Live 2D and with-glasses (stereoscopic) 3D broadcasts of the Olympic Games will be auto converted into the stunning 3D without glasses Ultra-D format in real-time, using the Ultra-D SeeCube Conversion Box. The viewing location will also host demos to highlight the Ultra-D technology’s compatibility with the iPad, iTunes, Appstore and the Apple TV. Matthew Young, European representative for Stream TV Networks in the UK said: "We chose Walkabout for the first ever screen as it’s well known as the best live sports venue in London."
The manager of the Covent Garden Walkabout Bar, Dal Jones, states that Ultra-D is "1000% better than anything else I have seen in 3D without glasses. I am very pleased and truly excited to be the first UK bar to be able to offer this to our customers."
Stream TV Networks is placing demo units at high traffic venues in metropolitan areas in the US, Europe, Taiwan and China to showcase the Ultra-D technology to consumer before products become available at retail. In the US, the first venue to showcase Ultra-D will be Blondies Sports in New York City located at 212 West 79th St., also in time for the 2012 Olympic Games.
Ultra-D enables the seamless autoconversion of 2D and 3D with glasses content into autostereoscopic (glasses-free) 3D in real-time, so that virtually every kind of video feed can be viewed in 3d without glasses. The Ultra-D technology has also been optimized for the iOS and Android operating systems for enhanced connectivity to peripheral devices.
Additional consumer viewing locations for Ultra-D technology will be announced in the coming weeks and will include additional venues in New York, Philadelphia, London and various locations throughout China.
"Ultra-D is the first 3D without glasses solution that has been able to eliminate viewing angles and offer the high quality, glasses-free 3D experience we’ve all been waiting for," says Matt Young for Stream TV Networks. He adds, "Being able to offer this in time for the Olympics just adds to the viewing experience and enjoyment of the games being in London."
