Sensio and Sagem Communications Showcase a 3D Digital Terminal at IBC at Booth 4.A080
AMSTERDAM, Netherlands, September 11, 2009 – SENSIO Technologies Inc. (“SENSIO”) (TSX Venture Exchange Inc.: SIO), inventor of the SENSIO® 3D technology, and Sagem Communications have joined forces to premier a new 3D video solution at IBC (International Broadcasting Convention). Sagem Communications’ digital set-top box, with integrated SENSIO® 3D technology, will enable consumers to view 3D content at home in full HD. The Demo at Sagem Communications’ booth (4.A080) is a first step towards commercial availability of the product planned for 2010.
Thanks to this integrated solution, service providers will soon be able to reach all subscribers, equipped with 3DTVs or not, via one and unique signal, regardless of the type of broadcast network. Since the set-top box is agnostic to any type of 3D display technology implemented within TVs, it can support any type of 2D or 3D TVs thus allowing service providers to easily migrate from 2D to 3D services. Furthermore, service providers will not require duplicating the broadcast of content in order to address various subscriber TV sets. All that will be required is to broadcast the content in 3D over their existing network while the set-top box processes the incoming signal and adapts it to the type of TV which is connected to it.
To find out more about our 3D solution, please join us at booth 4.A080 at IBC or contact any of the personnel listed below.
