Fractal Systems is presenting a new technology at Big Boys Toys which renders 3D experience with no need for the special glasses, thanks to the autostereoscopic 3D effect. Using lenticular technology, it gives excellent clarity and depth, making the 3D experience even more lifelike and enjoyable.
The 2D-plus-Depth format is compatible with existing compression tools, as the additional bandwidth of the depth is small. Software tools are provided with the 3D display to play-out
3D content and control the 3D and 2D visualization parameters. The actual 3D content can be created via plug-ins available for popular 3D animation software packages. Existing 2D or stereo content can be converted into 2D-plus-Depth format. Slanted multi-view lenticular lens technology affords full brightness and contrast, and allows multiple users to view 3D content at the same time. The display is based on a high resolution panel and thus enables great picture quality and true colour representation in 2D and 3D mode. The integrated rendering core offers content creators and end-users full control over the quality and depth-effect characteristics of the picture
