Sensio Streams in 3-D at NAB Show28 Apr, 2009 By: Chris Tribbey
Sensio Technologies laid claim to a 3-D first at the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB) event in Las Vegas April 17-23.
The Montreal-based stereoscopic 3-D company streamed a live 3-D broadcast via the Internet Protocol (IP) format, showing that it’s possible to distribute 3-D via existing distribution channels to digital movie theaters and the home.
“We demonstrated to producers of live events and to broadcasters that our technology is fully compatible, mature and ready for immediate deployment as it uses existing broadcast equipment, avoiding expensive infrastructure adaptations or modifications,” said Sensio president and CEO Nicholas Routhier.
Also at NAB, Sensio announced that its technology was involved in the first live 3-D event broadcast in Europe, in the form of a basketball game viewed at digital theaters in Italy.
