"We see tremendous opportunities for Indian film industry due to the variety and the depth the industry offers," he said.

"India has the largest number of theatres and also it produces the largest number of films across several Indian languages. However, the average realisation per ticket in India is USD 1 when compared to global average of USD 10. The gap is primarily due to lack of use of technology and non-integrated regional functioning of the eco-system," the release stated.

The revolutionary products have been developed jointly by Epica and Dimenco, with the IP of Philips. Epica has got the license from Philips to manufacture and market these products in the Global Market. The USP of these products is not just the 3D visual experience, but also the 3D immersed sound system which has been developed in partnership with Belgium-based Auro Technologies. The product was launched at a press conference by Sohan Roy, CEO, EPICA; Mr. Bas Ploeger, CMO & CFO, Dimenco and Mr. Robert Bose, Vice President from Auro 3D.

Glasses free 3D TV will provide a 3D experience with its auto stereoscopic 4K 65” LCD display that will give a magnificent resolution of 3840×2160 pixels. Combining Dimenco Nabla and Clear View Technologies, the 4K display is able to deliver best depth performance, widest viewing angle, lowest cross-talk and deepest black levels. Auro 3D provides the immersed sound system which is state of art and first of its kind. The glasses-free 3D Televisions will be available in the market from Christmas and the Epica 3D Tab and smart phones will be available in the market from January 2016.

“The lens and system that we have developed with Epica powers the great visual, enabling a viewer to move across the screen while still maintaining the clear 3D visual. The technology in use ensures a viewer doesn’t lose focus even if they moved from one side of the room to the next.” Said Mr. Bas Ploeger, CMO & CFO, Dimenco.

“Epica 3D TV is currently aimed as a professional B2B 3D monitor, which can be used for commercials, out-of-home advertisements, training, medical and engineering educational content display.

“Just having glasses free 3D enabled televisions, tablets or phones will not suffice as content for 3D viewing is necessary. Content was always a challenge for even glasses enabled 3D Televisions which are in the market. Epica Studios to enable content has developed a gateway for users to download 3D content. We presently have over 400 3D games and about 800 3D movies in our repository to download and experience 3D without glasses.” Said Jeemon Pullely, Managing Director, Epica Studio.

The manufacturing unit will generate over 5000 job opportunities. We are targeting to hit at least 8 markets including UK, Singapore, UAE and India. The TVs will be available in sizes starting from 39 inch all the way to 110 inches. The tablets and phones will be made available in the Indian market through Infinite 3 Solutions, our Channel partner and soon through ecommerce network as well.” Said Satish Chandran, Director Epica.
