@DEPTH 2.0 simplifies 2D into 3D. But how? @DEPTH 2.0 contains two major new features. These are the introduction of the ‘Accurate’ algorithm and the Depth Maps Creation Service (DMCS).

Dimenco showcased at NAB this year its technology that extends the capabilities of 3D content-enabling software and show attendees were very interested.

@DEPTH 2.0 Details

@DEPTH 2.0, based on Philips and Dolby technology, empowers content creators and post-production companies with a cost-effective (semi-automatic) and high quality offline conversion of existing 2D video content to any 3D content format that the user requires.

The way it works is @DEPTH 2.0 uses “depth maps” in order to create 3D data. These depth maps are grey scale images in which the user can bring objects to the front by coloring them whiter and can send objects to the back by coloring them a deeper grey.

01 - Dimenco of the Netherlands showcased its @DEPTH 2.0 software at NAB earlier this year. The program and service works with "depth maps" to create 3D stereo content from 2D film data.

In addition to converting 2D content, @DEPTH 2.0 is the perfect tool to edit 3D stereo-content. It calculates the depth information from high-definition stereo content in a fully automated process, using the disparity between the left and right images. This gives the user the ability to compose shots, edit the amount of depth per frame and render for different types and sizes of 3D screens.

Depth Maps Creation Service
Via @DEPTH 2.0 the user can make use of the fully trained and experienced artists at Dimenco, who can manually create the depth maps for the user. This feature allows the user to take full control over its budget and increase the speed of the conversion.

Using the @DEPTH 2.0 software it is now possible to order depth maps of the key frames for only $5. Simply upload your chosen keys frames via @DEPTH 2.0 and order the depth maps for these frames. The ordered depth maps are finished within 3 working days. With the created depth maps @DEPTH 2.0 will calculate the depth maps in-between, enabling high quality low cost conversion.

Customers can download a free 30 day trial version, try out the experience and provide feedback to the product team. The trial version of @DEPTH 2.0 is available via the Dimenco website. Estimated license per seat per year is $2500. Educational pricing as well as volume licensing are available.
