Stereo D LLC Picks Quantel 'For Quality'

A leading specialist 2D to 3D conversion house has picked Quantel for interactivity and quality.
Stereo D LLC, the Los Angeles conversion company, has purchased a Stereo3D-equipped Quantel iQ DI system and put it into immediate service on the 2D to 3D conversion Stereo D LLC is currently performing on The Last Airbender.
"While we use specialist 2D to 3D conversion technology for the transformation of the imagery, iQ gives us the ability to review the results in realtime at full resolution and also to interactively manipulate the 3D vergence to get the stereo image working perfectly," said Aaron Parry, Stereo D LLC Chief Executive Officer.
"We looked at all the available stereo-equipped systems on the market, but the Quantel 3D toolset and interactivity put the iQ well ahead of anything else around, and of course, being Quantel, its image quality is unmatched," Parry added.
"Critically, it also includes a full editing, colour correction, effects, compositing and titling toolset - in fact, every finishing tool you need in a single system.
"This means that we never have to compromise on 'good enough' because all the tools are right there to get a perfect result every time, without losing valuable hours or sometimes days moving the job between systems."
Stereo D, LLC was created by entrepreneurs in 2009 who are helping lead a new movement into the world of 3D feature films and content.
Stereo D uses proprietary software to create the highest quality 3D images and is located in Hollywood, California.
