3D Video, the evolution continues.

immersivemediaThe other day the BBC reported on a new start up company that since March 2009 offers 3D imaging technology and 3D videos of live events for users to interactively enjoy. The company called Yellowbird touts this new technology that will change the way we experience events and videos. Almost two yeas ago I already reported on another company Immersivemedia the first to offer this same technology (pictured on the left) and 3D videos. Despite Yellowbird being still in development and rather rudimentary in comparison to Immersivemedia technologies (long available to the military and the public) both companies and the new found public and media attention are a sign of the new momentum that 3D imaging is gaining. Once again I still think that the best of these new technologies and applications has still to come. The technology to support these applications is already here, they just need to be refined and rethought outside the box. Watch demos here (Immersivevideo) and here (Yellowbird).
