On display at 2014 International CES was Stream TV’s Ultra-D™ 4K glasses-free 3D technology. We understand that after seeing a demo, the distribution team for the theatrical debut of the new 3D film, The Legend of Hercules asked Stream TV to help them showcase an Ultra-D glasses-free 3D version of the movie trailer at the American Film Market.
The Natural History Museum in London also has Ultra-D screens on display as part of an exhibit celebrating the January 1 BSkyB broadcast debut of David Attenborough’s Natural History Museum Alive 3D. BSkyB chose Stream TV’s Ultra-D 2160p displays for the first public showcase of the trailer in glasses-free 3D. Produced by a BAFTA and Emmy award-winning team, the film was shot by the same 3D team behind the recent blockbuster Gravity, with fantastic visual effects produced by a team whose combined credits include work on the successful Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings franchises.
“We are excited to promote Sir David Attenborough’s new project and are thrilled that Sky selected Ultra-D. It’s a great validation of what we have worked to achieve,” – Mathu Rajan, CEO, Stream TV Networks
“Museum visitors are experiencing brilliant 3D footage created by Atlantic Productions without having to wear glasses, immersing them into the natural world of the past in a way that has not been possible until the advent of our Ultra-D glasses-free 3D screens,” continued Rajan.
It’s been predicted that 500,000 Ultra HDTVs will be shipped next year and 2.5 million in 2016. Stream TV Networks has successfully ported their 3D Glasses Free Ultra-D 4K 2160p real time conversion technology to the new Qualcomm 8074 processor. The 8074 chip with the Ultra-D algorithms convert all input content – 2D or 3D Stereo content – to Ultra-D 2160p (4K glasses free 3D content). This is way too exciting!
The Ultra-D™ technology allows users to connect their satellite or cable service, VOD, Blu-ray player, XBOX or Playstation directly into the TV using Ultra-D™ 4K 2160p technology.
Using complex algorithms the Ultra-D™ technology converts the content of 1080p 2 million pixels into 4K 8 million pixels without scaling using disparity between images. Content from Netflix, Hulu, YouTube, Baidu TV, PPStv, iQYi tv, Totou TV and other video sites get converted directly into glasses free 3D. Photographs can now be seen in 3D.
Qualcomm’s latest 8074 processor features the New Krait 400 CPU in quad configuration, with speeds of up to 2.3 GHz per core offers best-in-class performance per watt, so processor performance can hold up to the more demanding processing. The new Adreno 330 GPU delivers more than 2x performance for compute applications over the current Adreno 320 GPU, capture playback and display in 2160p video.
Beijing BOE Vision Electron Technology plans to produce the Ultra-D™ 4K 2160p line of TVs with its 55-inch panels. The TVs are accompanied with the external conversion box, or seeCube™ that will allow for all kinds of content to be converted to 2160p in glasses free 3D.
Ultra-D glasses-free 3D screens were also on display at International CES at Stream TV’s brand partners Haier and Konka.
