Agoura Hills, Ca.—Jan 17, 2005
In-Three, Inc., announces the debut of its unique Dimensionalization® Process that Converts Any Flat 2D Live Action or CGI Feature Motion Pictures into Fully Realistic 3D Motion Pictures.
Today, In-Three, Inc., after years of
steady development, is proud to announce the first public screenings of 3D
motion picture images converted from flat 2D live action photography. These 3D
images were converted into fully realistic 3D by use of In-Three’s patented
In-Three’s Dimensionalization® process provides film makers, studios, and
exhibitors with a new solution to 3D movie making and presentation. In-Three’s
Dimensionalization® process is completely accomplished in post-production and,
as a result, filmmakers now have a powerful new tool at their disposal and no
longer have to concern themselves with the inherent complexities and
difficulties of having to shoot in 3D with traditional dual camera systems.
Furthermore, movies converted to 3D via the Dimensionalization® process produce
no eye fatigue for theatre audiences.
With several exciting movies in the works, exhibitors will have a flow of 3D
product and theatre audiences will finally be able to enjoy both new and classic
movie features in an entirely new reality elevated 3D cinematic experience.
James Cameron’s Earthship Productions, Inc. called upon In-Three, Inc. to
Dimensionalize® clips that will appear in their upcoming underwater documentary
“Aliens of the Deep.” “We presented In-Three with a real brainteaser--chaotic
underwater footage of tiny creatures swarming the lens of our remotely operated
2D camera. They were not daunted and the results are remarkable, allowing us to
use original 2D footage as part of our 3D presentation. Viewers feel like they
are up close and personal with some of the strangest life forms our planet has
to offer, thanks to In- Three”, said Ed W. Marsh, Creative Producer of “Aliens
of the Deep.”
The films Producer and Director, James Cameron (“Terminator”, “Titanic”) had
this to say about the remarkable process: "Though I still love 3D original
photography, the technical solution provided by In- Three was a welcome addition
to our palette of stereo film- making tools. They were able to add real depth to
the 2D video images captured by our robotic vehicles, and these shots blended
beautifully with our 3D shots. I predict that their innovative techniques will
continue to expand the possibilities for 3D content."
“We were pleased to be asked by Earthship to Dimensionalize® these shots for
their movie”, said Michael C. Kaye, founder, President and CEO of In- Three,
Inc. of Agoura Hills, CA, a 5½ year old company that has been developing its
amazing technology behind the scenes. “Although the running time of these clips
is relatively short, they fully illustrate our capability to Dimensionalize® any 2D content, regardless of its image source. It can come from 4:2:2 video,
HD, or 16, 35, or 70mm film scanned at any resolution”, added Kaye.
is a high quality depth-restoration process that results in 100% authentic 3D.
It is fully resolution independent. We have finally unveiled our technology, a
real process that works and results in completely believable 3D images”, said
Kaye. “We have already completed a multitude of tests for major studios and key
filmmakers - Dimensionalizing® motion picture content at HD, 2K, and even 4K
resolutions. Further, our process lends itself perfectly to the new technology
of Digital Cinema which is actually capable of projecting 3D images in
digitally- equipped theatres today”, explained Kaye. “All that the digitally
equipped theatres need to do is simply add our wireless 3D glasses and our
In-Three offers a complete package to theatres for equipping
them with 3D eyewear and automatic washing units at a very affordable price. “We
use high quality 3D imaging eyewear of our own design, not the gimmicky red/blue
or passive polarized glasses used in the past. People will be pleasantly
surprised when they put on comfortable high quality 3D eyewear that is available
in sizes to fit all ages”, explained Kaye.
An important benefit of In-Three’s
Dimensionalization® process is that it produces no eye fatigue, which is
critical for being able to watch a full-length 3D feature movie comfortably.
“Our images are as easy to view as normal real world 3D vision. Audiences will
soon discover that they can finally watch a 2 or 3 hour movie with no eye
fatigue whatsoever”, said Kaye.
Although the small number of Dimensionalized® clips in the documentary “Aliens
of the Deep” represents a modest public debut for In-Three, Inc. and its unique
Dimensionalization® technology, there are actually several exciting full length
Dimensionalized® 3D major motion pictures that are now in the works at In-
Three for release in the very near future in Digital Cinemas.
About In-Three, Inc.:
Organized in 1999 to pioneer research and development in stereoscopic reconstruction of two dimensional images, In-Three, Inc. developed and patented a process (called Dimensionalization®) and a suite of software (called IN3D® -- the "In-Three Depth builder") that make it practical to convert 2D films into high quality, artifact-free 3D films. In-Three is unique in offering a director the ability to select the dramatic impact appropriate to each scene. It does this by providing a range of “style” and “degree” choices (see our paper describing Dimensionalization control choices). This capacity to incorporate artistic intent in 2D to 3D construction is an inherent and distinguishing feature of Dimensionalization. In addition to developing and continuing to refine Dimensionalization, In-Three has created the staff and systems that make “Dimensionalization by In-Three” an appropriate choice for directors and studios.
