3D Bee by VEFXi does real-time conversion
by Mark R
For those that are interested in 3D conversion for their 2D systems, you might want to look at 3D Bee from VEFXi.
In a recent demonstration, I saw a two-dimensional animated film being brought to life in 3D, with the glasses. It was done with two vertically stacked 2D projectors and passive polarizer filters, providing crisp 3D that is brighter viewing than available with typical 3D ready projectors.
It is possible to get a kit for stacking the 2D projectors with the professional model, and it is also possible to get the 3D conversion for 3D-Ready projectors that require frame-sequential 120Hz 720p 3D format with the 3D-Bee trainer model.
Then there is the 3D-Bee home for 3D TVs. All of this is good for video game consoles, Blu-ray/DVD players, cable, satellite, not to mention media players, cameras, and computers. Somehow, this converts it to 3D, just like the 2D animated film that I mentioned before. I don’t know how they did it, but it is impressive.
It is also expensive. The 3D-Bee::home for 3D TVs is about $399, the 3D-Bee::trainer for 3D-ready projectors is about $499, and the 3D-Bee::professional with stackable 2D projectors is about $949. Right now, the VEFXi site and 3D-Bee site don’t have any news on when this will be available.
