Advanced Parallax Visualization Technologies

For military and entertainment imaging markets

Technology Overview

v3® imaging technologies have been developed for capturing and displaying three-dimensional parallax depth information. These technologies provide for the creation of v3 imagery that possess an enhanced sense of dimension, sharpness, and with greater texture and realism when presented on a standard unaided display.

The Company has focused its R&D efforts on an area of human perception that is unique and has been largely overlooked by the general imaging industry. As a result, the company has been able to develop and patent a series of fundamental proprietary parallax visualization technologies and tools. When fully deployed the v3 products will provide users with a significant competitive advantage in the marketplace.

Historically, viewing three-dimensional (parallax) visual information has required stereoscopic technology that is not compatible with normal display screens.

This is because stereoscopic systems require left/right visual information to be presented simultaneously (or near instantly) on separate channels to each eye. Stereoscopic imagery requires that left and right images be formatted for 3D monitors which require special glasses or special screens to view.

v3 has taken a different approach to three-dimensional imaging by presenting parallax information over time, in a manner that is compatible with standard unaided displays and media.

Interestingly, the original parallax scanning, which was developed as a method for enhancing the texture and depth of standard two-dimensional imagery, is also applicable to stereoscopic 3D imaging (v3D). When applied, it has been shown to overcome one or more of the problems associated with traditional stereoscopic imaging methods. v3D provides the ability to capture non-horizontal parallax and other sub-process three-dimensional visual information in a manner that triggers a non-fatiguing perceptional response in the viewer. It uses stereoscopic parallax scanning to simulate information captured by the eye’s natural gaze, saccade, and head motions. v3D allows the combined stereoscopic display (left and right views) to present a variety of three-dimensional information to the viewer in a manner that will create a unified realistic visual perception.
