Stream TV makes NAB debut with glasses-free 3D tech4 April 2014
Stream TV Networks will exhibit at NAB in Las Vegas next week for the first time, and will demo its Ultra-D glasses-free 3D technology. This also marks the start of Stream TV’s relationship with 3D post production specialist, SGO.
This new programme will marry Ultra-D’s glasses-free 3D with post production facilities into a workflow that will be tested in full by London-based post facility ONSIGHT. SGO’s Mistika and Mamba FX products will also enable the creation of an Ultra-D experience. Stream TV has continued to improve this technology, making advances to both the 4K optical design and the rendering firmware that offers a user-adjustable 140° viewing experience without ‘sweet’ or ‘dead’ spots.
The company has partnered with Qualcomm Technologies to port its realtime conversion algorithms to a system-on-chip, meaning consumers can purchase a smart TV with integrated features that allow conversion of any source content into Ultra-D’s glasses-free 3D format.
“As we head into mass production and begin building a global consumer base, the demand for native and optimised Ultra-D content will grow,” said Mathu Rajan, CEO of Stream TV Networks. “NAB is the perfect place to introduce Ultra-D to the broadcast community, and with their reputation for innovation and excellence, SGO is the perfect partner for showcasing our technology.”
First off the production line will be 50 and 55-inch displays, to be followed by a additional products including a range of smart TVs, mobile phones, tablets, laptops and gaming monitors.
