Key part here is 3D without glasses for 2D to 3D scenarios. I'm still a little confused as to 3D stereoscopic content (with glasses) to 3D autostereoscopic (without glasses). What is the experience difference with and without glasses? Is there a sweet spot that the person must be sitting at to get the 3D affect without glasses?
I guess we have to wait till CES to find out.
PHILADELPHIA , Dec. 22, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Stream TV Networks, Inc. announced today that it will unveil its new Ultra-D technology at CES 2012. Ultra-D is a next generation 3D without glasses display technology that surpasses all 3D viewing experiences offered to date.
Developed by Stream TV Networks, Inc., the producer of the eLocity brand of mobile tablets launched first in 2010, the Ultra-D technology is strictly proprietary and leverages custom hardware, middleware techniques and software algorithms to create unprecedentedautostereoscopic 3D imagery. This technology will provide consumers with access tounlimited 3D content by enabling real-time conversion of:
- [*] 2D content into 3D autostereoscopic (without glasses) [*] 3D stereoscopic content (with glasses) to 3D autostereoscopic (without glasses)
Another key differentiator of the Ultra-D technology enables customization of the 3D effect to address individual differences in spatial perception and the varying impact of 3D rendering on viewer comfort. The technology allows users to increase or decrease the real-time 3D rendering effect, adjusting for variance in content quality and source as well as personal preference so that consumers can use all Ultra-D products to achieve the optimal 3D picture every time.
"We are extremely proud of what we have been able to accomplish with our Ultra-D technology. It is capable of creating a significant shift in the way people view media, comparable to the transition from black and white to color TV," said Mathu Rajan , CEO of Stream TV Networks, Inc. "Our ultimate goal was to create a solution that addresses existing concerns impeding the adoption of 3D—consumer aversion to expensive glasses, viewer discomfort, variance in individual vision and preference and the slow creation of 3D content. It seemed we were aiming for the impossible but we've made it possible and will be sharing these hard-won achievements with consumers in 2012. Ultra-D is the next generation 3D technology designed to replace 3D with glasses and win preference over 2D devices."
The Ultra-D brand includes 3D-enabling products in the following categories:
- [*] TVs [*] Converter Boxes [*] Tablets [*] Desktop All-in-One PCs [*] Gaming [*] Laptops [*] Digital Signage [*] Mobile Phones [*] Digital Picture Frames
Stream TV's mission is to bring to market innovative products featuring state-of-the-art technology designed to enhance consumer experience and simplify their digital lifestyle. Its line of consumer products stands to take the media viewing experience to new levels through high end displays and graphics technologies.
