    Panel: Digital Illusion: Theme Park Visualization-Part One

Course Organizer(s):



Presenter(s):



Abstract:


    Interactive techniques and high-resolution visualization are being combined into new forms of location-based entertainment (LBE) attractions in theme parks. These installations typically are unique, expensive, and exciting in ways not previously possible. Many computer graphics professionals view the theme park-LBE facet of the entertainment industry as a new potential market for their products and services. It is a diverse array of converging technologies in computing, communications, and entertainment. Some of the attractions can accurately be considered user interfaces. 

    Panelists will represent the following viewpoints: the client, the producer, the designer/ creative director, and the theorist (the future of multimodal interfaces). Special two-panel structure.
