3-D TV and gaming has been touted as the next big thing for years in consumer electronics. But the technology hasn’t ever truly caught on. One factor that’s slowed the adoption of in-home 3-D is the fact that users have to wear special glasses to experience the 3-D effect. StreamTV Networks hopes that its new Ultra-D product will become the standard in home-based 3-D viewing.
Nick caught up with Zach, Games Director for StreamTV Networks. The pair talked about the company’s Ultra-D offering. StreamTV Networks has partnered with Epic Games, developers of the Unreal gaming engine, as well as other software developers. Zach explained that Ultra-D is a glasses-free 3-D system that uses a blended lenticular design that works with a 140-degree viewing angle so it looks great from all sides. (When a viewer moves out of the range of 3-D, the picture changes to a standard 2-D display.) Ultra-D is currently only available to developers but it’s likely to make its way to consumer products soon.
