Old-fashioned 3-D has gone high-tech. New technology being developed by Canadian firm Sensio Technologies Inc. that transforms 3-D into a smooth, digital experience and is soon to be available on consumers’ TVs was on display Saturday at the Consumer Electronics Show.

Consumers will be able to buy a TV set that is 3-D ready, stream video on their computers in 3-D, play video games and watch live concerts or sporting events in this format without the ill effects.

Sensio’s technology has been used in the broadcast of live concerts and sports events in theatres, 3-D movies on DVD, TV sports events and shows.

The Montreal company is betting that consumers want a reality-like experience.
“A lot has changed since the 1950s,’’ Sensio CEO Nicolas Routhier said in Las Vegas yesterday.
