iPONT + SES Astra... @ IBC 2011 With... (3DTV)
iPONT International, an innovator and technology partner in the glasses-free 3D market, and SES Astra, an SES company (Euronext Paris and Luxembourg Stock Exchange: SESG) will demonstrate ‘live' 3D broadcasts on glasses-free 3DTV technology on SES stand 1.B51 at IBC 2011. The demonstration aims to prove that without-glasses 3DTV technologies have reached a level of maturity and quality acceptable to the consumer market. For the demonstration, iPONT will install a wide-angle 42-inch autostereoscopic (without-glasses) LCD screen with its proprietary 3D TV box, a device that streams real-time 3D broadcast content from a satellite receiver to the display, performing a real-time stereo to auto-stereo conversion. Content from the SES ASTRA 3D demo channel will be played through the receiver.
