About us




The Dem-3DTV was created as an innovation, experimentation and co-creation environment, where researchers, companies, standardization bodies and public institutions work together, searching for new solutions, products or services, involving real users in all the research process, promoting cooperation.

Research lines

Digital Image and Video Processing, Video Coding, Audiovisual Communications, 3DTV, Computer Vision, Multimedia, 3D graphics.


The Ministry of Industry, in collaboration with the public company and UPM, have established a Digital Content Production and Experimentation center within the Dem-3DTV, whose goal is the creation of educational programs for students and professionals.





The main target of the 3D Television Demonstrator (Dem-3DTV) is to have an infrastructure that gives support for research, development and testing of three-dimensional television equipment considering the whole chain of signal manipulation.

Capturing systems

The Dem-3DTV is equipped with a system of 3D compact cameras (semi-professional and consumer) and 2D cameras configured in a rig, allowing the acquisition of visual content from multiple viewpoints. Thus, the Dem-3DTV can generate its own digital content that is used, among other objectives, for the publication of research results.


Lighting and audio systems

It is equipped with a lighting system that is adequate for shootings in chroma-key environments. It is also equipped with an audio system that is compatible with every camera that is available in the Dem-3DTV, as well as a surrounding audio system that enables immersive experiences.

Postproduction system

Several systems for the processing of stereoscopic signals have been acquired: both educational and professional. These systems include DI systems, edition, composing, effects and color correction for 2D and 3D productions, in any resolution from SD to 2K. They handle real-time processing of time-lines using high-end equipment and provide creative capacities and techniques that are superior to standard tools offered by other finishing and color correction systems.

Display systems

The Dem-3DTV is equipped with a wide range of 3D display systems: several stereoscopic (two views) displays and TVs, with sizes up to 55”, for shutter and passive glasses, a stereoscopic projector with passive glasses and a 28-view auto-stereoscopic display that offers different viewpoints depending on the observer position, allowing perceiving visual information with depth and perspective. These systems can be used in the demonstration of new technologies and research results, both own and from external companies.

Playing systems

To facilitate the display of 3D content in the Dem-3DTV, several playing systems were acquired for the generation of 3D signals that are compatible with existing display systems without lost of resolution.

Information processing systems

The Dem-3DTV counts with multiples signal processing systems for the digitalization, analysis, coding and representation of 3DS video signals.
