Next Step Towards Better TV Viewing Experience


Infinity By Nine

Infinity By Nine

Rather than having a huge TV that fills up the entire wall of your room, researchers at MIT’s Media Lab came up with an interesting and cheaper alternative approach to improve your viewing experience with additional screens that target the viewer’s peripheral vision.

This system is known as Infinity-By-Nine system which has been developed by Daniel Novy and V. Michael Bove Jr. Instead of simply stretching the video to the complete area, this system uses custom software that generates and renders a real-time extension of the image on either side of the TV. Since our peripheral vision is never in focus, the extensions being generated only have to be crude blobs and blurry shapes to sell the effect. It means that you don’t need any supercomputers for it. The system can run on consumer-ready hardware only.

During testing in the labs, the system has helped to draw the viewer into the on-screen story and universe. And it has even been found to create the illusion of feeling other sensations, like heat when an on-screen explosions feels like it’s completely surrounding the viewer.
