DepthQ s3D Flash WebPlayer

August 18th, 2009 · 4 Comments · General 3D News


The company Lightspeed Design started showcasing their new DepthQ s3D WebPlayer that can allow the easy streaming of SD and HD video online over your web browser with very good quality and results. The s3D WebPlayer is using Flash technology to deliver the anaglyph content the the demo videos are looking very good even when looked with not so fancy Stereo 3D technology such as the quite popular and very affordable anaglyph one. You just need a pair of normal paper anaglyph glasses (red/cyan filters) and an up to date version of the flash player installed for the browser you are currently using and you are ready to watch high quality anaglyph stereo videos without having to cope up with the normal compression artifacts you normally see when streaming this type of videos. At the moment you can only see example video with the DepthQ s3D Flash WebPlayer streamed from their website and the video actually has quite nice color reproduction that you don’t normally expect when watching stereo anaglyph videos. This is done thanks to the specially optimized anaglyph mode that the company is using instead of the normal mode, when colors are not so easily percepted and the videos usually don’t have very good colors.

    i may be alone with this opinion but i think at this time any kind of anaglyph is poison to the s3d movement.

    i have both the nvidia 3d vision shutter glasses and a set of anaglyph glasses and i feel that if peoples first impressions of this new age of s3d is anaglyph we will loose a lot of them right from the start. if people want to see s3d they should go to a digital 3d cinema or buy any full color system for home use.
    anything else will leave the same feeling as we had in the 80’s wich is “ah nice gimmick” instead of “wow lets do the next big step after going b&w to color tv”

    Yes, you may be right, but at the same time it is hard to convince somebody to just buy expensive 3D Vision shutterglasses and a new monitor just for something that might be great. Even if you start with the very cheap option that anaglyph stereo gives you, if there is someone to explain you the disadvantages of anaglyph and what to expect when switching to 3D Vision it will be much easier to convince him if he is trying S3D for the first time.

    Craylon, gotta agree with you 100 %. The very word “anaglyph” is hard to spell and should be banned from internet.

    i tried the demo yesterday and i touhgt it wasn’t half bad.
    especially the 1st few second with the car presentation looked nice.

    i also liked that the webpage itselve had a nice s3d feel to it.
