[DDD Mobile now available for TI's OMAP processors making "glasses-free" LCD displays possible for enjoying stereo 3D content on mobile handsets.]
Santa Monica, CA -- DDD Group plc (LSE:DDD), the 3D software and content company, today announces that DDD Mobile(TM), the comprehensive 3D content solution for mobile telephone handsets that allows the presentation of photos, animations and movies in a stereoscopic 3D format, has been successfully delivered on the Texas Instruments Incorporated (TI) OMAP(TM) high-performance, ultra-low power consumption wireless applications processors.
The DDD Mobile software, which resides on the mobile telephone handset, provides a comprehensive 3D content solution taking full advantage of the powerful features of TI's OMAP processors that enable a new class of mobile phones that improve entertainment and productivity features and integrate capabilities of cameras, gaming devices, portable video and music players, laptops and PDAs. The availability of DDD Mobile now makes it possible for handset makers to incorporate the latest 3D "glasses-free" LCD displays within their next-generation, OMAP processor-based wireless products.
Working in partnership with Oxfordshire-based 3D optical specialists Ocuity Ltd., DDD and Ocuity have delivered a 3D prototype handset based on High Tech Computer Corporation's (HTC) Faraday(TM) model that uses the TI OMAP850 processor and Windows Mobile 5. Ocuity enhanced the standard 2D LCD display by adding their patented Polarisation Activated Microlens(TM) technology, resulting in a reconfigurable 2D/3D display that has class-leading image quality, full brightness, and all without requiring the user to wear special glasses.
The prototype handset samples showcase a wide variety of popular genres of present day mobile content, including branded wallpapers, videos and animations, and include DDD's real-time 2D-to-3D conversion solution for both photos and video captured using the built-in handset camera.
DDD, TI and Ocuity will now be in a position to publicly demonstrate the high-impact 3D viewing experience delivered by the sample handsets to a wide range of prospective international customers, including handset manufacturers, display manufacturers, mobile network operators and mobile content providers.
