3D Pioneer Gene Dolgoff Explains New 2D-3D Converter and How the Brain Works

In the first of two related episodes, Gene Dolgoff, CEO and CTO of 3-D Vision and one of the most requested return guests on Home Theater Geeks, talks about his new 2D-to-3D converter box and how it works. He also explains how listeners could support the development of the product at and submit their own design ideas for the outer casing (though that opportunity has now passed).

In Part 2, Gene discusses wave phenomena, Fourier transforms, and holography, and he explains how the brain operates holographically. This allows his 2D-to-3D converter to work very well while requiring less processing power than other systems, because your brain does much of the hard work. This is deep stuff!

Gene Dolgoff is the founder, CEO, and CTO of 3-D Vision Inc., which is involved with technology development of consumer 3-D TV and 3-D cinema. He has over 45 years of extensive experience as an innovator and entrepreneur in electronics and optics, with particular emphasis on holography, lenticular and other forms of 3-D imaging, and displays.

Mr. Dolgoff invented digital projection and started the world's first LCD projector company in 1988 (which he took public on NASDAQ in 1990), launching the digital projection industry. With funding from DARPA, he was instrumental in forging the digital direction of the US HDTV system.

At the City College of the City University of New York, he majored in Physics, Mathematics, and Electrical Engineering, and minored in Physiological Psychology. Mr. Dolgoff has published several papers in 3-D imaging, optics, holography, the brain, and LCD video projection, and has over 65 granted patents worldwide with over 40 others pending.
