TAIPEI, TAIWAN, June 1, 2011 – COMPUTEX Taipei - Spatial View Inc., a stereo 3D pioneer in content creation and auto-stereoscopic display technologies, and ArcSoft Inc., today announced they have partnered to create a software solution allowing laptop users to watch 3D Blu-ray content without glasses. The technology will be showcased during COMPUTEX at the Grand Hyatt Taipei, suite 1043, May 31 – June 4, 2011.

ArcSoft has integrated Spatial View’s software with their universal movie player, TotalMedia® Theatre 5, to enable glasses-free 3D viewing of 3D Blu-ray content using Spatial View’s 3DeeScreen. Once the TotalMedia Theatre 5 is installed on a laptop, users simply place the Spatial View 3DeeScreen over the laptop display to watch 3D content without glasses. The software includes Spatial View's calibration application and an eye tracking system to ensure an optimal S3D viewing experience when using the ArcSoft TotalMedia Theatre.

"This partnership with ArcSoft allows us to provide a complete glasses-free 3D solution to PC manufacturers," said Paul Roscoe, director of partnerships, alliances and channel management at Spatial View. "The experience of watching 3D content without the need for glasses addresses the number one barrier to the adoption of stereo 3D."

This collaboration will give PC manufactures a simple way to meet the demand for 3D content and allow them to capitalize on the influx of and demand for 3D Blu-ray content without a significant investment in product development.

"The solution allows laptop users to view existing and future 3D Blu-ray content, virtually anywhere," said George Tang, ArcSoft vice president and general manager of video and home entertainment group. "We are excited to partner with Spatial View to deliver a solution that will give people greater flexibility and convenience to watch 3D content."

The Spatial View 3DeeScreen is available for licensing by laptop manufacturers.
