The Certifi3D program

“Our 3D certification platform allows our stereo technicians to quickly and precisely diagnose many of the issues that create viewer fatigue and discomfort” says Pierre (Pete) Routhier, Technicolor’s Vice President for 3D product strategy and business development. “Our goal in launching the Certifi3D program was to take a proactive approach in support of the industry to ensure a consistent and quality end consumer 3D experience in the home.”

Technicolor is a leader in providing an array of 3D services to its media and entertainment customers ranging from 3D visual effects, post production, Blu-ray 3D services, 3D VOD encoding to mobile 3D.
