The company’s newly appointed Managing Director, Jason Robinson, has over 25 years experience in the leisure, retail and themed entertainment sectors. Jason first worked with 3D projection in 1992 and is a patented inventor with a full UK patent granted in June 2010 for a Peppers Ghost 3D effect. Jason brings with him a wealth of Management and Technical experience.

‘Having been approached to lead this young and dynamic company is a fantastic opportunity to create a unique service within the industry. I am looking forward to working with Janne (company founder and Technical Director) in developing a new team from a London base to really change the way creative media is used in a 3D infrastructure’ says Jason Robinson.

Set to be another addition to the team is Jon Vogel, one of Europe’s leading 3D specialists. Jason and Jon have worked together since 2005. Jon will be the 3D consultant to Beatpixels.

In a career spanning 30 years, Jon has worked on all aspects of 3D, from design, origination and production, through to project management and installation. He has completed 3D projects all over the world and worked with over 50 blue chip clients.

Founder of Beatpixels Ltd and creator of dimension+, Janne Taponen, comments, ‘we at Beatpixels are delighted to have Jason and Jon on board and to strengthen industry expertise within the company”. Janne will continue to be the Technical Director of the company.

Beatpixels Ltd to release automated 3D conversion service

Beatpixels Ltd are announcing the release of public beta of the first automated online 2D to 3D conversion service, dimension+.

The service will allow the users to create good quality conversions for autostereoscopic displays, literally with a click of a button. “Dimension+ makes it possible to get a good quality still image from your computer onto a glasses-free 3D screen in less than five minutes” says the company founder Janne Taponen.

The public beta version is currently limited to conversion of still images with video conversion capabilities added to the full version, due to release later this year. The pay-as-you-go pricing model and the fully automated conversion is intended to make it simple and affordable to convert even large quantities of content.

Janne Taponen explains the motives behind creating the service; “There seems to be discrepancy between the development of the display products and content creation tools”. States Taponen about the traditionally hard to use specialist tools and continues; “With dimension+ we’ve tried to address two key issues, content creation and repurposing, currently standing in the way of wide-spread adaption of 3D in digital signage networks.”

The public beta version is currently only available for selected Beatpixels Ltd partners.
