Alioscopy 3D Auto-Stereoscopic Workflow

Alioscopy USA, a 3D visualization technology provider, demonstrated during NAB 2009 finished auto-stereoscopic 3D content playing on its LCD display. The company also provided information on how artists and technical directors (TDs) can use Autodesk 3ds Max software (with planned future support for Autodesk Maya and Autodesk Softimage software) and Autodesk Toxik software to help create and composite auto-stereoscopic 3D animated content for playback on Alioscopy LCD displays.
Alioscopy delivers "no-glasses" auto-stereoscopic 3D display technology. The company is building a community of 3D artists to learn and master the techniques of creating Alioscopy-ready templates and content for playback on Alioscopy LCD displays fitted with a proprietary lenticular lens.

Industries well suited to Alioscopy digital signage display solutions include: retail, hospitality, medical visualization, serious games and 3D games, casinos and gaming, theater lobbies, trade shows and exhibitions, concerts, and events.

At NAB, Alioscopy demonstrated how artists can create scripts and expressions for their 3D content and perform the necessary Red-Green-Blue (RGB) sub-pixel separation that corresponds to the Alioscopy 8-view interleaving process--resulting in the Alioscopy auto-stereoscopic 3D "no-glasses" effect. Using certain Autodesk 3D software and Toxik, 3D artists can streamline workflow by not having to go into-and-out of multiple applications to complete the 8-view mixing process.

Alioscopy recently won the DailyDOOH “Best In Show Award “ from Media Expo Europe, given to products and technologies that represent the most innovative product, the most thought-provoking solution, or something that caught the judges’ eyes and inspired or excited them. Judged among five other auto-stereoscopic 3D solutions, Alioscopy won for its headache-free display that gave the most crisp and clear image.
