2011 exciting and successful year for SeeFront

2011 was an exciting and successful year for SeeFront as we had several good news to share. 

In March, SeeFront and partner ACL GmbH exhibited compelling glasses-free 3D at CeBIT in Hannover. In media coverage before CeBIT, SeeFront 3D technology was featured in German weekly newspaper Die Zeit as well as on TV Channel n-tv (both available in German only).

As a growing company SeeFront moved to new premises as of May 1st. The new office in Hamburg’s city center allows us to grow further and the beautiful view over Lake Alster is something to look forward to every day. 

At IFA in Berlin in September, Sony presented the new 3D Panel for new models of Sony’s personal computer Vaio S-series notebooks. The easy-to-handle 3D Panel turns the notebook into a 3D display for watching 3D Blu-ray movies and viewing 3D photos – without special glasses. This product is based on SeeFront’s unique glasses-free 3D technology. Among the media reporting on the launch were Heise Online (in German) and industry report dvd-intelligence.com (in English). The latter even proclaimed SeeFront 3D technology to be “the best 3D rendering without glasses”.

Only a few days after IFA, Daimler unveiled the Mercedes-Benz research car F125! at IAA in Frankfurt. Crammed with next-generation technology, the vehicle features a glasses-free 3D instrument cluster for the driver – based on SeeFront 3D technology.

In October, SeeFront researchers successfully concluded a development project for switchable 2D/3D displays. This project was supported by the Central Innovation Programme SME of the Federal Ministry of Economics and Technology. Also in October, the Hamburger Abendblatt published a sizeable report on SeeFront and company founder Christoph Grossmann (in German).

The SeeFront team wishes to thank our business partners and everyone connected with or interested in SeeFront 3D technology for their cooperation and continued support. We wish you happy holidays and a wonderful 2012!
