Philadelphia-based Stream TV Networks has just won the Advanced Imaging Society’s highest award, the Lumiere, for its work on glasses-free 3D technology, and their ‘Ultra-D’ solution.
The award comes as mass production of Ultra-D displays hits high gear with Taiwanese manufacturing partner Pegatron. The 65″ premiere product is currently being placed in high profile public installations and positioned for consumer and digital signage sale through various online and brick-and-mortar retailers in 2016.
“Recognition from the Advanced Imaging Society is a great validation of what our team has worked hard to achieve,” said Stream TV CEO Mathu Rajan. “When your peers acknowledge you as best in class, it means a lot.”
Built on 4K panel technology, Ultra-D features an impressive 140-degree glasses-free 3D image without “dead” or “sweet” spots and offers real-time conversion from any 2D or 3D source using patented hardware, middleware and sophisticated-software algorithms. With adjustable depth that can be customized to their liking, viewers are transported into an unrivalled real-world 3D experience.
“Each year we honour breakthrough products which excite consumers and filmmakers alike,” said Jim Chabin, President of the Advanced Imaging Society. “Stream TV’s Ultra-D brings high quality 3D TV and movies to life, glasses-free, and that excited our judges.”
