AccessIT preps movie theaters for 3-D broadcasts
Empty3-D deployer Access Integrated Technologies is beginning a rollout of technology designed to enable the live broadcast to movie theaters of such events as sports and concerts in 2-D and 3-D formats.
Deployment is set to begin immediately on the first 50 CineLive systems, which will include installation in such key markets as New York, Los Angeles and Chicago. AccessIT expects to have at least 150 in place by year's end.
AccessIT's alternative content division, the Bigger Picture, is expected to manage the distribution of many of the 2-D and 3-D live events enabled by the network. Bigger Picture president Jonathan Dern expects the first live broadcast to occur in the summer.
"It is very clear that 3-D is here to stay. We believe the public will be very excited about being able to see really great live events in 3-D," Dern said.
CineLive was developed in conjunction with International Datacasting and Sensio Technologies. (partialdiff)
