TriOviz system can be applied to any existing software for 3D conversion

The first console 3D SDK has been launched by developer Darkworks.

The license for the new tech was brought from TriOviz, a Paris-based vision science specialist.

The technology allows 3D to be added-on to console and PC games during or after development. It can then be viewed through special glasses on 2D or 3D displays, or without the glasses from a 2D display.

The 3D tool supports all current game engines, and Darkworks have said that it will require as little as a couple of days to integrate, “depending on implementation”.

“Darkworks is keen to bring a truly innovative technology to top game developers and publishers in order to make the 3D experience a reality today,” said Darkworks MD Guillaume Gouraud.

“Consoles already broadcast 3D interactive content in real-time and their interactivity – by nature – empowers game developers to make a more immersive experience than is possible in movies,” he added.

Darkworks have said that the SDK is currently being adopted by several developers.
