The Glasses Free 3D Technology is Here


MOUNTAIN VIEW, Calif., Oct. 17, 2018/PRNewswire/ -- For nearly 100 years, 3D movies have always needed 3D glasses to be worn along with specific seating placement. TronXYZ has now developed the technology to make 3D entertainment glasses-free.

 

The basic idea behind how the technology works is simple: instead of a purely flat screen, TronXYZ uses a special optical device laminated on the top of the regular screen to control the light directions from the pixels on the screen so that both eyes can see different pixels. Essentially one eye sees a different picture than the other eye; this is how we currently view the real world.

 

The benefits to this new technology compared to the old style allow for a much more robust viewing experience. With the current design, structure, and materials, there is no loss of brightness. Historically there are other glasses-free 3D solutions, however, the user will experience a 70% brightness loss. The second issue with the old glasses-free 3D technology is that the viewer must remain in the 3D "sweet-spot." TronXYZ's technology makes it possible for the viewer to be in a large spectrum of viewing positions, distances, and angles without any drop in quality. Finally, the technology is not limited to keeping a device in only landscape mode, but also watching glasses-free 3D content in portrait mode.

 

Sub-Pixel Rendering and Eye Tracking Technology

Besides the device's specially designed display screen for large viewing angles, TronXYZ has also developed innovative sub-pixel rendering technology, which means every pixel can be rendered according to the operator's viewing angle, distance, and position. When 3D content is detected, the eye tracking engine inside the device tracks where a person is viewing the screen and passes that information to the sub-pixel rendering engine to make sure every pixel displayed is optimal.

With TronXYZ's 3D technology, you no longer have to hold your phone at a certain angle to be comfortable. Eye tracking technology allows you to be flexible on what angle or position you want to view your 3D content in.

 

Future of 3D

TronXYZ's current 3D viewing technology is already years ahead of what was thought possible; the future only seems to hold the brightest and the highest definition viewing experiences. 3D technology will be useful in the medical field, keep industrial applications safe, be popular in the education industry, and create the next blockbuster hits.

3D Photos Now Rolling out on Facebook and in VR

3D Photos Now Rolling out on Facebook and in VR

4.jpg

Today we’re starting to roll out 3D photos, a new way to share your memories and moments in time with a fun, lifelike dimension in both News Feed and VR. With technology that captures the distance between the subject in the foreground and the background, 3D photos bring scenes to life with depth and movement. 

Whether it’s a shot of your pet, your friends, or a beautiful spot from your latest vacation, you just take a photo in Portrait mode using your compatible dual-lens smartphone, then share as a 3D photo on Facebook where you can scroll, pan and tilt to see the photo in realistic 3D—like you’re looking through a window. You can also view 3D photos in VR using the Oculus Browser on Oculus Go or Firefox on Oculus Rift. Everyone will be able to see 3D photos in News Feed and VR today, while the ability to create and share 3D photos begins to roll out today and will be available to everyone in the coming weeks.


Facebook video 1

3D photos can help you feel even closer to the people, places and things you share on Facebook and relive your memories in a way that feels more real. Here’s how to do it:


Plus, here are some tips and tricks for becoming a 3D photo pro and selecting the scenes that will pop in 3D:

Facebook Video 2

1. Create layers.
3D Photos use the depth maps that are stored with “Portrait” photos taken on iPhone 7+, 8+, X or XS. You’ll get the best results if your main subject is three or four feet away, and to really make it pop, try to capture scenes with multiple layers of depth, including something in the foreground and something in the background—like a shot of your family standing in a field of flowers.

2. Keep contrast in mind.
You’ll get more of the 3D effect when your photo’s subject has contrasting colors—for example, someone wearing a blue shirt standing in front of a blue wall won’t pop as much as someone wearing a different color.

3. Use texture.
Some materials and subjects make better 3D photos than others. You’ll get the best results from subjects that have some texture to them, have solid edges, and aren’t too shiny. Try to avoid transparent objects like clear plastic or glass, as they aren’t always accurately captured by depth sensors.

We’re listening to feedback on this new format as we continue rolling it out to everyone. We hope it will help you share your moments in a new way — and we can’t wait to see what you’ll create!

“ Cinemark has renewed its 3D agreement with RealD across its global platform through December 2022.

The national theater chain also plans to install RealD 3D systems in new cinemas during the term of the extension, Cinemark CEO Mark Zoradi and RealD COO Travis Reid announced on Tuesday.

“Cinemark is thrilled to extend our strategic partnership with RealD,” Zoradi said in a statement. “We continue to believe the visual effects of 3D can enhance the on-screen action and further immerse movie-goers into the developing storyline of the film. RealD’s technology is first-rate and we value the collaboration with them over the years to ensure Cinemark is among the best and the brightest 3D technology in the industry.”

Reid added, “Cinemark was an early advocate of RealD; their loyalty and commitment has never wavered as they recognized the excitement and added value 3D brings to their theatres. Their long-standing relationship with us is predicated on the highest level of customer satisfaction and demand in their RealD equipped locations. We are extremely pleased to continue collaborating with the Cinemark team as they consistently seek dynamic ways to move the business forward and enhance the overall movie-going experience.”

Box office revenues for 3D films dropped to a record low in 2017, falling 18% to $1.3 billion. That decline was tied to a larger drop in the domestic box office. Overall, North American revenues fell roughly 2% in 2017 to $11.1 billion.” - Variety

World’s First! Introducing the Ultimate 3-Dimensional Experience, ‘3D Cinema LED’

World’s First! Introducing the Ultimate 3-Dimensional Experience, ‘3D Cinema LED’


A 3D version of the Cinema LED Screen has been unveiled to the world. Samsung Electronics formally debuted its latest product at ISE (Integrated Systems Europe) 2018, the largest commercial display exhibition in Europe, which began on February 6 in Amsterdam, Netherlands. This is the second time that Samsung showcased a ‘first of its kind’ screen after its first-everCinema LEDthat made its first appearance last March.

