MasterImage 3D and Rightware have formed a partnership to offer an out-of-the-box autostereoscopic 3D (AS3D) solution.

The combination provides device manufacturers a fast lane for creation of the most intuitive AS3D glasses-free design for mobile, consumer and automotive devices. A demonstration is available at MasterImage 3D’s booth at Computex 2100 (Hall 3, G0766) in Taipei.

In this alliance, MasterImage 3D’s Cell-Matrix Parallax Barrier uses a “cell gap” approach for a glasses-free 3D experience with a wide viewing angle. Rightware focuses on the software aspects and has released the world’s first commercial AS3D user-interface software solution for embedded devices, using its Kanzi UI Solution.

“This partnership means device manufacturers can have access to the latest AS3D software and hardware from one partnership. We’ve been working closely with MasterImage 3D and we’re extremely excited about the quality of their cell-parallax implementation,” said Tero Sarkkinen, CEO of Rightware.

“Device manufacturers are aggressively including AS3D in their new offerings, seeking ways to provide real consumer value and differentiate through enhanced 3D design.”

Roy Taylor, executive vice-president and general manager at MasterImage 3D, said:

“One of the most thrilling contributions to the 3D content ecosystem is dynamic and interactive visual navigation.

“Rightware is an inspired pioneer in introducing new consumer experiences and its Kanzi 3D UI running on barrier really showcases the beginning of an incredible industry."
