China gets the world's first autostereoscopic 3D tablets as new tech allows for larger screens than Nintendo 3DS.
DDD Group has licensed its TriDef 3D Mobile content solutions to Chinese manufacturer Qingyuan Gadmei Electronics Technology for its new glasses-free 3D tablets. Gadmei’s E8-3D 8” tablets will use the TriDef 3D video SDK to convert 2D videos into 3D. The 8” high definition screens provide 3D viewing without the need to wear glasses. They are expected to launch in the second quarter of 2013. DDD will receive quarterly royalty revenues from Gadmei, based on the volume of 3D tablets shipped.
DDD’s TriDef 3D Mobile solution also includes automatic 3D game conversion, which is expected to be included in next generation 3D Gadmei tablets. TriDef 3D Mobile allows over 30 of the latest mobile games to be played in stereoscopic 3D off the shelf, even though the game was not specifically developed for 3D.
The Gadmei tablets are also compatible with the soon-to-be-released Yabazam 3D Android app that provides access to the original 3D programming available via DDD’s Yabazam content portal, which already offers over 80 streaming 3D movie titles for viewing on 3D consumer devices.
