New York-based 3DFusion Corp claims to have accomplished a major breakthrough in Auto Stereoscopoic Display (ASD) technology for glasses-free 3DTV.
3DFusion has incorporated the former Philips technology with their proprietary 3DFMAX IP to create a new Math based Depth Meta Data 3DTV platform. This ‘picture perfect’ broadcast quality 3DFMax platform is exclusive to 3DFusion, which claims it solves many of the historical 3D viewing issues, from 2D content conversion to live 3d camera capture.
For most consumers 3D can only be seen in the cinema, where special glasses are required to look at 3D movies. With 3DFusions technology it is possible to watch these movies at home with a special 3D TV (which is also suited for 2D viewing). The 3DFMax Auto stereoscopic TV produces 3D with stunning quality, no visual side effects, no dizziness, no sweet spots and no headaches or nausea. It is comfortable enough to be watched for hours at a time, and it is a seamless replacement for 2D TV.
The first 3DFusion ASD 3DTV production run targets digital-signage and entertainment. The company is projecting a first roll out of 5,000 digital signage units for the second quarter 2011. Digital signage ASD requires 3DFusion to produce re-mastered 2D content conversion.
Without having seen the technology in action, it’s hard to pass judgement, but if the company’s claims turn out to be realistic, one of the greatest hurdles to widespread take up of 3DTV could be a step closer to being cleared.
