“Creator of new technology says they don’t have to wait till 2010?”
Is Sky Going 3D Next Week?
Lowry told Pocket-lint in a one to one interview, “Our technology lets you use a standard Blu-ray/DVD player and a standard television screen. All you have to do is wear a pair of glasses.”
Over the last 2 years, Lowry has devised a system that is based on the anaglyph method, however, with green and magenta filters rather than the more traditional blue and red, vastly improving 3D viewing in the home and the cinema.
“The system works by merging two images together through a series of algorithms. It creates one image that can be encoded on a standard Blu-ray or DVD disc or a broadcast signal. Wearing the glasses lets your brain decode the image,” Lowry said.
The new technology can be seen in action on a short 15-minute feature on the “Aliens versus Monsters” DVD due out in the US on 29 September or on “Coraline” in the UK from the 11 October.
