The worlds largest video calling service Skype confirms that 3D video calls are under development. The news reported by BBC by a senior executive in an exclusive interview before Skype’s tenth anniversary.
Mark Gillett the head of Skype says in the interview that “We’ve done work in the labs looking at the capability of 3D-screens and 3D-capture,” We’ve seen a lot of progress in screens and a lot of people now buy TVs and computer monitors that are capable of delivering a 3D image.
“But the capture devices are not yet there. As we work with that kind of technology you have to add multiple cameras to your computer, precisely calibrate them and point them at the right angle.
“We have it in the lab, we know how to make it work and we’re looking at the ecosystem of devices and their capability to support it in order to make a decision when we might think about bringing something like that to market.”
Recently Hollywood Director James Cameron says that ‘all forms of entertainment will eventually be 3D”.
