New 3D TV can be Viewed With or Without Glasses at the Same Time
Posted on: 06/07/2012 03:15 AM

TandemLaunch Technologies, a Montreal-based accelerator for university inventions, revealed a number of advanced technologies at the Society for Information Display (2012 SID) Innovation Zone in Boston.

Demonstrations which TandemLaunch will display include a ground breaking image processing technology that allows consumer electronic devices take full advantage of their high-resolution retina displays. This is done through on-the-fly elimination of motion blurring; the result is considerably crisper pictures.



TandemLaunch also exhibits a recently conceived smart 3D TV technology. This new technology is not just some silly internet apps on your TV - it gives your family and friends the ability to simultaneously watch 3D video content either in 2D without glasses or 3D with glasses according to each individual’s preference. TV tech uses advanced perceptual modeling for 3D disparity, which substitutes stereo disparity with optical illusions that achieve a similar depth perception for the user. Its the same kind of illusion they use in projection mapping. Furthermore, the algorithms achieve significant compression of 3D content allowing a much more efficient 3D TV broadcast. Other university developed prototypes shown by TandemLaunch Technologies at the SID conference include advanced video stabilization and natural interaction with displays through long-range eye tracking. This is some serious stuff!

“New technologies with highly disruptive potential continuously emerge through our vast global university network in North America, Europe and Asia-Pacific”, explained Helge Seetzen, CEO of TandemLaunch Technologies. “We work in partnership with the display industry and consumer electronics companies to accelerate adoption of university R& ;D in the multimedia space. TandemLaunch is actively shaping the display industry landscape through technology assessment, benchmarking and development in OLED, flexible displays, 3D and display interaction technologies. The interactive display market is expected to surpass $900 billion by 2016 with applications in virtual & augmented reality, gaming, telepresence, robotics, advertising, digital signage and automotive industries”

We have not been able to find any information about pricing or availability.
