The 3D-Alliance Karlsruhe pursues the following goals:

Mutual educational support in all 3D-relevant areas
Emphasis on the development of 3D documentary and reportage formats
Collective effort in developing technical solutions (rigging, software, transmission)
Creation of a conjoint degree program for stereoscopers
Establishment of mutually utilizable live-3D teaching and learning facilities
Organisation of the 3D symposium
Organisation of the 3D festival BEYOND
Publishing of the school-/textbook "3D"

Exemplary applicational areas of productions:

Concert broadcasting
Lecture transmissions (iTunes U)
Common news coverage

Through the co-operation of various universities with diverse foci and the result-oriented target a maximum degree of quality is guaranteed. The project shall culminate in the founding of a 3D-stereoscoper degree program or study branch.
