BURBANK, Calif., June 8 /PRNewswire/ -- Doremi Labs Inc., a leading broadcast and digital cinema hardware manufacturer today announced the implementation of Frame Packing 3D support on the Dimension-3D.  Frame Packing is defined in HDMI 1.4 as the standard format for Blu-ray 3D playback and all new consumer 3D TVs now hitting the market will have Frame Packing support.

The Dimension-3D was introduced in late 2009 and instantly became one of Doremi's most popular broadcast hardware devices.  An ideal device for use in postproduction, live events, and theme parks, the Dimension-3D is a compact, versatile format converter that converts any 3D format to another as well as changing of the frame rates. 

Frame Packing does not apply any scaling to the left and right eye images like Side/Side and Top/Bottom, so the 3D quality is comparable to Dual Stream HD-SDI.   Adding this support further broadens the Dimension-3D's versatility in the stereoscopic workflow as the demand for 3D content becomes more and more prevalent.  Recently, the Dimension-3D was included in the workflow for the live 3D broadcasts of India Premier League Cricket and will also play a part in the upcoming 2010 World Cup Soccer live 3D broadcasts from South Africa.

Implementing frame packing as defined by the HDMI specifications into the Dimension-3D facilitates interoperability among 3D devices.
