SeeFront receives Innovation Award IT
Glasses-free 3D technology wins in Entertainment/3D category
The Innovation Award IT is already the second award SeeFront received this year for its unique glasses-free 3D display technology. In January SeeFront won the "Selected Landmark in the Land of Ideas" Award in the nation-wide competition "365 Landmarks in the Land of Ideas" 2012. Additionally, SeeFront has been chosen by the jury as one of three nominees in the category Economy for the National Award ("Bundessieger"). The winner will be announced in autumn.
"When founding and building up a company, awards are not the first things to consider," said SeeFront founder and CEO Christoph Grossmann (58). "That's why it's all the more special to receive recognition for innovative achievements on top of the economic success of the company. The award ceremony was the icing on the cake of a successful CeBIT week."
SeeFront showcased the 3D version of the gaze-controlled arcade game EyeAsteroids(TM) at the booth of Tobii Technology in hall 26. With SeeFront's patented glasses-free 3D and accurate gaze tracking from Tobii's award-winning technology, EyeAsteroids now enables users to save the Earth from impending asteroid destruction by using their eyes in a completely immersive 3D experience.
About SeeFront 3D Technology: 3D without glasses
The patented SeeFront 3D technology allows the user to view 3D content without special 3D glasses. An integrated eye-tracking system detects the user's position and transmits it to the 3D engine. This engine combines the images for the left and right eyes in a special way and in real time. An optical filter in front of the display generates a brilliant, compelling 3D impression. As the 3D image is continuously adjusted according to the user's position, the user enjoys freedom of movement in all directions. The SeeFront 3D technology is perfect for entertainment or professional use by a single viewer with a laptop computer, a mobile device or any other LCD display.
