MasterImage 3D Cell-Matrix technology
MasterImage is a company that wants to make glasses free 3D tablets and phones a reality and it claims it got things better than the competition.
Back at CES had a chance to see a 4.3-inch demo and at the Mobile World congress 2012 that starts next week in Barcelona Spain, the company will showcase a 10.1-inch version powered by a Qualcomm Snapdragon S4.
The 4.3 inch version we’ve seen looked better than Nintendo 3DS or LG Optimus 3D we’ve seen before. It didn’t hurt our eyes and it was quite pleasant to look at. Qualcomm will demonstrate glasses free Mobile Development Platform (MDP) tablet with a WUXGA (1920x1200) resolution display. This sounds like a top notch tablet resolution and it is powered by Snapdragon S4 CPU. Premium content that will be showcased at both Qualcomm and MasterImage booths comes from 3net the Discovery/Sony/Imax 3D joint venture and 3D animated comics.
The MDP Tablet 3D Edition will feature MasterImage 3D’s Cell-Matrix Parallax Barrier technology and will run Android 4.0. The demonstration will feature Qualcomm’s 2D to 3D conversion technology, which enables real-time 2D to stereoscopic 3D conversion of videos and games.
Last week we spoke with Roy Taylor, GM and EVP MasterImage 3D Display and he confirmed that there should be some customers launching tablets and phones based on their latest 4.3 and 10.1-inch screens with 3D’s Cell-Matrix Parallax Barrier technology and there will be some tier one names coming with this stuff in early 2013.
Qualcomm sounds like a sweet deal for MasterImage as they convinced one of the biggest ARM manufacturers to work with their glass-free 3D technology. 3D done right might be the next big thing and having a phone or a tablet that can show both 2D and 3D at no extra cost, should like a good idea for not so far future.
