The CubeUp Real-Time 2D to 3D Converter from KanexPro converts 2D content to three-dimensional video for real-time display on your 3D-ready TV or projector. The CubeUp even has a manual control on the small unit for adjusting the level of perceived 3D depth in the output image. Put KanexPro's sophisticated algorithms to work to enjoy any of your favorite traditionally 2D Hollywood flicks or even home movies in 3D.

The CubeUp converter has a single HDMI input and a corresponding output, so you can place it between your display and your Blu-ray player, set-top box, PC, or other HDMI-equipped device. The converter also performs up-scaling of standard-definition 2D content for HD playback at 1080i or 1080p/720p.

Supporting HDMI 1.4a for 12-bit deep color and lossless audio, the CubeUp also does pass-through of any content, 2D or 3D, without performing conversion. But in 3D conversion mode, it supports side-by-side, top-and-bottom, 3D frame-packing, and 3D page-flip schemes for 3D content delivery to your 3D-ready screen or projector.

Note: Active-shutter glasses required for viewing 3D content on a 3D-ready set, unless you have a polarizer system that allows for the use of passive glasses.

    Comments about KanexPro CubeUp Real-Time 2D to 3D Converter:

    Ok, I was a little leary when the price tag was $19 on xxxx. So I figured I could order it and if it didn't do what it said, I could return it with xxxx's buyer protection. I certainly was pleasantly surprised to find that this little device could do so much! The KanexPro Cubeup does exactly what it says it does! I was amazed to see that there was no loss of quality during the conversion to 3D. Granted, the 3D depth isn't as good as a movie or show shot in 3D. But you certainly do get good 3D conversion on everything you watch. I watched Full Metal Jacket on Encore HD and the 3D would be about a 6 out of 10 score. Mind you that number 1, the movie was made in 1987 and number 2, it wasn't originally made for 3D viewing. I also tried The Walking Dead on AMC in HD. I would still rate the 3D at about a 6 out of 10. But remember, this little device is making something 3D that was not originally suppose to be in 3D.Movies that are made as 3D come out of the screen. 3D movies try to do things that make the screen seem to pop objects out or fly at your face. Movies that are not in 3D don't have these extra effects. You will notice with the Cubeup that it doesn't really make things seem like they are in your living room. It really only gives the screen a depth perception, meaning it looks as if the action is happening behind your TV, like a window. I have not yet seen an object come out at me from the screen in a show or movie that was not made to be 3D. Overall, this is a great little device to own. It makes more 3D content available to you in a world where 3D channels and content are still very limited. I am sure we can expect these types of devices to become more advanced and deliver better 3D in the near future.Note: Remember, you do have to have a 3D television (3D monitor or projector) to view 3D with the KanexPro Cubeup.
