Chicago, United States
DaVinci 3D Corp. (www.davinci3d.com)
made its cinematic debut today in conjunction with the International 3D
Society. Jim Chabin, CEO of the Society, asked Steve Blumenthal, CEO of
DaVinci 3D to convert from 2D into 3D, the closing montage for the AOA
(American Ophthalmology Association) meeting, part of the International
3D Society’s outreach program.

The AOA invited the International 3D Society to demonstrate how 3D is
changing entertainment and education. Jim Chabin created the Chicago
montage with Mike Piltzecker of Influence Pictures in LA for the
presentation in Chicago. The clip utilized footage of iconic Chicago
landmark’s including the city skyline.
Mr. Stephen Blumenthal, formerly co-founder and inventor of the 3DFusion
technology, has been a pioneer in auto stereoscopic screens and 3D
conversions for the last 30 years. He recently formed DaVinci 3D, based
in Ithaca, NY, to advance 3DTV for the B2B and consumer markets. DaVinci
has developed accelerated conversion processes for both 3D with glasses
and Glasses free AS3D.
DaVinci 3D introduced its new semi automatic stereoscopic conversion for
Movie theater size screen in Chicago for the first time. Mr. Chabin
praised both the extraordinary effort and the results.
“DaVinci came through under extremely tight deadlines and got a great
ovation from 2500 eye doctors. The clip was a hit,” Chabin praised.
“It was the response we had hoped for,” continued Blumenthal. “We showed
our toughest critics, a With Glasses audience of eye doctors, what our
'Natural 3D' ASD image for the consumer 3DTV market will look like, and
they loved it.”
Summarized Blumenthal, “what differentiates Da Vinci 3D from the field
is that our methodology mimics the naturalness of how our eyes see.
DaVinci 3D AS3D Digital Signage displays (Auto stereoscopic Displays -
ASD) attract attention at a 20’ viewing distance, while offering the
customer a natural, non-abusive 3D image that can be viewed as
comfortably as HDTV. If 3DTV can’t compete with HDTV, it is a non
The successful theatrical demonstration of this inexpensive 2D to 3D
conversion methodology bodes well for the 3D content industry. DaVinci
3D invites Film, Production Houses, Archive and Library owners to
re-evaluate their conversion needs based on DaVinci's dramatically
lowered rates. Contact - firstname.lastname@example.org.
DaVinci 3D will introduce B2B glasses free, ASD 3D sets at the 3D Summit
in LA this September. “Our Chicago debut for 2D to 3D conversion clearly
demonstrates that our conversion technology has ‘legs’. This is the
first high quality 2D to 3D semi-automatic conversion process to come to
market and we are just beginning to convince the skeptics. Our goal is
to transfer this theatrical quality ‘off line’ conversion process into
our real time 3D ASD technology.”
Can consumer sets be far behind? Blumenthal smiled.
