While currently available as prototype software to industry partners, the company expects to make a 3D Blu-ray version of WinDVD commercially available later next year.
The company says that this prototype is “poised to become a cornerstone of the 3D experience as exciting possibilities emerge with the anticipated growth of PC-driven home theater systems”.
Corel’s Executive Vice President for Products, Joe Roberts, said that its new software will push the evolution of PC entertainment.
“Driven by our goal to offer the ultimate video entertainment on the PC, we’re committed to introducing a new playback application that will bring this absorbing and engaging 3D experience to the next generation of home-theater,” says Roberts.
Nvidia’s General Manager of 3D Vision Business, Phil Eisler, said that they are pleased that Corel is supporting an emerging standard.
“This new prototype software demonstrates Corel’s leading role in the video space and the tremendous potential for the 3D playback experience when used in conjunction with NVIDIA GPUs and 3D Vision technology,” says Eisler.
Customers can see Corel’s 3D Blu-ray prototype software in action at the NVIDIA booth (#35912, South Hall) at CES 2010.
