Leading Technology in Next Generation of Multimedia Industry

Now everybody predicts that the last ultimate target of multimedia Industry will be stereoscopic multimedia. Major stream of this industry will move from high-resolution color screen to stereoscopic screen as it did from black and white to color. General people eager to enjoy stereoscopic contents. (Generally, the demand of stereoscopic movies is much higher than that of stereoscopic games.) Basically, human beings see images with eyes that are approximately 65mm apart from one another. As a result, every person sees slightly different 2D images from the left and right eyes. This "binocular disparity" is one of the key components of stereoscopic effect. The brain interprets these two images as one 3D image unconsciously, and this is called 'Stereoscopic Image'.

 

Evolution of 3D display devices

For the growth of Stereoscopic multimedia industry, we need both of plenty of good stereoscopic 3D contents and eye-strain-free stereoscopic 3D display devices.
Generally, major activities in stereoscopic industry has been focused on developing display device so far, like special camera, special monitor, special glasses and etc. For home users and gamers, typical device is cheap glasses like anaglyph glasses or LCD shutter glasses. Nowadays, there¡¯re so many auto-stereoscopic (3D view with naked eye in stead of special glasses) display devices are commercially available, like 3D monitor, 3D cell-phone, 3D notebook and etc. More and more electronic companies will release commercial 3D-LCD equipped devices and 3D multimedia will be common in entertainment and education market very soon.

Contents is the limitation of Stereoscopic 3D industry

However, it is well known that the most difficult problem of this industry is the lack of stereoscopic contents. Just a few film production companies like IMAX, Disney and professional graphic companies are producing stereoscopic movies. And people can enjoy those movies of which titles they even don¡¯t know, only at special theater in amusement park. This unbalanced situation is due to huge amount of stereoscopic contents manufacturing cost which requires 10 to 20 times more money and time than normal film production.
Now everybody predicts that the last ultimate target of multimedia industry will be Stereoscopic multimedia. The trend of General people are eager to enjoy stereoscopic contents. (Generally, demand of stereoscopic movies is much higher than that of stereoscopic games.) But, 3D market has not grown much due to the lack of contents in fact as referred above.


Opening the true Stereoscopic 3D market with technology from VALLOY

Actually, 3D market has not grown so much due to the lack of stereoscopic contents. Single stereoscopic movie requires huge production cost and time.
VALLOY and its partners have developed automatic real-time stereoscopic 3D conversion technology, which can be applied to normal DVDs and still images. With this technology, people can select their preferred movies and watch it in stereo3D at home without any more investment. There¡¯re unlimited stereoscopic contents now. This technology will be applied to internet streaming service, digital broadcasting, mobile multimedia service, and home/small theaters.
