Free software for 3D live streaming using two web cameras

Cebit 2010: Live 3D is not cheap


The number of 3D live video encoding solutions displayed here at Cebit is not quite what we’d call sky high, but the software is locked and loaded for use. The main problem persists – the lack of cheap 3D video capable displays for showing 3D content. Recording 3D video in high quality can be done using two full HD cameras, but if you are curious to see this technology in action, you can use two cheaper web cams, for example two Logitech or two Philips cameras as you can see from the following two pictures.

The next thing you will need after connecting two web cams via a USB cable to the PC is software for 3D live video encoding.

One solution for encoding a live 3D stream that we've come across comes from Nano Cosmos. NanoStream 3D live video encoder is a video software for 3D stereoscopic encoding from multiple camera views. The encoder is based on a modular architecture with direct show filters and codecs. It is available as development kit for integrating video encoding and streaming functionality into custom applications. It’s well worth noting that high performance video coding solutions for real time streaming and broadcast software can be installed on any PC.

The reason behind us telling you all this is that NanoStream encoder is available for download in a 20 days trial version with full functionality but only for the duration of Cebit, otherwise you’ll have to pay 500 euro for it. Feel free to try it out.
