In recognition of their great contribution to increasing public knowledge about stereoscopy as a technical art and craft, the International 3D Society acknowledges Panasonic as an educational force for 3D in the 21st century. The Wheatstone Award will be formally presented to Panasonic at the 3D Technology Awards on Oct. 19 at Mann's Chinese Theatre in Hollywood.

The Wheatstone award is the Society's opportunity to recognize that effort."

Taylor, Chairman & CEO, Panasonic Corp. of North America, expressed appreciation for the honor, stating, "Panasonic is pleased to be named the first recipient of the Wheatstone Award by the International 3D Society in recognition of our efforts worldwide to promote the innovation of stereoscopic Full HD 3D."
