Los Angeles — DDD Group, a developer of 3D solutions, said Friday it has licensed its TriDef 3D Mobile content solutions to Hampoo Science & Technology for the world’s first 10.1-inch glasses-free 3D tablets for mass production.
China-based Hampoo is a developer/manufacturer of mobile interactive devices. Hampoo's 10.1-inch tablets are being showcased at this week’s Computex 2013 in Taipei.
The devices use the TriDef 3D Mobile solution to automatically convert 2D photos, videos and games into 3D.
The high-def screens provide 3D viewing without the need to wear glasses.
The tablets are expected to launch in the third quarter of 2013, and DDD will receive quarterly royalty revenues from Hampoo based on the volume of 3D tablets shipped.
TriDef 3D Mobile allows stereoscopic game play for more than 50 Android mobile games, including "Angry Birds," "Blood and Glory" and "Cordy,” even though the games were not specifically developed for 3D, DDD said.
The Hampoo tablets are also compatible with the soon-to-be-released Yabazam 3D Android app, which provides the same original 3D programming available via DDD's Yabazam content portal.
Yabazam has more than 80 streaming 3D movie titles and growing.
Chris Yewdall, DDD chief executive, said, “Our TriDef 3D Mobile solution is gaining traction in the rapidly developing 3D glasses-free tablet market. We are pleased to be welcoming Hampoo as our latest licensee as it prepares to launch the world's first 3D tablet for mass production.”
