"This significant milestone will expand 3doo's digital 3-D platform reach to millions of LG TV viewers in 87 countries, including major markets such as the U.S., Canada, India and the United Kingdom – and for the first time in the large 3-D markets of China, South Korea and Japan," stated Michael Stougiannos, Chief Executive Officer of 3doo, Inc. "3doo is more strongly committed than ever to building its position as a global leader in 3-D media and entertainment, and to disrupting the 3-D film distribution industry worldwide."
"We are very proud that the development team enabled one more leading Smart TV platform under LG's exacting Quality Assurance standards," said Ingo Nadler, Chief Technology Officer of 3doo, Inc. "With a few simple clicks, the 3doo Player App can be downloaded and installed to quickly and easily connect millions of LG TV viewers around the world to stunning 3-D content from producers around the world."
The 3doo Player App is also available pre-installed on millions of Panasonic's 2012 and 2013 VIERA 3-D TVs globally, placing the 3doo platform alongside other premium entertainment services such as YouTube, Netflix, Amazon Instant Video and Hulu.
3doo is the only global platform that directly connects content providers, electronic manufacturers, movie studios, and television stations with the rapidly expanding mass market of the 3-D end users around the world in an open marketplace.
"The home entertainment industry has responded to the success of 3-D movies with a wide array of 3-D products, but still confronts major problems such as the lack of sufficient available 3-D content; the need of 3-D content producers to access the necessary distribution infrastructure; and the inability of end users to access quality 3-D content," stated Stougiannos. "3doo is the only global platform that successfully addresses all of these content issues."
3doo plans to engage all owners of 3-D Smart TVs, 3-D smart phones, tablets and mobile devices of all relevant brands worldwide. 3doo is currently in negotiations with other leading global television and mobile device manufacturers, as well as established content providers to vastly expand its user base to a potential customer base of 60 million 3-D TV units worldwide in Q2 2013, and more than 350 million by 2015, based on recent Display Search data.
3doo is also introducing 3-D commercials and premium TV advertising formats into user living rooms worldwide, creating a new sector for the global advertising industry, as well as its partners and producers.
