Full HD Glasses-Free 3D Available Soon Says Dolby
Roland Vlaicu, Dolby, is telling the industry that full HD glasses free 3D does not need to wait, as the company pushes its platform agnostic, backwards compatible Dolby 3D solution
3DFocus.co.uk interviewed Roland Vlaicu, Senior Director of Broadcast Imaging, Dolby, about Dolby 3D. The company, who are most famous for their audio solutions, recently received a glowing endorsement from James Cameron who said “There is room for improvement but this already good enough for the consumer market, you guys are the first to blow out the door” when viewing a Dolby 3D demo on a prototype Philips lenticular display at IBC this year.
There has been a focus of the potential of Dolby 3D for glasses free 3D solutions but it is a group of algorithms that would work with glasses based systems too. The company is currently talking to chip manufacturers, broadcasters and TV hardware companies to embed Dolby 3D codecs for the delivery of full HD 3D to any 3D display.
In this interview, we aim to discover how Dolby 3D can deliver a high enough quality experience and what evidence supports the notion that 3D will take off if the glasses could be chucked out of the equation.
