The SENSIO S2D Switch enables users to view 3D material in 2D, extending their accessibility to content and ensuring they get the most out of their investment in their 3D-enabled television, the statement said. The S2D switcher allows a movie purchased in 3D via video-on-demand (VOD) and recorded on a DVR to be viewed in 2D later, regardless of the number of pairs of 3D glasses owned.
“This patent grant adds a vast and fast-growing market for the SENSIO S2D Switch,” said Nicholas Routhier, SENSIO president and CEO. “The ability to view 3D in 2D is essential technology for TV manufacturers, and we anticipate that demand for our patent license will be positively impacted.”
