Sony patented universal 3D-points

The Sony company patented technology of 3D-points which can be used with any 3D-TVs in the USA. New points can support various downloaded insertions and offer replaceable modules which will provide support of all 3D-TVs present in the market.

The problem of modern 3D-points is that they work roughly speaking by the same principle, as remote controls. There are cases when control panels from TVs of different producers approach to each other, but in most cases they or badly work (or at all do not work), or do not support a part of functions which support original panels which were made specially for this or that TV. In other words, it how to try to insert the wrong key into the lock. An exit from this situation are programmed control panels, which now in the market on any color, taste and a purse. And so something similar is going to offer Sony with the universal 3D-points.

All 3D-TVs work by several identical principles. They or suggest to use the multi-colored (polarized) lenses – such technology usually call passive 3D, – or support technology active 3D, whose basis are liquid crystal locks. A problem of each of approaches is to provide for each eye the separate image and thus to create illusion of three-dimensional space. And if usual 3D-points with color lenses in principle do not represent problems in production, points with active system of locks – absolutely another story.

Points from a set for the TV of one producer will not work with the TV from other producer. In total because each producer of points tries to use the more unique manufacturing techniques. And it becomes a problem for "barrier" points which use infra-red signals which are synchronized with signals of TVs. As a result such points turn out expensive, and producers take great pain to collect own audience from their owners.

The patent Sony promises points which can be used with the majority if not with all, 3D-TVs, and some approaching offers for the solution of this question. Present points use the infra-red transmitter or built in points, or on the separate special receiver. This infra-red signal should be synchronized with a signal of the TV. It is necessary, that each image arrived on that eye on which it and is calculated. Thanks to it the 3D-effect is created.

According to Sony, the best way to create universal 3D-points are to use in one case microelectronics from receivers and a set of infra-red lenses. Switching between these receivers can be carried out or in manual, having simply changed position of the special toddler on points, or in an automatic mode, depending on the person looks at what source of a signal. Harmonious operation of all device will need the special freely extended software which can be downloaded from the Internet. Of Sony are sure, that recognition of the majority of protocols of work from various producers wearing spectacles will need about 8 receivers.

The design for such universal remedies of viewing of a 3D-content too is offered different. Sony says that, for example, for video games it will be possible to use as the separate universal glasses, so special helmet with the built-in lenses. Points can be modular that in need of replacement of electronics by more modern it would not be required to buy new glasses entirely.
