"3DFusion have reached a technological breakthrough allowing it to offer Perfect Picture 3D TV without glasses. The 3DFusion 3DFMax image optimization technology enables the first broadcast ready 3D picture quality, viewed without 3D glasses. For the first time glasses-less 3D TV is ready for AD network signage, entertainment and scientific applications in the commercial marketplace."

So will their display accept all HDMI 1.4a 3d mandatory resolutions as well as SD ATSC digital standard resolutions and be offrered at a price that is competitve and with PQ that is with today's 3D TVs?

"FOR INVESTORS

From the time of its inception, 3DFusion Corp. has been funded by its founders. At this point, the company has completed its initial phase and has developed the technology positioned for the explosive growth.


3DFusion is in the process of raising funds for the second phase of its development."

They are raising funds, so I take it this was a fund raising news story. Researchers make discoveries then people invest money so they can improve their technology more.


So to answer your question, they aren't going to license the technology to TV makers yet, if ever.

I don't know for sure though, but it looks like this story was just to raise funds for more research. Perhaps I'm wrong and they will license it out in the near future, then they will incorporate it into hdmi 1.4 TV's. But I'm almost certain this is just a proof of concept story that shows they have the technology and then they do more research.

This is all great news, but sounds like this will be a few years if ever before it can take off into the TV market. If cost is of any concern, this will be be costly just like Toshiba's initial estimate of $3000 for a 20in 3DTV.

There are signs that unmistakably answer your question by the negative :

When they don't mention the "home cinema" market, it means the picture quality very limited, I'd even say it is so crappy that you wouldn't want it in your home.

When the market applications are mostly advertising, professional, medical or scientific, then you know it's very overpriced.


And finally, these kinds of press releases show up every month, by a different company claiming to revolutionize 3DTV without glasses, that they are the firsts, that they hold the key patents, and so on.

They all just do the same thing, they take a big and shiny high resolution 2D TV (mostly 1080p) and then they stick a more or less complicated lenticular array on top of it.

There is no revolution there, all these displays have the exact same picture quality problem : they have to compromise between the number of 3D viewpoints available and the picture resolution per viewpoint.


You'll learn to ignore them.

Hopefully. But unlikely.
