3D upgrades made cheap for consumers
Trioscopics suitable for existing broadcast TV

One indication that 3D has caught hold commercially is the emergence of alternative methods for delivering 3D to consumers without expensive hardware upgrades.

Following Technicolor’s formal unveiling yesterday of their method for showing 3D from standard 35mm release prints, today veteran technologist John Lowry demonstrated an improved anaglyph method for 3D.

Monickered Trioscopics, the system that can work on any existing digital theater or TV screen, is suitable for existing broadcast TV. It uses a green-magenta glasses, a different color combination from previous anaglyph systems, and delivers better color and clarity than most anaglyph systems.

Lowry demonstated the system with throwaway plastic glasses from American Paper Optics and HD clips from “Journey to the Center of the Earth,” “My Bloody Valentine” and “Coraline” that had been converted within a matter of days.

Noting that “anaglyph is a bad word” in the 3D community, Lowry said “We may not be perfect yet,” said Lowry, “but we can open markets and help studios make a lot of money today. We will be the cost-effective solution for broadening the 3D base.”
