Stereoscopic 3D News from CeBIT 2010 Currently Held in Germany

Quote:


CeBIT is a tradeshow for the digital industry held each year in Hannover, Germany and you can consider it to be something like the European alternative of CES. CeBIT 2010 is currently being held (March 2nd – March 6th) and there are already some interesting S3D news and products being shown or announced during the expo. So here is in brief some information about the stereoscopic 3D-capable products that might get your attention and that will soon be available commercially, so that they can be bought…

Sunny Ocean 3D Display without Glasses also at CeBIT 2010 [Update]

Quote:


Update: I got more technical details on the Sunny Ocean 3D display. The system uses special optics and a software algorithm to display 3D in 64 perspectives. The "inter-images" needed are the result of an automatic calculation (non real-time). Using Sunny Ocean's own algorithm the images are computed into a screen image and presented on the display. The "up-stream" optic in front of the display projects defined image parts in 64 angles, which can be described as one viewing zone. Between the intersection of two viewing zones, the images are "jumping" from 1 to 64 (pseudoscopic inver-sion). In the white areas in between the pseudoscopic inversion areas, the projections are overlapping, which could cause a blurry pseudoscopic vision. But thanks to the 64 views, an observer will have an excellent 3D impression in almost all parts of the entire viewing area.

HDMI LICENSING, LLC RELEASES HDMI SPECIFICATION VERSION 1.4A

Latest Version Specifies Mandatory 3D Formats For Broadcast Content

SUNNYVALE, Calif., March 4, 2010 – HDMI Licensing, LLC today announced the release of the HDMI Specification Version 1.4a, featuring key enhancements for 3D applications including the addition of mandatory 3D formats for broadcast content as well as the addition of the 3D format referred to as Top-and-Bottom. The complete HDMI Specification Version 1.4a, along with the Compliance Test Specification (CTS) Version 1.4a, is available to HDMI Adopters on the HDMI Adopter Extranet.

In addition, an extraction of the 3D portion of the HDMI Specification Version 1.4a is available for public download at

http://www.hdmi.org. The purpose of the extraction document is to provide public access to the 3D portion of the HDMI Specification for companies and organizations that are not HDMI Adopters but require access to this portion of the Specification.

The latest HDMI Specification adds key enhancements to support the market requirements for bringing broadcast 3D content into the home:
  1. The addition of Top-and-Bottom to the Specification.
  2. The addition of two mandatory formats for broadcast content:
    • Side-by-Side Horizontal
    • Top-and-Bottom
With the addition of these two mandatory formats, the HDMI Specification Version 1.4a provides a level of interoperability for devices designed to deliver 3D content over the HDMI connection. The mandatory 3D formats are:

Mandatory 3D Formats
  • For movie content:
    • Frame Packing
      • 1080p @ 23.98/24Hz
  • For game content:
    • Frame Packing
      • 720p @ 50 or 59.94/60Hz
  • For broadcast content:
    • Side-by-Side Horizontal
      • 1080i @ 50 or 59.94/60Hz
    • Top-and-Bottom
      • 720p @ 50 or 59.94/60Hz
      • 1080p @ 23.97/24Hz
Implementing the mandatory formats of the HDMI Specification facilitates interoperability among devices, allowing devices to speak a common 3D language when transmitting and receiving 3D content. The mandatory requirements for devices implementing 3D formats are:
  • Displays – must support all mandatory formats.
  • Sources – must support at least one mandatory format.
  • Repeaters - must be able to pass through all mandatory formats.
HDMI Adopters will have 90 days from the publication of the HDM Specification Version 1.4a to build and sell products that are compliant with the HDMI Specification Version 1.4a as well as pass the CTS Version 1.4a. This also applies to legacy set-top boxes that may have upgraded to use Specification Version 1.4 signaling.

For more information about the HDMI specification please visit http://www.hdmi.org.

Researchers Chase 3D Without the Glasses

It's the talk of consumer electronics and gaming. Depending on who you ask, 3D could change the way we watch TV and play computer games, but there's one thing it seems everyone is agreed on: who wants to wear those goofy glasses?

Thanks for the links. That 3D video camera seems to be a step down from the Fuji product already on the market - both in price and quality. That said it may be easier to use to display images onto a TV?
