ITHACA, N.Y., Sept. 12, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- (http://www.3dfusion.com) Out of the Lab and into the Marketplace. Ithaca N.Y., home to Cornell University and scores of major technological breakthroughs, including the Wharton's 1st Silent Films, has now given birth to another major entertainment / scientific advancement.
3DFusion's first to market, stereoscopic Broadcast Quality, Glasses-Free 3D television platform has been installed at The Shops at Ithaca Mall as a fully operational 3D Advertising Promotional Kiosk, displaying 3DFusion's proprietary 3DFMax™ stereoscopic content. This 3D digital signage-advertising platform is the first of its kind in the U.S.
This world-class, NO Glasses, "Picture Perfect", 3D Digital Signage application in a Retail environment, is stopping shoppers in their tracks as it displays breathtaking 3DFMax™ 3D content. Onlookers are stunned by the sudden realization that they are seeing 3D as they come within eyeshot of the four LCD 3D panels on the Kiosk.
Reactions ranged from;
"WOW, When can I get one? "I want one in my home,"
"This is crazy, I can't believe that I am seeing 3D," to
"It doesn't make me dizzy, no headache", ... "I can stand anywhere." " I thought everybody said this was 10 years away?", "Mindblowing".
3DFusion President and Ithaca resident Steve Blumenthal installed the unit locally in Ithaca, as it is an ideal central N.Y. community from which to evaluate a Digital Signage BETA Pilot. The 3DFusion 3D AD Kiosk Pilot will consists of 20 3D Auto Stereoscopic Displays (ASD) mounted on 5 POS Kiosk units, located at various Central N.Y. Malls and commercial centers. 3DFusion plans to expand the 3D AD Network nationally to 1000's of ASD units in all 25 major demographic regions, reaching 100's of millions of repeat viewers annually.
Blumenthal added, "We are now ready to enter the marketplace with sales of both 3D-glasses-free screens and software tools that are competitively priced, user friendly, and operational as a 'Turnkey' commercial package." Pricing is available upon request. Please contact email@example.com.
Quoted 3DFusion C.E.O. Ilya Sorokin, "By being the only 3DTV platform to be Math based, creating a 'fusion' of PC driven algorithms and classical 3D pairs, we are in the unique position of now bringing to market the only credible Broadcast Standard ASD 3DTV solution, and the response from the 3D industry professionals has been phenomenally positive."
Rodolfo La Maestra, Senior Technical Director for HDTV Magazine, wrote earlier this year:
"So which was the best looking glasses-free large screen 3DTV? Who was the 3D-glasses-free queen of CES? Not Sony's 56" 4K, or 46" 2K LCD panel prototypes shown with floor platforms that wisely limited the viewing area/angles. Not the 65" and 56" LCD models from Toshiba shown with fixed feet marks on the floor (so you better not move).... Not even LG. The best looking large screen 3D image without using 3D glasses to my eyes was the one demoed by 3DFusion..." (www.HDTVMagazine.com)
And Matt Brennesholtz, Technical Editor and Analyst for Insight Media and Display Daily, penned the following:
"The 3D Fusion display is the one I was thinking of when I said autostereoscopic displays were good enough for digital signage. Their display not only had acceptable resolution and few AS3D artifacts as you moved around but it had excellent color, brightness and contrast.
(At the Best Buy Times Square Theater Bon Jovi concert, 3DFusion had 4 3DFMax ASD units on display)...."I saw the Bon Jovi video images and they looked good. Very good, in fact....
"I would say if 3D Fusion AS3D is good enough for Bon Jovi fans, it is good enough for football fans (in Sports Bars) and advertisers." (www.insightmedia.info)
The shoppers at the Ithaca Mall heartily agree, Steve Blumenthal after talking with Mall Shoppers observed, "In 3D the Advertising is Entertainment. We tend to underestimate how much pleasure people get from watching comfortable 3D. The enjoyment, the 'fun' of glasses-free 3DTV is it is effortlessly entertaining, especially when it doesn't strain your eyes to look at it. Recently a former Marketing 'Giant' from a major PC company, told us that we should call it 'TRUE-3D', because it looks like the real world, it's that good."
