotte Huggins.

They join previously announced DreamWorks Animation topper Jeffrey Katzenberg and Fox Sports Television Group chairman and CEO David Hill. Both have been major evangelists for 3-D.

Interest in 3-D has been growing rapidly in the movie business as the necessary digital cinema deployment deals have been completed and the next wave of stereoscopic 3-D tentpoles approaches, including Disney’s “Bolt” later this month.

On the TV side, consumer electronics firms are expected to unveil 3-D homevideo and television systems aimed at the North American market within a few months.

3-D TV programming is already available in Japan on a limited basis.
