3DFusion Glasses-Free 3D TV
New York, Nov 18, 2010 - After a number of public events involving presentations of 3DFusion display technology, Insight Media Analyst Matt Brenneshultz stated in the November 11, 2010 Display Daily publication, "The 3DFusion display is the one I was thinking of when I said Auto Stereoscopic Displays (ASD) were good enough for digital signage." 

On Oct. 27th, 2010, 3DFusion participated in the Kagan/Panasonic 3D Media Markets event at the Waldorf Astoria, organized by PK World Media. The event included such industry figures as Jeffrey Katzenberg and John Landau. The overall consensus was that 3D without glasses is 5 to 10 years away.

3DFusion president was on the roster as a member of the technology panel and surprised the audience by inviting them to visit the 3DFusion business suite, located upstairs in the Waldorf, to experience the picture perfect 3DFMax glasses free 3D ASD, and to see a real time, live 3D stereo camera capture display.The members of the audience who followed Steve's invitation knew that they had just seen "the future" of 3DTV, 5 to 10 years ahead of time. The
conclusion was plain and simple, 3DTV without glasses is here, NOW.

A short 2 weeks later, at its Public Debut, 3DFusion treated two different audiences to its commercially ready glasses free
3D technology. At an invitation of AEG and Island Def Jam Music Group, 3DFusion converted the Bon Jovi music video of "What Do You Got?"  into glasses free 3D format. 3DFusion treated the Best Buy Theater Times Square audience of
the Bon Jovi concert, to a presentation of the glasses free 3D video on four 3DFusion displays. The audience was stunned.

In the words of Insight Media Analyst Matt Brenneshultz, "I saw the Bon Jovi video images and they looked good. Very good, in fact... I would say if 3DFusion AS-3D is good enough for Bon Jovi fans, it is good enough for football fans and
advertisers."

On the same day, at the Customer Engagement Technology World (CETW) trade show at the NY Jacob Javits Center, a totally different audience focused on Digital Signage was exposed to 3DFusion glasses free technology at the Vira booth.

Once again the participants of the show were impressed with the unprecedented clarity of 3D images without glasses.
  According to Insight Media, "Their (3DFusion) display not only had acceptable resolution and few AS-3D artifacts as you moved around but it had excellent color, brightness and contrast."

And as a New York City Industry publication, Examiner.Com reported on CETW in its Nov 12 issue, "One of the most exciting technologies on display was 3DFusion's remarkable three-dimensional television... this one did not require special glasses to deliver a highly effective three-dimensional image, which is visible from every angle that a standard 2D flat panel monitor is."

As Ilya Sorokin, CEO of 3DFusion stated, "It took us four years to get here, but we finally showing the world that 3D is not only beautiful and natural but it can be enjoyed without constrains and discomfort of the 3D glasses."

Further confirmation came from Daily Variety editor, David Cohen's November 17 article quoting CEO James Carlton of HC 3D and his business partner Charlotte Huggins, producer of "Journey to the Center of the Earth." (3D Movie)

Huggins said: "Without a doubt it's the first glasses-free 3D I've ever seen that completely worked for me," adding that "I have never wanted my HDTV at home to be 3D until (seeing the 3DFusion)."

Carlton said, "I had the same feeling I had when I saw HD for the first time in 2003. If the technology is what it appears to be, it could be groundbreaking."

The unique position of the 3DFusion end to end technology platform is that it addresses all of the aspects of glasses free solutions. The key to the 3DFusion 3DTV platform is its ability to adjust the depth factors of the image, to the taste, comfort and visual preference level of the viewer.

The company is looking for investors and strategic partners to make this technology available for widespread vertical market
applications.

3DFusion Brings 3D TV to Hollywood
"Excited about 3D TV but skeptical about the glasses? You may want to check out a demo of the 3DFusion autostereo (glasses-free) 3D TV.

3DFusion unveiled its glasses-free flatscreen at the Paul Kagan 3D conference in Gotham in October, generating some buzz on tech websites. We saw it a week later and were impressed enough to invite them to the Variety offices for a demo. We also invited CEO James Carlton of HC 3D and his business partner Charlotte Huggins, producer of "Journey to the Center of the Earth."

3DFusion CEO Ilya Sorokin came to Variety right off the plane without a chance to adjust their gear, and only got the picture to "75%." Even at that level, Huggins said: "Without a doubt it's the first glasses-free 3D I've ever seen that completely worked for me," adding that "I have never wanted my HDTV at home to be 3D until (seeing the 3DFusion)."

Carlton said, "I had the same feeling I had when I saw HD for the first time in 2003. If the technology is what it appears to be, it could be groundbreaking."

3DFusion licensed autostereo patents from Phillips, which abandoned its efforts to market an autostereo TV in the economic downturn. They return to their Gotham HQ today. L.A.-based Tao 3D has struck deal to become the exclusive West Coast partner of 3DFusion for 2D-to-3D conversion, events and advertising."

3DFusion Unveils Glasses-Free 3D TV to Bon Jovi Fans
"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 AS-3D artifacts as you moved around but it had excellent color, brightness and contrast. My photo of the bright displays taken in the dim Best Buy Theater lobby certainly doesn’t do them justice.

3D Fusion is … a relatively new company, founded in 2007, but they inherited [correction: the article should read: “licensed”] a lot of Philips 3D display and software technology. I had seen their display before, as reported in the November issue of LDR. In addition to showing it at CETW, they were using 5 of them in the lobby of the Best Buy theater on Times Square for a Bon Jovi concert. Four of them were used to show the Bon Jovi video "What Do You Got." This had been originally shot in stereoscopic 3D format and then converted to autostereoscopic by 3D Fusion. The 5th unit was showing the lobby and fans live, shot with a 3D camera and converted in real time with 3D Fusion software to AS-3D. I saw the Bon Jovi video images and they looked good. Very good, in fact."

"One of the most exciting technologies on display was 3D Fusion’s remarkable three-dimensional television.  Unlike current 3D TVs on the market, this one did not require special glasses to deliver a highly effective three-dimensional image, which is visible from every angle that a standard 2D flat panel monitor is.  Content can be prerecorded such as movies and other videos, or live 3D broadcast, which can be viewed in real-time."