Samsung Cinema LED Screen has been acclaimed for overcoming the limitations of existing film projectors in theaters. Viewers have praised the screen for making them feel as if they are watching a 3D film, with its crystal-clear 4K (4,096 x 2,160) resolution picture quality, infinite ‘true black’ HDR, and non-distorted visual imagery.

In less than a year, Samsung turned the viewers’ ‘feeling’ of watching a 3D film into a reality. The true 3D technology was incorporated into the Cinema LED Screen, which gives the ultimate 3- dimensional experience by utilizing the brightness and quality of Cinema LED as it is. Samsung Newsroom met with Dongsoo Koo, from Samsung Visual Display Division’s Enterprise Product Planning Group, who participated in the whole process of bringing the 3D Cinema LED into the world.

Long History of 3D Films that Began from the ‘Binocular Disparity’

“It is the movie ‘Avatar,’ the box office hit of 2009, that usually comes into people’s minds when thinking of 3D movies. However, 3D technology already existed in the 1890s. In fact, it was in 1832 when the physicist Charles Wheatstone first discovered the principle of 3D, which makes it a more than 180-year-old technology. During the 1950s, about 40 3D films were produced in Hollywood.”

The principle of a 3D video is quite simple. There’s a gap between our two eyes, the 65mm disparity between the right and left eye. This ‘binocular disparity’ adds three-dimensional sense to the visual information that our eyes receive. The mechanism of a 3D video is essentially the same. 3D cameras are mounted with two different lenses. For the visual information taken with the two lenses of a 3D camera to be delivered to our two eyes, there should be two screens, too. But since only one screen can be installed, we need a technology to realize 3D video on that screen. Halving the scanline1 to deliver the video to our two eyes respectively can be one way or making the two videos intersect with each other at an extremely high speed can be another.

 To get a three-dimensional sense, you need separate visuals for each of the left and right eyes and realize the two scenes on a single screen.

Catching Both Birds: Brightness and Resolution

Likewise, there are various ways of realizing 3D on a screen. However, the number one priority in 3D Cinema LED development was that no matter which method is adopted, the best level resolution of Cinema LED Screen should be maintained. This was what kept Samsung up at night.

“The existing 3D cinemas had to compromise between brightness and resolution. The screen is dark as if the viewers are wearing sunglasses in the theater. The brightness is already halved, and with the 3D glasses that audience must wear, it becomes a one-third level compared to other 2D films. The resolution is halved too. It is inevitable as the videos for the left and right eye are overlapped and reflected.”

The evident limitation for existing 3D theater clearly revealed the path for 3D Cinema LED. “The brighter the visual information is, the more our eyes receive the three-dimensional impression. Therefore, we had to develop a new product that delivers the same brightness of Cinema LED, which is 48 nits, even while wearing the 3D glasses. We also could not sacrifice the resolution. It’s clear that lower resolution equals a lower sense of reality.”

It was not an easy goal. But Samsung’s know-how on 3D TV and the knowledge of Cinema LED created the synergy for the company to overcome the limitation on brightness and resolution of the existing 3D movie theaters’. 3D Cinema LED’s full and precise color refuses comparison any premium movie theaters.

Less Dizziness in 3D Film Experience

3D technology makes movies to be more immersive, but it can also cause inconveniences such as dizziness and headaches. The 3D Cinema LED screen has significantly improved dizziness that specifically involves 3D.

There are two reasons for the dizziness. The dizziness from the content itself occurs due to the mismatch between the reality and what our brain recognizes. That is, our body is sitting still but our brain thinks the body is moving. In addition, when we stare at a certain screen for more than two hours in a dark room, it is natural to develop a headache.

However, Koo proudly told that 3D Cinema LED has no degrading of brightness and improves the display-related dizziness by eliminating many of the triggering factors except those coming from the content itself. Therefore, the viewers experience less dizziness. “The left video should be seen only by the left eye and the right video only by the right eye. But there are moments when our eyes receive overlapped imagery. This is called ‘crosstalk,’ and the repetition of crosswalk causes the dizziness and headache. Fortunately, our developers came up with an algorithm for 3D Cinema LED to completely get rid of any crosstalk from happening, therefore dealing with the dizziness and headache issues.”

 Mr. Koo (right) from Enterprise Product Planning Group and Sandy Kim (left) of Enterprise Marketing Group are introducing the advantages of 3D Cinema LED, which can be enjoyed with the highest picture quality without dizziness.

Less Distortion, No Matter Where You Sit in the Theater

The 3D Cinema LED has the same viewing angle as the Cinema LED. The 3D Cinema LED provides the opportunity to enjoy the film with less distortion no matter where the viewer is seated, just like the Cinema LED did. “When watching in the conventional 3D theater, the image becomes darker or distorted as people go to the edge of the theater, but 3D Cinema LED has significantly improved the problem.”

For theaters to be a space that continuously delivers new experiences, the 3D Cinema LED is expected to play a bigger role. “People say ‘Seeing is Believing.’ One might not believe until seeing something, but once seeing it, there’s no denial. I think this applies to 3D Cinema LED, too. Before experiencing it, some might doubt whether there is an actual difference. But once they experience the new technology of ours, people will believe and understand that it is totally different. This year’s ISE will be the first moment of that unique experience,” said Koo, adding that soon people will be able to enjoy the ultimate 3-dimensional experience through 3D Cinema LED Screen.

 While nothing can compare to actually being there, this video captured the 3D cinema LED screen over 3D glasses. The film is a trailer for “Valerian and the City of a Thousand Planets”.
