3DFusion Aims to Create Perfect 3D Without Glasses

New York-headquartered 3DFusion is working on a method of bringing hi-def three-dimensional imagery to screens without the aid of any glasses, which also allows the viewer to watch from a number of different angles, according to a report by NetworkWorld.com.

NetworkWorld.com reports that 3DFusion, a New York-based company, is currently developing technology so that high-definition stereoscopic images can be seen on screens without the need for passive or active glasses technology.

The company claims that their technology allows users to watch 3D content on 2D screens from different angles, without glasses, and without sacrificing image quality. Apparently, the underlying imaging technology includes firmware for televisions and software tools to remaster 2D or stereoscopic 3D signals.

The company also states that their technology can convert content for displays that require glasses but that is not their goal.

3DFusion has been developing this technology for four years. Ilya Sorokin, CEO, claims that in that time 3DFusion has been able to develop converted stereoscopic images that look deeper and crisp.

The technology is planned to come to market in a few months. 3DFusion plans to target business-specific areas such as digital signage, where the profit margins are high, according to Sorokin. After that, the plan is to bring the technology to the consumer market. However, the company is not ready to handle large volumes and thing margins that are necessary in the sales of consumer television sets. Therefore, the company plans to license their technology to manufacturers.

While companies like Toshiba and Samsung are also researching glasses-free 3D televisions, Toshiba sets require specific viewing angles to work and Samsung claims their sets are five years away from hitting the market. Also, in many cases, the resolution of the images has to be made quite low in order to achieve glases-free stereoscopic images.

3DFusion claims their technology fixes all these problems, with seemingly no drawbacks whatsoever. It's an incredibly bold claim to make and seems unlikely, but only the release of the product will prove this one way or the other. Keep your eyes peeled.
