S2D Switch, unveiled at CES 2011, allows SENSIO partners to deliver compelling 3D experience through more flexible consumption of 3D content
At CES 2011, SENSIO Technologies Inc. (SENSIO) (TSX.V: SIO) today unveiled the SENSIO® S2D Switch, a feature that enables a spatially-compressed stereoscopic (3D) video stream to be displayed in 2D (left- or right-eye). The SENSIO® S2D Switch gives consumers viewing flexibility, making 3DTVs incorporating the technology a sounder investment and therefore enhancing their appeal.
“We are committed to providing our partners with the technology and tools they need to deliver a winning viewing experience for the consumer,” said Nicholas Routhier, SENSIO President and CEO. “While our SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D technology offers unrivalled image fidelity for an immersive 3D experience, the SENSIO® S2D Switch gives consumers the flexibility to enjoy 3D content in 2D. With this offering, we add value to our partners’ 3D products and eliminate a potential barrier to consumer investment in 3D technologies.”
Whether the consumer invests in a 3D movie via video-on-demand (VOD), or records content from a subscribed 3D channel on a DVR, the SENSIO® S2D Switch allows that content to be viewed in either 3D or in 2D. When the entire extended family sits down for a holiday movie, when the whole team shows up to watch the game, or when there are more kids at the slumber party than there are 3D glasses, the SENSIO® S2D Switch allows the entire group to enjoy watching 3D content in HD 2D.
The SENSIO® S2D Switch is one of a range of SENSIO products developed to enable the best possible 3D end-user experience, and one of the new SENSIO products being officially launched at CES 2011.
