TDVision Systems Honored with 2013 Lumiere Award for Technology
BEVERLY HILLS, Calif., Feb. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire-iReach/ — TDVision Systems, at a black-tie reception at the Beverly Hills Hotel, was awarded the International 3D Society’s most prestigious honor, the Lumiere Award. The Lumiere Award for technology recognized TDVision’s groundbreaking 2D+Delta video coding system which is now standardized as part of the Multiview Video Coding (MVC) amendment to the H.264 video compression standard selected by the Blu-ray Disc Association as “Blu-ray 3D”.
“3D Blu-rays are being seen by millions of consumers on their new 3D flat screens. The companies receiving our LumiereTM statuettes have helped to create much of this magic for fans in theatres and at home,” said Jim Chabin, President of the Society.
“The Awards Committee focuses on technologies that represent genuine advances in 3D and that have a demonstrated impact on the 3D professional or consumer,” said Jim Mainard, Chairman of the Society’s 3D Technology Awards Committee and Head of Digital Strategy at DreamWorks Animation
On receiving the award, Manuel R. Gutierrez Novelo, CEO, CTO and President of TDVision and inventor of the 2D+Delta encoding and the Dynamic Convergence technologies thanked the Society. “It is a great honor for our founders, our investors and our team to receive this fantastic Lumiere from the International 3D Society. This award is the result of following our goal: To provide the user with the highest visual quality experience for stereoscopic 3D media. We are motivated to relentlessly innovate and move forward to create the next radical breakthrough in 3D videocoding. We want to thank all our industry partners who are making this massive adoption of Full HD 3D possible for the benefit of entertainment, education, science and many other unimagined applications. Thank you again.”
At the event, Ethan Schur, Chief Marketing Officer for TDVision, commented on the importance of the award to the not only the company, but the industry. “We have a responsibility to meet consumer expectations when it comes to 3D video quality. So often the capture and display segments of the 3D ecosystem are focused on with little heed to the impact of compression technology. That’s why we are so grateful to the 3D Society and its judging panel who did the diligent research that resulted in this distinguished award recognizing our hard work”
TDVision Systems, Inc. is the owner of several 3D-related key patents now listed as part of different standard stereoscopic architectures such as ISO, MPEG and AVC. TDVision’s technology allows the acquisition, encoding, deployment, decoding and visualization of stereoscopic 3D HD video streams and computer-generated content within the 3D ecosystem. TDVision’s solutions are based on firmware and software changes to enable true 3D HD on current infrastructures. The solutions are ubiquitous, fully compatible and even allow 2D legacy compatibility with existing infrastructures.
The TDVision system is display agnostic, meaning it can be displayed on any existing stereoscopic display. This can be done at the best native resolution and without any detriment in quality, allowing users complete freedom in selecting any existing 3D or 2D display system. www.tdvision.com
