CyberLink first with 3D Blu-ray showing PowerDVD 3D in Sin City

Should be out midway through 2010 if all goes well

CES 2010 - If all goes well, consumers should be able to get their first taste of 3D Blu-ray on their computers and laptops midway through this year.

 

During Digital Experience we hooked up with Tom from CyberLink here in the USA who gave us a rundown on the technology, a look at the different glasses options and probably your very first look at PowerDVD 3D up and running for real, albeit a very early version, but a look nonetheless. Watch our video below.

 

 

In the demo that was on show, an Intel P55 system was setup and considering that 3D Blu-ray requires two renders of the movie to produce the extra dimension, the CPU usage of around 4 - 8% was amazing, and we are working with early software and drivers - and that is something to keep in mind.

 

Judging by what I saw, it seems like progress on the new tech is going very well and we might actually see a launch as mentioned. But for all the folks involved in Blu-ray on PC, let's get bitstreaming working, like now... okay?
