Next3D has announced a patent-pending technology for encoding and decoding of stereoscopic 3D video content. The company’s Compound-Entropy Stereoscopic Encoder (CESE) greatly reduces the redundant information in the left and right-eye views of stereoscopic video. This process results in high-quality stereoscopic video that requires far less bandwidth to transmit than two independent eye-views.
Next3D’s universal decoder/player provides stereoscopic video when used on PCs, game consoles and dedicated video processors found in consumer electronics and TV set top boxes. The encoder/player works with Next3D’s CESE format as well as the emerging Multi-View Coding standard (MVC), a version of MVC, which is enhanced by Compound-Entropy technology (MVC+CE), and a side-by-side format, which is enhanced by Compound-Entropy technology (SS+CE).
Next3D technology will be demonstrated on the NVIDIA 3D Vision System at the 2010 Consumer Electronic Show, January 7-10.
