Canada’s Videotron To Launch 3D Content Offering with SENSIO 3D Technology
SENSIO Technologies has signed an agreement with Videotron, an integrated communications company in Quebec that plans to launch a 3D content offering this December. The cable-TV distributor will utilize SENSIO 3D technology to deliver the 3D content to consumers.
“Our mission is to provide the best possible experience to all our customers,” says Robert Dépatie, President and CEO of Videotron. “SENSIO 3D technology is the best available in terms of image quality, immersion, and comfort for viewers. It’s also a real pleasure to be doing business with another Canadian company, from our home province of Quebec to boot.”
For 3DTVs, programming will be offered in the SENSIO 3D format. SENSIO 3D technology enables broadcasting of 3D content over the conventional 2D infrastructure via cable, satellite, or IPTV, while also providing for common frame-compatible formats. SENSIO 3D delivers “visually lossless” 3D images, which are faithful to the originally captured images. For non 3D-enabled TVs, SENSIO technology will also enable anaglyph-based 3D.
Videotron plans to offer a variety of 3D content including movies via video-on-demand, sporting events, and concerts.
“We are very proud that our first agreement with a cable broadcaster is with a Canadian company,” says Nicholas Routhier, President and CEO of SENSIO. “Videotron wants to offer 3D programming of a better visual quality and our aim is to enable our partners to supply an improved customer experience. It’s a real meeting of visions.”
