AMD to Showcase Stereoscopic Blu-ray 3D at CES 2010

Intel logoCES 2010 is only a few week away and manufacturers are already talking up some of the stuff that they will be showing off at the huge show. Last year at CES, NVIDIA was showing off its cool active 3D glasses at its booth and this year AMD is set to go one better.

AMD has announced that it will be showing off Blu-ray stereoscopic 3D playback at the show in January. The demonstration will use the upcoming Blu-ray stereoscopic 3D standard and will allow users to enjoy the same sort of 3D effects and resolution that they get at the theater. The demonstration at CES 2010 will be a joint AMD/Cyberlink effort and will also work for HD gaming.

“AMD has a long, proud tradition of delivering leading technologies to market – technologies that have a meaningful and positive impact on the PC experience,” said Rick Bergman, senior vice president, AMD Products Group. “Stereoscopic 3D is set to be one of these technologies, and that’s why AMD has committed the time and resources to ensure that when Blu-ray stereoscopic 3D is ready for the world, AMD will be ready to bring it to consumers, just as we have done recently with DirectX 11-capable hardware to support DirectX 11 gaming.”

Exactly how long it will take the actual technology to filter into the retail market is unknown. Since the standard hasn't been released, yet it could still be a long time before the final spec is provided allowing manufacturers to ramp up production. One thing that is for sure is that 3D technology will make it into our living rooms.

The interest in 3D and growth of 3D for in home use is growing with a huge increase in patents filed for 3D technology.
