its actually just getting started!

 

What People need to find out is that the crappy passive glasses is not working and must visit a cinema With XPAND Technology or buy their own DLP projector and some active glasses say ex Sainsonic and be amazed how much of a difference it is.

 

I have read some topics and it seems that most People have problems With 3D and what to play 3D files With, i myself just used most of the Winter trying out different solutions like xbmc, htpc etc etc, but only to find out that the Mede8er 800 i bought just did everything i could ever dream of.

 

I even got into 3D torrent sites to legally download copies of my own Movies, converted to SBS and T/B etc, only to find out that i could get 3D from a normal mkv file just by letting the mede8er simulate 3D.

And we are not talking about simyulating 3D With red and green glasses, but it simulates full frame packaging and my projector

belive its served FFP and displays a Perfect Picture for my Sainsonig glasses and my Benq th681 projector.'

However i did change out my old hdmi cables from some 1.4 from ebay and its all good.

 

I can even set 3D at Breaking Bad or whatever kind of series or whatever im looking at and its a Perfect Picture!

Some files like mp4 it wont display correct 3D but it can display ALL my Movies in mkv so im Guess thats more than fine!

 

Mainly im using 3D bd ISO files if available as that will give me the ultimate quality, but there is nothing wrong using mkv either.

 

A reminder is that i buy the Movie and rip it to my hdd since i dont have a blueray stand alone player.'

 

In many countries it is perfectly legal to make Your own copy, so there is no need to start a hatewar on me having a digital copy of my own ****.

 

So- i just wanted to say i have found the holy grail in my own eyes, and that 3D have NEVER been so good as now.

MY local cinema are using the dolby 3D wich are completely and utter CRAP to watch and i will never go there again, as i can wait to buy the Movie after say 3 months anyway. its not as i need to see something today because its premiered in the cinema today.

 

I urge you to Google and see if you can find a XPAND cinema somewhere Close to Your home and pay them a visit, and then we all can agree that 3D are NOT dead, its just starting up.

 

If my English suck- sorry.

 

My setup home:

 

projector Benq th681

Mede8er 800 xd

Onkyo tx nr-609

102" screen

Sainsonic active 144hz glasses from ebay

Netgear NAS.

 

-------------------

For People who wants to use red/green glasses on their old tvs the mede8er can also simulate 3D for that,

 

 

http://www.slashfilm.com/qa-best-3d-format/

 

i have tried all formats, also realD and all the other crap.

XPAND is the best without limit!

 

Its obvious that the writer of the link is bought off, and the xpand is easier to wear and fit better than the dolby3d.

The polarized cheap yeallow glasses for reald is of course the easiest one to wear, but im looking for best Picture, not if im gonna run out of batteries wich i have never did.

3D now dominates my viewing. I own just about everything out there that is in 3D and I'm currently using the 2D to 3D conversion of the Mits 7900/8000 DLP projector for everything else. I'm about to purchase a Teranex 2D to 3D processor to feed 3D from a 2D source to some other 3D projectors I own.

I'm lucky enough to see the world in colour and that's how I want to see movies. I'm also fortunate to have very good depth perception -- I see the world in 3D and that's how I want to see film. I find both colour and 3D draw me deeper into the stories and that's how I want it.

To each his or her own. I feel very fortunate to live in a time when I can see movies the way I want to see them. Being able to watch my favourite movies such as: Dune; The Fifth Element; Watchmen; Blade Runner; The Matrix; etc. in 3D is a real treat.

Deja Vu,

I just watched the latest Riddick using the Teranex simulated 2D to 3D. It really added to the movie enjoyment. I still can't get over how good this thing is. Have you decided to definitely get one? I promise you, you can't go wrong. I do hope you talked to Cineramax.

It should be arriving in the next couple of days. I'm trying to keep my expectations in check. I'm still surprised how good the 2D to 3D conversion on the Mits is. The 2D to 3D conversion of PowerDVD 13 and 14 and the Epson's 5020 are not in the same league. If the Teranex's conversion is better than the Mit's conversion (and it should be), I'll be happy.

This has got to be viral marketing

A movie with good 3D does not necessarily equal a good 3D movie!

cakefoo,

If your referring to Deja Vu and myself for talking about 3D, let's make no mistakes here. I am only an end user who happens to own a product that does an outstanding job of simulating 3D of my 2D movies. I really enjoy 3D and am happy to be able to view some of my 2D movies as such. Deja Vu talked to me about the same product as he also enjoys 3D and was looking to improve on that ability.

There's nothing to read into this. Period! This is a Forum for talking about things all Video/Audio. There is no marketing agenda here. Ok?

Here's the thread over on the $20,000 plus section that encouraged my interest in this 2D to 3D conversion technology.

3D is not dead, at least for me! I now have the Teranax set up and running and I am watching a lot of 2D material in simulated 3D and it really is amazing. I have now seen 10 different 3D converters in action counting the Teranex and it's in a league of its own, and it should be considering the cost of admission.

Hopefully this technology will trickle down quickly and more 3D enthusiasts will be able to add it to their home theatres.

Am I right that the Teranex does not support HDCP? Was it difficult to get around that?

Not difficult at all. HDCP strippers available all over the place.

One could say that digital is dead! After all, Samsung has announced that it is shutting down its digital movie and TV service. They are making a full exit from the digital media biz. On the music side, according to Nielsen SoundScan, sales of digital individual tracks fell 5.7% (from 1.34 billion to 1.26 billion), and digital album sales fell a less worry-inducing 0.1%. So what rose? Vinyl discs! Between 2012 and 2013, vinyl sales rose a whopping 32%, with another rise expected for 2014. In fact, the new Jack White album sold 40,000 vinyl copies...IN JUST THE FIRST WEEK! That's only a thousand copies less that the CDs sold! According to Billboard, the sales count for vinyl was so high, if it were released as it’s own album, it would have charted at number four! (Reminds me of how the 3D editions of GRAVITY and THOR 2 were out-selling the 2D Blus during their initial weeks in release.) Of course, the music biz has not been promoting vinyl, just as the video biz is not promoting 3D...yet both show growth. Can you imagine how well these formats would be doing if the industries had ANY inkling of marketing/promotion???

Of course, none of this means digital is really dead or dying. But if Vizio decides to go to a manufacturer that is unable to make 3D panels or Sony drops a 3D app, that seems to translate as "3D is dead". Looks to me like 3D, vinyl, Blu-Ray (and yes, even second-rate digital downloads) will be around for a long time to come.
cajieboy and old corps like this.
