Dimenco enables 3D, 2D content for glasses-free 3D displays

Dutch technology company Dimenco, a leader in the field of auto-stereoscopic displays, has announced its new Rendering Core Premium technology for glasses-free 3D displays at CES 2012.

Until now, auto-stereoscopic displays depended on specially-prepared content mainly targeted to professional industries, such as advertising, visualization, and interactive applications, says the company. The reason for this is all glasses-free 3D displays are dependent on multiple views, ranging from 5 to 28 view points, instead of a single (2D) or stereo (3D with glasses) view.

Last year, Dimenco introduced its Dimenco Rendering Core system, which works with the company's interface format (2D+Z) giving both content creators and end-users full real-time control of the viewing characteristics (amount of depth, viewing distance, offset) as well as simplicity in content creation.

This year, Dimenco introduces the Dimenco Rendering Core Premium, which now enables the conversion of single (2D) and stereo (3D with glasses) content to play on auto-stereoscopic (glasses-free 3D) displays that have this built-in Core.

"Consumers would never accept that they cannot experience their existing 3D content on a glasses-free 3D display,"? says Pieter de Jong, co-founder and project manager on real-time conversion at Dimenco. "We have seen that, to succeed, technology must be simple, understandable and have stunning quality; our real-time conversion is the logical and best solution for this."?

The Dimenco Rendering Core will be integrated within all Philips Commercial Signage 42"? and 55"? glasses-free 3D displays and can be enabled via a special software tool for $299.
