ITRI 3D Playback Technology Set for 2010 Launch

The Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI) is currently developing a 3D playback technology and is set to commercialize the technology in 2010, according to ITRI. Although ITRI's 3D playback technology is already able to transcode a 2D source for later watching on 3D-enabled equipment, the institute is aiming to make the technology able to perform real-time transcoding, ITRI added.

Currently, both Quanta Computer and Asustek Computer have expressed their interest in the technology. The institute added that it expects the commercialized solution to significantly reduce players' costs.
