John Lowry founder of TrioScopics says the company has developed stereoscopic imaging technology which consists of proprietary encoding combined with inexpensive glasses and does not require specialized projectors screens players or display equipment thus eliminating a major impediment to the distribution of 3D entertainment. TrioScopics has the potential to make high quality 3D ubiquitous in the marketplace immediately without any equipment investments or expensive upgrades says John D. Lowry founder of TrioScopics. Lowry has been solving picture-processing problems in the motion picture and television industries for 57 years and holds numerous patents on imaging technology solutions. With cost barriers eliminated studios and exhibitors can meet the escalating demand for 3D entertainment and significantly boost 3D earnings potential for d-cinema and home entertainment applications. At the recent 3D Entertainment Summit Lowry used a 48-foot screen to show 3D content that had been processed using the latest iteration of TrioScopics' technology which is the result of three years of research and development. The process combines the left and right eye image pairs into a single color-encoded image that appears as a full color 3D image when viewed through the TrioScopics-designed glasses. Lowry says the TrioScopics system presents excellent 3D depth a wide range of color and superb image fidelity in both digital cinema and home theatre situations. Lowry is active with Lowry Digital which he founded 11 years ago. The Lowry Process a proprietary image processing technology that he developed has been used to fine tune motion pictures like The Curious Case of Benjamin Button as well as to restore hundreds of cinema classics including Citizen Kane the original Star Wars trilogy and the James Bond and Disney Classics libraries. Most recently The Lowry Process was used to restore video images from the Apollo 11 moonwalk for NASA. Early versions of TrioScopics' 3D technology were utilized in the DVD and Blu-ray releases of Journey to the Center of the Earth (October 2008 for Walden Media) My Bloody Valentine (May 2009 for Lionsgate) and Coraline (July 2009 for Universal) for which about 50 million pairs of TrioScopics' glasses were manufactured and delivered. Our 3D technology has improved with each subsequent release and is now poised to provide a state-of-the-art immersive entertainment experience to audiences worldwide says Lowry. There are approximately 6 000 digital cinema installations in North America and over half are not equipped for 3D projection. Our technology meets the growing market demands for 3D entertainment today expanding the number of theaters capable of displaying 3D movies without the need for investments in new screens accessories or systems. We can help distributors and exhibitors put 3D on more screens now instantly creating significant earnings potential. And we think that might be a game changer for the business. Lowry founded TrioScopics with Ian Cavén in February 2007. TrioScopics
