3D will be huge at the CES 2010. HDlogix of Edison, NJ, for instance will debut their new ImageIQ 3D technology, which, for the first time, will enable real-time conversion of any HDTV signal to 3D on any 3D-ready display.
HDlogix just realized the first ever 3D Stadium Experience during a sporting event at the Cowboys Stadium in Dallas. 80,000 football fans were handed 3D glasses when they entered the stadium.
Beginning with the second half kickoff of the Dallas Cowboys-San Diego Chargers football game, the enormous center-hung display (measures 160 feet in length and 72 feet in height) in the stadium was converted from high definition 2D, enabling fans to view both live action and instant replays in 3D. Update: Apparently this 3D event was not a great hit with the audience. See this report on Engadget.
"The HDlogix 3D technology experienced by the Dallas Cowboys fans today at Cowboys Stadium will soon be enjoyed by television viewers around the world," said Jim Spinella, President and CEO of HDlogix. "Our new ImageIQ 3D™ technology will make it possible for anyone to enjoy 3D video of sporting events, feature movies and television shows whether they were produced in 3D or not. We believe it is the next significant evolution in television viewing."
HDlogix focuses on building imaging and video-based products and services. Its three primary product lines are: ImageIQ, an extensive suite of image and video optimization and enhancement technologies; Clique, a set of mobile and desktop video communications client software applications; and Hue, a popular range of colorful high definition web cameras. The company has spent over a decade in advanced video research and holds an extensive portfolio of intellectual property which provides unique product differentiation and underpins continuous innovation.
