Sensio Boasts First Live 3D Worldwide Broadcast14 Jul, 2010 By: Chris Tribbey
3D company Sensio says it laid claim to the first worldwide 3D broadcast when it helped deliver 25 FIFA World Cup 2010 matches live to 475 cinemas in 33 countries. There were more than 4,500 screenings in total, the company said.
“Sensio has participated in many historical 3D firsts in our 10 years of business, but the global delivery aspect of this worldwide event from South Africa is unlike anything else in its scope,” said company president and CEO Nicholas Routhier. “We’re particularly proud to have been able to secure the confidence of FIFA and deliver with such a short turnaround time of two and a half months. It’s testimony to the great working relationship we have with our partners, IDC, Cinedigm and Eutelsat.”
Sensio’s 3D live network covers 700 theaters worldwide.
