15:30 - 17:00 Panel: The Business of Emerging Display Technologies
Organizer: Paula Carson, University of Louisiana at Lafayette

In the past decade we have experienced a revolution in display technology, in particular immersive display technologies, and a fast deployment of a wide range of commercial products, ranging from high-end one-of-a-kind multi-surface display, to productized displays for a larger customer base. As these technologies keep evolving and becoming more main stream, one would think that we would experience a growth in business opportunities for these technologies and a wider market for these technologies. However, the business of emerging displays technologies seems to be a niche market focused towards research environments and several specific narrow vertical markets. Furthermore, there seems to be a disconnection from the business of hardware technologies and software technologies to utilize these displays. This panel brings together a group of pioneer entrepreneurs in display technologies to share their experiences on developing businesses opportunities, to talk about their challenges, and to discuss needs and trends they see for the field.

15:30 - 17:00 Panel: Creating Tools for Emerging Display Technologies
Organizer: Carolina Cruz-Neira, Louisiana Immersive Technologies Enterprise (LITE)

Today we have a wide range of display technologies to visualize, explore, and interact with virtual worlds. From large multi-screen installations to desktop autostereo displays, the choices are many; Today.s challenge is not so much what display to use or how to build it, but what set of tools are available to drive a particular display. As the hardware technology has advanced rapidly, it seems that the software has lagged behind it and the acceptance of displays is tightly dependent on the availability of software tools to create applications that can make efficient use of the display and the associated interactive devices. This panel explores the current state of software tools for advanced displays, the challenges to create such tools, and the directions toolset development are taking for the near to medium term. A group of experts will participate in the discussions, sharing their lessons learned as well as their visions for better and more rapidly available tools for exciting emerging displays.
