DDD Group plc (AIM: DDD), the 3D consumer technology licensing group, has entered into a license agreement with LG Electronics (“LG”) to bundle DDD’s TriDef® 3D PC software products with LG’s growing line of 3D PC products.
The two-year license agreement allows LG to ship DDD’s TriDef 3D Experience software with LG’s 3D PC products, including the recently introduced range of 3D notebook PCs and desktop PC monitors, that were showcased at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January, 2011.
LG’s 3D PC products are based on the polarized 3D system, delivering an ultimate 3D viewing experience with comfortable, lightweight 3D glasses.
Available in over 30 languages, DDD’s TriDef 3D software allows hundreds of the very latest PC games to be played in stereoscopic 3D ‘off the shelf’, even though the game has not been specifically developed for 3D.
DDD’s TriDef Ignition™ 2D to 3D game conversion engine is compatible with DirectX 9, 10 and 11 games. Its unique high-performance stereoscopic 3D render mode enables 3D gaming on LG’s 3D PC model line up with no significant compromise in performance and is compatible with PC graphics processors from both AMD and nVIDIA as well as Intel’s 2nd Gen Core processors.
In addition to a wide variety of PC games, DDD’s TriDef Media Player automatically converts PC media and photo files from 2D to 3D along with DVD movies.
LG will also include a selection of original 3D movie trailers drawn from the growing library of high definition 3D movies available on DDD’s Yabazam! website, rounding out their comprehensive 3D offering.
Chris Yewdall, chief executive of DDD said: “The selection by LG as its content solution provider for their range of 3D notebook PCs and desktop monitors is another important milestone for us. We are looking forward to building upon the royalty income from shipments that are expected to start in early 2011 as LG expands its line-up of PC products that will include TriDef.”
