Lightspeed Design /DepthQ (Bellevue, USA) announces its receiptf of the U.S Patent No. 8,066,377 for inventing a color sequencing control method that allows 3D single-chip projectors to effectively produce high-performance displays with 3D active glasses and polarization modulators by resolving color artifacts and ghosting issues.
This new invention not only solved image quality problems, it accomplished that while utilizing the standard, off-the-shelf hardware configuration of single-chip 2D projectors. This allowed single-chip 2D projectors to operate either in 2D or in stereoscopic 3D, thereby creating a practical, cost-effective 3D product. The application of this invention paved the way for the now industry-wide standard of "3D Ready."
John Lasseter is working on the CARS spin-off, called Planes and featuring a courageous small crop dusting plane called Duster.
