Do you own a 3D TV or 3D projector? If you've watched much in 3D you'll probably agree that it makes for a much more immersive viewing experience. The problem is finding enough 3D material to watch. There still aren't that many 3D Blu-ray titles, and cable and satellite programs in 3D are limited. Most 3D TVs include basic 2D-to-3D conversion, but the results can be...underwhelming. And that's understandable because converting high-definition 2D video to 3D in real time requires serious processing power — the kind of power built into the compact 3D-Bee Diamond.
This is a job for a specialist
VEFXi builds sophisticated video processors. Some of their products are made for consumers and some are made for broadcast professionals. The 3D-Bee Diamond is their best 2D-to-3D converter for consumers. VEFXi's brilliant technology delivers crisp, natural looking 3D. Any 2D high-def video (720p, 1080i or 1080p) can be converted to 3D. All your HDMI video sources — cable or satellite TV box, Blu-ray player, video game console, HD camcorder or DSLR — will come to life in beautiful 3D. The 3D-Bee also works with media streamers like Apple TV®, so you can give web video from Netflix®, Hulu®, and YouTube® the 3D treatment.
You're in control
It's easy to add the 3D-Bee to your system. Just connect an HDMI cable from each video source — up to four— to the 3D-Bee, then use a single HDMI cable from the converter to your TV. Whenever you want to watch in 3D, just switch on the 3D-Bee using the supplied remote. The converter does a very convincing job of making video that was shot in 2D look like it was shot in 3D. Its state-of-the-art 2D-to-3D conversion is enhanced significantly by its controls for the 3D effect. That really sets this box apart from the 3D conversion capabilities of 3D TVs. There are presets for movies, sports, and gaming, as well as independent controls for image depth and image "pop-out," each with 11 different settings. So, if you like your 3D with just a little added depth, you can have it. Or if you prefer a more over-the-top experience with objects appearing to fly out of the screen, you can do that, too. It's 3D your way.
