DaVinci 3D, the Best 3D converter ?
DaVinci 3D made its cinematic debut today with its amazing glasses free 3D stereoscopic conversion software. Jim Chabin, CEO of the International 3D Society, asked the CEO of DaVinci 3D Steve Blumenthal, to convert the closing montage for the American Ophthamologist Association (AOA) meeting video, which is part of the International 3D Society's outreach program. DaVinci 3D used the opportunity to introduce its new stereoscopic conversion process, bringing the footage into the 3D world. This is the first time DaVinci 3D undertook the enormous challenge of stereoscopic conversion for the big screen - they had to adapt their small display processing for theatrical screens.
Additinal info (10 October 2012): Davinci3D is annoucing its autostereoscopic 3DTV set with adjustable depth controls and "endless viewing comfort". DaVinci has also announced a VOD 3DTV ROKU internet channel, and is scheduled to launch in the first quarter of 2013.This internet channel is designed to provide 3D stereoscopic content for “With Glasses Consumer stereoscopic 3DTVs”.
DaVinci 3D has a ground breaking line of both 3DTV ASD hardware, and 3DTV conversion applications set to debut soon. Their automatic and semi-automatic 2D to 3D conversion methodology is both low cost and gives broadcast quality for small screen viewing. Blumenthal, DaVinci founder and CEO, summarized with "What differentiates DaVinci 3D from the field is that our methodology mimics the way the eye's see in the integration of both our hardware and content conversion technology. The result is a natural, non-abusive 3D image that can be viewed as comfortably as HD TV."
DaVinci 3D will introduce business to business glasses free, autostereoscopic 3D sets at the 3D Entertainment Summit in LA this September. Initial sizes will include a 27", 42", and 55". Blumenthal continued, "Our Chicago debut of theatrical content for 2D to 3D conversion clearly demonstrates that our conversion technology has 'legs'. Our 2D to 3D conversion is convincing skeptics and nay sayers that 3D conversion is 'Alive and Well' as a viable option. Everyone knows now that the market demand for 3D With Glasses content can only be adequately addressed by conversion. The beauty of our With Glasses conversion is that it is instantly applicable on our ASD, glasses free screens. We are very close to transferring this 'off line' conversion into a 'live on the fly' process for our DaVinci 3D ASD technology."
