LAS VEGAS, Jan. 5, 2011 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- People will be able to watch 3D TV without glasses and from any viewing angle at the iPONT International  booth (#25304/25305 in South Hall 2, Home Theater Section) during the 2011 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas.

iPONT, a creator, converter and distributor of glasses-free 3D technology, will showcase the world’s first multi-view autostereoscopic (glasses-free 3D) content at CES this week. Unlike competitive offerings, iPONT’s technology enables viewing of 3D content that can be seen from 120 degrees, without the need for glasses.

According to ABI Research, market growth for 3D solutions is accelerating, with shipments of 3D TV sets to approach 50 million in 2015. Yet, a July 2010 study by Deloitte found that the requirement for 3D glasses is a major issue for consumers, with 30 percent of respondents reporting that they didn't like wearing 3D glasses. According to the firm, 55 percent of Generation Y respondents said they would buy a 3D TV if glasses were not required.

The iPONT 3D TV box converts stereoscopic (3D) non-HDCP protected Blu-ray discs and live, streaming internet--including 3D YouTube videos--into autostereoscopic content, in real-time. The company will be showcasing these capabilities on a 65-inch Tridelity LCD display for wide-viewing almost anywhere in the booth.

"The biggest barrier to interest and adoption of glasses-free 3D content and displays has been the requirement for viewers to sit in a specific spot to fully experience the 3D images," said Zoltán Korcsok, CEO, iPONT. "By offering the ability to view content from any angle--combined with an exploding interest in 3D content and viewing--iPONT can deliver a 3D experience to consumers that is simply unlike anything they have ever seen or imagined is possible."

iPONT will also demonstrate its digital signage solution, ideal for commercial ventures. The company’s cloud-based Network Content Management Service (NCMS) will feature 3D trailers--including MegaMind, Tangled, Tron and Narnia--as well as some of the company’s own original studio creations.  

NCMS is targeted at businesses that sell digital, out-of-home advertising to consumers, including malls and airports, as well as convention centers and sports arenas. It is also ideal for businesses that sell a visual experience, including cinemas, sports bars, amusement parks and casinos.

Visitors to CES 2011 at the Las Vegas Convention Center from January 6-9, can learn more about iPONT and experience the company’s autostereoscopic offerings first-hand at booth #25304/25305 in South Hall 2, Home Theater Section.
