Stereoscopic 3D Content at Home, Brought to You By TDVision’s TDVCodec
TDVision Systems, Inc., the leader in stereoscopic 3D acquisition, encoding, broadcast, and display technologies unveils TDVCodec, the worlds first 2D and MPEG compatible stereoscopic format that maintains 2D and MPEG compatibility with legacy systems at the 2008 National Association of Broadcasters show (NAB) in Las Vegas, NV.
Video streams encoded in TDVCodec format are viewable in all existing 2D set top boxes, DVD/Blu-ray players and presented on 2D televisions with no loss in color, resolution or frame rate. The same digital video stream can also be reproduced using TDVReady devices and PCs with TDVision’s Dejaview software and visualized in true 3D stereoscopic displays such as 3D Ready DLP televisions (Samsung & Mitsubishi) or by using the portable and immersive TDVisor from TDVision.
TDVision will also be showing a set of Blu-ray discs with content encoded using the TDVCodec format running in 2D on the PlayStation3 and 3D running on the PC connected to the stereoscopic displays. Demonstrated Blu-ray content includes a dimensionalized 3D Star Wars clip from In-Three, 3D reels from 21st Century 3D, and content from ParadiseFX and Intuitive Surgical.
“By encoding 3D content with our TDVCodec, one single file dramatically reduces the production, replication, and distribution costs, saving hundreds of millions of dollars to producers and broadcasters while maintaining full compatibility with existing 2D platforms. Every person in the world will be able see the content, and if you happen to have TDVReady equipment and a Samsung TV or a portable HD TDVisor then you’re ready to experience HD 3D anywhere,” said Manuel Gutierrez Novelo, President and CEO of TDVision Systems.
TDVision will also be showing a live 3D camera demo by the use of 21st Century 3D’s 3DP2 camera connected directly to TDVision’s TDVisor. This will demonstrate the complete implementation from acquisition, encoding, and decoding to visualization for the complete 3D echo system.
“TDVision’s TDVisor is indisputably the best in its class,” said Jason Goodman, CEO of 21st Century 3D. “We are using it for the viewfinder of our new advanced 3DP2 stereoscopic camera,” he continued.
This demonstration proves the feasibility of encoding 3D content powered by TDVision’s technology and keeping compatibility with the existing 2D platform, ready to support new stereoscopic display technologies, reducing the production costs, and increasing sales by offering the customer a completely new experience and watch 3D movies at home.
TDVision Systems will be presenting April 14-17 at the NAB show located at the Las Vegas Convention Center, Central Hall exhibit number 9042.

TDVision Systems, Inc. is the owner of several 3D-related patents for proprietary system architectures, which will propel breakthroughs in providing true 3D through new digital technologies. These technologies enable the acquisition, emulation and processing of a 3D image from a video stream or computer-generated image. This architecture also allows the use of current existing infrastructures, and with the addition of TDVision’s hardware, enables true 3D in High Definition.
