Single lens 3D technology developer ISee3D Inc. announces new milestones in standard dual lens 3D. The company has introduced a solution that can cut down size and increase frame rates, possibly leading to a range of practical applications allowing it to enter other markets, such as automotive, industrial, consumer, and medical devices.

The advanced new technology dramatically reduces the thickness of the elements to fractions of a millimeter, making it possible to use the innovation with a wider variety of lenses and reducing the space required. ISee3D technology is optimal for equipping webcams, high magnification microscopes, endoscopes, 4 and 5K cameras and consumer camcorders!i.e. devices where space is at an absolute premium and performance is critical. In the field of endoscopy, the ability to capture 3D images through a smaller device enables less invasive surgeries. The new ISee3D innovation in this field allows a 3D endoscope to produce as much or more light as a 2D device of the same size.

ISee3D has also patented technologies that enable the simultaneous capture of stereoscopic image pairs from a single lens to a single image sensor. This increases the range of available capture speeds, enabling both faster and slower frame rates.

Some of the industries and applications of 3D are as follows:

???Medical!Enables a wider range of 3D endoscope sizes and a number of minimally invasive surgeries, including those performed by surgical robots
???3D Microscopy!Enhances precision and effectiveness for researchers utilizing high magnification microscopy
???Consumer!Camcorders, webcams, mobile devices: enables 3D devices that function as 2D devices
???Industrial!Automotive driver support systems (i.e. adaptive cruise control, braking assistance, blind spot monitoring, air bag deployment, etc.), robotics, underwater exploration, gas/oil exploration
???Broadcast!Enables real time, natural 3D broadcast and smaller 3D cameras for use in confined spaces.

ISee3D has a growing pool of licensable technologies primarily focused on the capture of 3D through a single lens across a variety of applications, as well as partnerships with consumer camera manufacturer DXG and medical research company Hamilton Thorne Ltd.
