rkm3D is our new 3D brand to showcase and explain stereoscopic material. This site concentrates on material that gives the impression of solidity or three dimensionality. It also has sections explaining some of the background and theory of 3D stereoscopy. 3D imagery takes many forms and there are many different technologies used to implement it. Not all of these work on current computer screens but we do have examples of three types that do.
Anaglyphs (the red green glasses type)
Autostereograms (random dot or hidden image stereograms) in which a 3d image appears to float above a pattern. No equipment needed.
Stereo image pairs: simple to use, perfect colour reproduction but small. No equipment needed.
However, we are not limited to those. Since we generate the image (in many cases) from 3D computer models we can supply the basic stereo pairs for use in any technology.
We are always happy to discuss any points with you at any stage. E-mail is fastest but you are very welcome to ring any of our numbers at any time. All have voicemail. Simply choose the one that is closest to you to minimise your call charges. If no one is here please leave a detailed message (including your country and phone number) and we will return your call. If you have not heard from us in 24 hours, please e-mail again giving a phone number and an alternative e-mail address.
