Three-dimensional photography has been in use for more than 100 years. Simple examples could be found already at the end of the 19th century. Since the great success of the movie “Avatar” in 2009 3D has been widely talked about. There are more and more 3D cinemas and 3D displays (example Fig. 43.1). In this chapter basics and the principle of 3D technology are explained beginning with the human anatomy and continuing with camera-, transmission- and presentation technology.
