Technicolor Bows 3D Blu-ray Interactive Tools2 Nov, 2010 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Technicolor Nov. 2 said it has developed Java-based interactive tools and related services to develop 3D menus for 3D Blu-ray Disc movies and the first 3D stereoscopic video game.
One of the world’s largest manufacturers of physical media, Technicolor showcased the new 3D Blu-ray functionalities at the Blu-Con 2010 conference in Los Angeles.
The Blu-ray 3D Java interactive technology was developed in-house by Technicolor’s research and innovation team and the disc was produced by the company’s production team in Burbank, Calif.
An early innovator in 3D Blu-ray, Technicolor was first-to-market with a high-quality MVC compression tool, 3D authoring and programming with BD Live and an advanced depth analysis tool for 3D subtitles and graphics. Its design services also provide on-screen 3D graphics for broadcast and Blu-ray Disc titles.
“We remain diligent in inventing new technologies that will continue to support our studio client by making the Blu-ray 3D experience even more immersive and compelling for consumers at home,” said Chuck Parker, president of Technicolor’s digital content delivery division.
