‘REAL’ The 3D/CD CD/Rom, produced by Marc Dawson, Studio 555. Serial no: NZPATAPP505513.
An instant classic, REAL the 3-D/CD CD/Rom is a CD Masterpiece consisting of a handful of separate production projects. It would make a very interesting Christmas present.
Real consists of 17 Live Sound recordings, 3-D photography, a music video, a 3-D movie and a 3-D slide show.
There are 13 CD playable tracks. The compilation consists of 5 Waikato bands - Whisperscream, The Plant People, Ezy Street, Bitumus and Tetnus.
17 audio tracks can be played on your PC and can be selected from an on screen 3-D list of Audio Events.
The quality and clarity of the Anaglyphic 3-D is best demonstrated in the 3-D slide show. Its full screen images consist of iconic features and landmarks that celebrate a theme of leisure and entertainment. Included are images of the venues at which the Audio Events took place.
Anaglyphic Contrast Balance (ACB) is the state of the art in 3-D imaging and is an exiting new vehicle for the promotion of recording artists and the music industry and for internet display. This contribution to 3-D imaging and photography is an improvement on existing prior art. (ACB) enables 3-D images for print, monitor, TV or projection with improved bright register with dynamic and balanced contrasts that are perceived in colour with near total extinction of the opposing eyes view. Contrasts from the full spectrum are perceived within each colour channel through the coloured viewers. Other embodiments of the Patent involve apparatus for the production and display of 3-D images. An Electro-optic/anaglyphic embodiment enables full colour to each eye without the strobing associated with electo-optic shutter LCD viewing. One embodiment termed ‘Quadrascopic’ enables the concurrent perception of both vertical and horizontal parallax. Another embodiment enables a choice of two 3-D programmes from the one image signal where unaided viewing with full colour to each eye is also achieved.
The New Zealand Patent office has sealed and granted a letters Patent to Marc Dawson for ‘Method and Apparatus for producing Anaglyphic 3-D Images’ There are Patents pending in Australia, the UK, USA and Canada.
When living in Santa Monica in 1998 Marc researched three-dimensional technology and systems at the Patent depository in downtown Los Angeles. Being familiar with the form and structure of Patent documents, he was able to write his own specification and claims. Licencing may be pursued with James and Wells attorneys Hamilton.
