An Australian 3D graphics company claims to have developed a method of displaying stereoscopic 3D programming on a conventional television without the need a dramatic increase in broadcast bandwidth -- or, apparently, special glasses. Dynamic Digital Depth's process uses proprietary software to allow broadcasters to transmit 2D programmes plus extra information on the depth of elements within the picture. A set-top box takes that data and uses depth-queuing algorithms to generate a second image which gives the picture the appearance of 3D. According to the company, the process allows users to select whether they want to watch individual programmes in 2D or 3D, and for broadcasters to transmit 2D programmes alongside 3D ones. DDD claimed it is already talking to numerous TV and set-top box manufacturers about licensing its new 3D technology. ®
