Now we’ll have 3D View without Those Lame Glasses
True, new technology created has assured that human eyes would be able to enjoy 3D without the 3D glasses. And also the prototypes of these models have been made. So it would not be long before we consumers actually start getting this Auto Stereoscopic T.Vs in shops.
Though the issue here to been seen was all the 3D movies and videos are available in Blu-Ray discs. These discs have two forms of images, one for each human eye. But the current technology being incorporated for the ‘Without Glasses’ 3D set has about 5-10 images, working simultaneously in different angles, views and perspectives. Since we humans don’t sit in one position while watching a movie, researchers at Fraunhofer Institute for Telecommunications, Heinrich-Hertz Institute, HHI in Berlin recently developed a technology that converts a Blu-ray’s existing 3D content in a manner that enables them to be shown on auto stereoscopic displays.
“We take the existing two images and generate a depth map – that is to say, a map that assigns a specific distance from the camera to each object; from there we compute any of several intermediate views by applying depth image-based rendering techniques. And here’s the really neat thing: The process operates on a fully automated basis, and in real time.” Christian Riechert, research fellow at HHI said.
Though the previous systems were capable of adding the depths n Blu-Ray discs before, it really worked on a slower pace. Sometimes even human adaptations were required. Now just imagine, insert a 3D Blu-Ray disc, set the couch in any position you want, get comfortable and enjoy the movie WITHOUT THE GLASSES. The flickering that would or could have appeared has also been resolved. The software which was required to convert the 3D Blu-ray discs to Auto Stereoscopic images has also been made.
Now the Auto Stereoscopic technology will be imparted into a T.V set. This would nevertheless require one calendar year more. The technology will be unveiled from 31st August to 5th September at the IFA trade show in Berlin.
