The 38th National Stereoscopic Association Convention
July 25th-30th, 2012   •   Hilton, 3050 Bristol St., Costa Mesa, CA 92626


The 3-D Den ("Stere-O-Deon"), chaired by Oliver Dean

Wednesday, July 25, through Saturday, July 28, from 10:00 AM to 6:00 PM
Easily recognized by its entrance, a "Stere-O-Deon" doorway styled in a manner suggesting the early 20th century Nickel-O-Deon "traveling light" entrances, the 3-D Den is a place where visitors can enjoy 3-D Stereo as it was in the years before digital photography. The main room of the den features exhibits of vintage film cameras, viewers, and posters. Vintage magazine stereo viewers, which display multiple stereo slide views by sliding a handle, turning a knob, or pressing a button, are available for visitors to sample beautiful film transparencies, in sharp, bright, ghost-free stereo. Many subjects are available, such as award-winning slides from the archives of the LA 3D Club, Bavaria and its Castles of Ludwig II, and for Worlds Fair fans, the Vancouver Expo of 1986. In a second room of the den, visitors can watch periodic showings of classic View Master reels, displayed by a special, rare, View Master Stereo Projector. And for those who simply want to relax and enjoy a show, "Stereography - A Fresher Portrayal" and vintage 3d Movies will be shown in a third room of the Den (see schedule posted at the Registration and Hospitality Desk and at the Den).
