It seems that the San Diego-based 3D film studio PassmoreLab has licensed a number of its latest 3D films to Nvidia for use on the 3DVisionLive.com online 3D community website, making accessible some of the movie studio’s extensive library of 3D video content available online. Of course you will be required to have 3D Vision-equipped desktop or mobile computer in order to be able to watch these movies online. The first seven titles are expected to be available online in April.
The licensing agreement consists of seven titles from PassmoreLab, with more to follow:
– The original 1968 George Romero zombie thriller “Night of the Living Dead, Now in 3D!”
– Ed Wood’s 1959 cult classic “Plan 9 from Outer Space, Now in 3D!”
– The Science documentary “The Extreme Nature of Bats”
– The Science documentary “Microworlds”
– Extreme downhill skateboard racing documentary “DROP 3D: My Life Downhill”
– Extreme snowmobile documentary “S:4 The Product”
– The PassmoreLab original animated short “Holy Moly”
The 3DVisionLive.com website is an online community where users of Nvidia’s 3D Vision technology can enjoy and share a broad range of 3D content on their PCs. It allows them to stream 3D films, trailers, music videos, sport clips, and video shorts, as well as upload, share and view full-resolution 3D photos. Analysts estimate about 75M 3D PCs will be sold per year within five years. (Source: Jon Peddie Research, 75 million PCs in 2014).
