3D International Group showcases its latest products for the glasses-free 3D representation at the world’s leading fair for information technology, CeBIT 2011, at booth B29 in Hall 9.
In addition to the 3D screens made by 3DI which are available in various sizes, this year’s presentation focuses mainly on all new software products. As an outstanding product, 3DI for the first time introduces a software for the automatic conversion of stereo footage into multiview 3D videos suitable for glasses-free 3D representation. This masterpiece of software is the first commercially available product of its kind running on a platform dedicated for 3D screens. The market demand for such a product has been huge and this demand has not been satisfied so far. Thus, 3DI is confident to reach new client bases and take new market share after the product introduction. The major advantage of this software is its power to ease 3D content creation. For instance, existing stereo footage such as stereo 3D movie trailers for 3D Digital Cinema can be converted utilizing this software for the use on glasses-free 3D screens with acceptable efforts. The inherent cost and time saving is remarkable for content partners and clients. Hence the usage potential of 3D displays is increased on the market.
Right in time for CeBIT, a new upgrade version of the software product “z.l.i.c.e. 3D“, a Software for 3D Postproduction and Editing, is getting ready for release. As of today, 3DI group is the only company active in the world wide market that offers such a kind of software for explicit editing of multiview 3D contents. Such multiview contents do not only contain one image (such as for 2D use) or two images (such as for 3D digital cinema), but rather a multiple of video channels or depth data. This in turn is the prerequisite for a high quality 3D representation on no-goggles 3D screens. The new version zlice3D 3.0 supports, amongst other brand new features, the direct import of many professional video formats. Both software products will be available April 1st, 2011.
“During the past year, we have focused strongly on the development of new software products. There is a clear indication in the market that complicated 3D content creation and missing 3D contents have slowed down major projects”, says Mr. Alexander Schmidt, Managing Director of 3DI Europe and 3D International Group CTO. He points out that “Particularly our new software tool which allows the conversion from stereo views to multiple views opens up new ways of content creation. This tool is eagerly demanded by our clients and partners.”
A product of the partner company UNITED ENTERTAIN, actually an advertisement stela with integrated 3D screen, is also shown at 3DI’s booth. Just recently, 3D International and the Hamburg based corporation UNITED ENTERTAIN have formed a partnership. UNITED ENTERTAIN is specialised to bring 3D technology into the areas of Digital-out-of-Home-Media and Point of Sale (POS).
