Movidius debuts the MA1133 in its Myriad 3D, a mobile 3D imaging and video platform that enables a 3D experience in high definition (HD) on mobile devices to target 3D-enabled smartphones.

The MA1133 offers a range of 3D functions such as preview, capturing and processing high-quality user generated 3D video and images on a mobile phone; converting any 2D video to 3D in real time, and upscaling and playback of content in HD—all using Movidius' proprietary multi-core processing technology that boasts of an unparalleled 20GFlops of processing power.

Movidius' multimedia processing technology enables capturing stereo still photos and video images using two separate high resolution cameras, and then processing them in real-time into 3D, whether still or video, while also intelligently processing the 3D images for the best viewing experience on a 3D display without glasses (auto-stereoscopic).

MA1133 can also be used to view downloaded 3D or 2D content including simple switching between 2D and 3D display modes.

Sean Mitchell, CEO of Movidius, commented, "Mobile phones are the place where 3D technology will gain real adoption the fastest. 3D entertainment may have started in the cinema, but the phone is something people experience every day. And having recently updated their TV sets to HD, consumers are not keen to upgrade again immediately to a 3D TV. Mobile phones on the other hand, are updated every 12-18 months. Also, many fundamental aspects of phones make them ideal for using our new Myriad 3D technology for viewing and capturing 3D images and displaying existing 2D content in full 3D without any need for special glasses."

The MA1133 is the first in Movidius' series of 3D products, with further product announcements to be made soon. Products are sampling to customers today.
