Dolby Labs and Nvidia Corp. will demo separate stereo 3-D technologies at the Consumer Electronics Show this week.
Dolby will give a first sneak peek of its approach for playing stereo 3-D video on digital TVs and Blu-ray players. The company, which already is shipping products for 3-D video in theaters, will show its 3-D encoding technology for home products.
The company's technology uses a checkerboard pixel pattern similar to techniques employed in current 3-D-ready digital TVs from Mitsubishi and Samsung. It works with existing Blu-ray, HDMI and MPEG products and existing video formats.
