TDVision Systems Inc. and CyberLink announced that they will showcase their full HD 3D solutions at the 2010 Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas.
According to the statement, CyberLink’s PowerDVD video player software, integrated with TDVision’s 2D+Delta decoding technology, delivers full HD 3D video decoding capabilities.
The 2D+Delta Format, invented and patented by TDVision Systems, makes use of redundancies between the left and right stereoscopic views. This is accomplished by encoding a full resolution 2D view and only the Delta Difference information between the left and the right views. This difference is stored into the video stream in a format that updated decoders and 3D displays can play out in any 3D format at the highest quality possible while legacy 2D televisions and decoders play the stream in 2D, making the system fully backward compatible and display agnostic.
The 2D+Delta format is also known as TDVCodec and is a key part of the “Multiview Video Coding” (MVC) codec (ISO-MPEG-14496-10:2008, Amendment 1), an extension to the ITU-T H.264 Advanced Video Coding (AVC) recently adopted by the Blu-ray Disc Association as the “Blu-ray 3D” specification.
TDVision is also partnering with NVIDIA to provide a premium 3D experience in households around the world.
“2010 is the year of 3D, and NVIDIA is leading the industry to enable a high quality, PC 3D platform for the home that lets users enjoy a variety of 3D content,” said Phil Eisler, general manager of 3D Vision at NVIDIA. “Our NVIDIA 3D Vision active shutter glasses offer full resolution, 1080p 3D, and coupled with the CyberLink PowerDVD and TDVision’s TDVCodec, achieves a premium viewing experience with Blu-ray, IPTV, and user generated content.”
