Imcube 'Future-Proof' 3D Conversion Option
Imcube Labs (Berlin, Germany) is expanding its 2Dto 3D conversion services to comply with H265/3D-HEVC standard for 3D images transmission. With that option, 3D broadcast streams become future-proof as they include the depth maps required by autostereoscopic no-glasses screens to generate their multiple views. This will become more and more important now that 4K LCD panels are paving the way to decent glasses-free stereoscopic screens.
About Imcube Labs
imcube labs GmbH (Berlin, Germany) is the R&D center of the imcube 3D Solutions Group, with operations in Germany, China, Hong Kong and the UAE.
It is a spin-off of the Communication Systems Group of the Technical University in Berlin and it has close ties with the Fraunhofer Heinrich-Hertz-Institute (HHI) for Image Processing. imcube’s founders have been involved in “3D Quality” research and development for over 10 years, in the fields of Computer Vision, 2D to stereoscopic 3D Conversion and native stereo 3D repair.
Recent projects have extended into an alternative hybrid stereoscopic 3D post-production work-flow for feature films and into a dedicated 2D to stereo 3D conversion workflow for broadcast and internet applications. This includes semi-automated tools for stereographers, such as the imcube 3D Instructor for easy conversion instructions, the imcube 3D QC Player for conversion quality control, and the imcube 3D Daily for quick scribble-based test conversions, pre-visualization and mobile conversions.
