LOS ANGELES, June 7, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- DDD Group plc (AIM:DDD) (OTCQX:DDDGY), the 3D solutions company, has licensed its TriDef 3D Mobile content solutions to Hampoo Science & Technology Co. Ltd for the world's first 10.1" glasses-free 3D tablets for mass production.
Based in China, Hampoo is a leading innovative mobile interactive device solution provider. Hampoo's new 10.1" tablets are being showcased at Computex 2013 this week in Taipei. These devices use the TriDef 3D Mobile solution to automatically convert 2D photos, videos and games into 3D. The screens are high definition and provide 3D viewing without the need to wear glasses.
The tablets are expected to launch in the third quarter of 2013. DDD will receive quarterly royalty revenues from Hampoo based on the volume of 3D tablets shipped.
TriDef 3D Mobile allows over 50 of the latest popular Android mobile games, including "Angry Birds", "Blood and Glory" and "Cordy", to be played in stereoscopic 3D 'off the shelf', even though the games were not specifically developed for 3D.
The Hampoo tablets are also compatible with the soon-to-be-released Yabazam 3D Android app, which provides the same original 3D programming available via DDD's Yabazam content portal. Yabazam has over 80 streaming 3D movie titles for viewing on 3D consumer devices and that number is expected to grow significantly over the next year.
Chris Yewdall, Chief Executive of DDD, said:
"Our TriDef 3D Mobile solution is gaining traction in the rapidly developing 3D glasses-free tablet market. We are pleased to be welcoming Hampoo as our latest licensee as it prepares to launch the world's first 3D tablet for mass production."
Star Wang, Chief Executive of Hampoo, said:
"With DDD's proven TriDef 3D solutions we can offer a full range of 3D entertainment and gaming with our new glasses-free 3D tablets, which is very important for our customers. We are committed to bringing more innovative solutions to the market in future."
