Danish Company Ready With 3D Revolution For Flatscreens

colorcode_3d_glassesIn a matter of a few months, the 65 million people across the world who has a gaming console with the ability to go online, will be able to watch 3D movies from the comfort of their own home.

We’re launching 3DMovieChannel during first quarter next year. Everybody who today can watch movies on YouTube will be able to watch our movies in full 3D. That means everybody with a computer but also the 65 million people with a flatscreen connected to their gaming console.
– Steen Iversen, ColorCode3D

Sony recently announced that they will be ready with 3D televisions next year and Samsung already has a 3D television on the market. Sky, TV provider in the UK, plans on delivering Premier League football matches in 3D already next year, but it requires a 3D television – which is not required in order to watch 3D movies through 3DMovieChannel.

Initially 3DMovieChannel plans on featuring IMAX movies, but the dane Steen Iversen is also negotiating with Hollywood for more movies.

Everything seems to be about 3D right now. Titanic director, James Cameron, is working on a blockbuster named “Avatar” which is said to be the first and biggest attempt on a 3D movie hit. Jeffrey Katzenberg from Dreamworks even believes that 3D is the third revolution of the movie media.

The first one was when silent movies got replaced by talking movies, the second when we went from black and white to colors, he says.

3DMovieChannel does not require much more bandwidth than watching YouTube, only around 10-15% more. If you want better quality on the dedicated 3D flatscreens it will be about the same as watching a HD YouTube clip.

It’s not only about movies though. The 3D glasses that Steen Iversen and his company have designed also allows for use with gaming. They will be using Denmark as their “test market” and they expect to have the 3D glasses and software ready for Christmas with a price tag of less than $60.

A demonstration of the 3D glasses are to be held later this month.

Oh that sounds so cool! I’ve only seen 3D stuff at theme parks in Florida, and it was awesome, so would love to see 3D movies right here at home!

I first saw 3D screens at CeBIT (Hannover) in 2004 or 2005. It was cool, but the screens was less than 20″ as I remember and you had to stand in the exact right spot for the 3D to “work”, otherwise it would just look blurry.

I can’t wait! 3D has come a long way since those days of the cardboard glasses with the green and red lenses, if the TVs are anything like the movies in the cinema, then they are going to be fantastic!

It’s certainly cool to watch 3D movies at Universal Studios in Los Angeles, not only because they add some water/chair effects to it, but because it really looks like the objects are coming out of the screen 🙂 They use glasses though, but still cool.

I really want a 3D TV… imagine you are looking your favorite movies and tv programs on it. Just wondering if it will be harmful for the yes… you know with the cardboard glasses you wear to watch 3D… Everytime I put these glasses, I sometimes feel tired with the eyes when removing them.

I know what you mean, so let’s hope it’s an issue that can be fixed some how – and that it’s not a problem with our eyes 🙂

Hi Kasper and thanks for stopping by and commenting, you must be one of the few Danish visitors to my site, ever 🙂

I can assure you, the only reason this is going to happen in Denmark is because I don’t live there anymore. Had I still lived there, we wouldn’t even be close to 3D television for many, many years – that’s just my luck!

3D has had several false starts over the years, but I’ve heard a few audio/visual guys say that the manufacturers and Hollywood really want it to succeed this time. I voted “must try it out first,” though, because I think it will depend on how realistic it is, and how well they implement it.

Interesting you should mention this, as latetly I am seeing a lot of show trailers here in the UK on Digital TV. I have always known that the 3D Revolution was eagerly in the pipeline as it is an anticipated step in Technonology. It is an obvious spread. It is interesting to watch where it leads especially within the public realm, and observe what happens next..

P.S-In case you are wondering where I saw the 3D TV show trailers, it was on my parents flatscreen. They own quite a large one, and digital TV came included in it.

How did you see those 3D TV show trailers, with 3D glasses or does your parents own a 3D flatscreen? 🙂

Hey Klaus,
I saw them as normal viewing. They didn’t actually show much of the show, just made known that it would be in 3D and when it would come on. I think that was the highlight. I think they are best viewed with a pair of 3D glasses. That is interesting to do. I know that the Final Destination film on the cinema at the moment, is in 3D. There were a few others before too, all Horror related. Make it that ever step more realistic, especially if it’s a Horror, scare the mind out of the viewers. Have you seen anything in 3D latetly?

I saw some 3D Shrek/Terminator scenes in Universal Studios, LA. That was pretty cool – but it was with glasses and they were not very comfortable.

I didn’t know Final Destination was in 3D, wish I could see it in a 3D cinema.
