About 3DRevolution: 3DRevolution(TM) LLC was born in January of 2010 and was awarded in June of that year its first major motion picture assignment, Warner Bros.’ Cats & Dogs: The Revenge of Kitty Galore. A further milestone came five months later when the company moved into its new 5,000 square foot studio in South Pasadena, California. 3DRevolution’s technology predecessor, Pixerati LLC, was formed by Damian Allen in 2005 as a visual-effects design and consultancy company and performed its first stereoscopic conversion for Duran Duran in 2005. Over its lifetime, Pixerati has served as a content creator for such high profile firms as Apple Inc., and has provided pipeline consultancy and training in visual effects for studios like Pixar and Disney. In January of 2010, Pixerati transferred the technologies it had been developing for stereoscopic conversion to 3DRevolution(TM). That technology forms the core of what is now the BiVergence(TM) conversion system.
