ArcSoft, Inc., the world-leading multimedia software provider, announced today its collaboration with SENSIO to support 3D playback in DVD movies, so PC users can enjoy the same effects at home as they are sitting in movie theatres.

Using the new 3D video decoder software SENSIO S3 Decoder, ArcSoft TotalMedia® Theatre is now able to display 3D content.
