Stereoscopic 3D product development and enhancement continues
SENSIO Technologies Inc. (SENSIO) (TSX.V: SIO) today announced that new and upgraded products for its professional-equipment solution will be commercially available as of the IBC show in Amsterdam. Making their debut are the SENSIO® Noise Reducer, for cleaner SD, HD and stereoscopic 3D images, and multi-format versions of the SENSIO® 3D Encoder and Decoder. A key feature of all these products is that they are 100% Full Frame Compatible, supporting side-by-side and top-and-bottom formats as well as SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D. Version 2.0 of SENSIO® Autodetect – the only commercially-available technology for automatically detecting whether an incoming video stream is in 2D or stereoscopic 3D – will also be released at the show.
“Stereoscopic 3D is currently at a crossroads,” said Richard LaBerge, SENSIO Executive Vice-President and CMO. “For the medium to emerge from the testing lab and become an actual revenue stream, professional-grade solutions are required across the board that offer superior image quality, flexibility and cost-effectiveness. SENSIO’s technologies meet all these criteria, and we are committed to maintaining and improving our existing products, as well as developing new ones, in order to provide what the industry needs.”
Visitors to IBC will be able to discuss with SENSIO experts – by appointment only – how the new products and releases respond to their needs. In addition, they will be able to view the Superflex Pro Cinema Event Player (PCEP), which integrates award-winning SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D technology, to be unveiled by long-time partner International Datacasting Corporation (IDC) in their booth 1.C29 at the European broadcasting tradeshow.
“SENSIO and International Datacasting have been innovating together since 2007, deploying solutions for live 3D in cinemas,” said Frederick Godard, President and CEO, IDC. “The inclusion of SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D technology was therefore a natural choice for our Pro Cinema Event Player.”
Other professional products integrating SENSIO technologies are available from other partner companies that will be exhibiting at IBC, notably Bluestreak Technologies, Teranex Systems and Miranda Technologies.
