3D: The follow-up
Last week, I wrote here about the press conference being held in Beijing with Stream TV Networks, the company I've been writing about for seven years with the Ultra-D technology for glassless 3D television. As I noted, their technology works wonderfully (I've seen working TV sets for several years now), but there have been hurdles getting the product out and deals set up. Also, at one point, they pulled back from their 4K sets because they wanted to get ahead of the market and began working on 8K sets, which would be backwards compatible.
Last week's press conference was the first time they've been able to announce a major deal, which suggests that production is -- or should be -- around the corner. I've spoken with Mathu Rajan, the president of Stream TV, and he's given me a date which is encouraging, but with the industry being what it is, I'm looking forward to it being definitive. But this new announcement is a major step -- forming a partnership with BOE, the top supplier of panels in the world, including supplying LEDdisplays for Apple (iPads, as well as Macbooks) and Huawei, a major worldwide company in mobile phones and televisions.
Here's how they announced it in the first two paragraphs of their longer press release --
"Stream TV Networks, Inc. and BOE Technology Group Co., Ltd. are pleased to announce the finalization of their long-form strategic agreement to combine the high-resolution panels of BOE, the number one panel supplier globally, with Stream TV's award-winning Glasses-Free 3D technology, Ultra-D. With the new agreement, BOE is entering into the 3D market hand in hand with Stream TV.
"Stream TV Networks and BOE have just concluded a joint press conference in Beijing, attended by Senior Executive Staff from both companies, to showcase the latest versions of Stream TV's Glasses-Free 3D technology. At the press conference, BOE expressed its intention to include Stream TV's technology on their entire series of product lines going forward."
So, at least this step of the journey is official. Updates as they occur...

Thanks for the update press release. I'm not sure if I'd phrase it that Ultra-D's success comes from Vela Technologies, since there are other deals and the success is not yet determined, but it's certainly one of important supports.
