3ality Technica, formerly 3ality Digital, is a Burbank, California based company specializing in high-definition, live-action stereoscopic digital 3D. The company develops production systems, image processing software and other technologies that enable the creation, post-production and distribution of live-action 3D entertainment.

Products[edit]

3ality Technica offers technology in two categories: The company’s 3Flex camera rig systems enable 3D image acquisition, and have been used in the production of feature films, scripted television shows, and live-action 3D sports broadcasts.[1]

The company’s 3Play image processing systems provide dynamic image correction, image manipulation, and multiplexing and demultiplexing algorithms for transporting 3D high-definition content over conventional high-definition infrastructure channels.[2]
