LOS ANGELES, Oct. 4, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Stream TV Networks, Inc.™, innovators of glasses-free Ultra-D™ 3D technology, has been granted the Pioneer Award from the 3D Film Festival for executing the world's first 3D without glasses live concert presentation.
The festival, which features independent movies filmed in cutting-edge 3D, concluded with a performance by Quincy Jones and the Global Gumbo All-Stars that Stream TV Networks showcased live for viewers in stunning autostereoscopic 3D from the Marriott Mixing Room in Los Angeles. This milestone marks the first concert ever to be shown live in 3D without glasses. High definition 3D cameras photographed the event, sending a video feed to Stream TV Network's proprietary SeeCube™ which converted the show in real-time to glasses-free 3D, much to the delight of hundreds of fans on site at the L.A. Live venue.
Stream TV Networks was one of four Pioneer Award winners at this year's 3D Film Festival alongside other innovators within the industry.
Stream TV Networks' Ultra-D technology uses the disparity between images to produce a high resolution output. This allows for stunning 3D without viewing angles or distortion. Consumers can use the bundled SeeCube Media Center Style Auto Conversion Set Top Box to convert any type of source content into 3D without glasses – Cable and Satellite TV Channels, Blu-ray®, Xbox®, iTunes®, Apple TV®, Google TV®, YouTube®, Netflix® and other feeds.
Earlier this month Stream TV Networks announced the development of a 2kx4k 3D without glasses TV dubbed the Ultra-D 2160p. Until now, current 2kx4k TVs and devices could not reach the full potential of these advanced panels because there is no native 4k content available for consumer use. But, with the introduction of the Ultra-D 2160p, 3D without glasses pushes ahead of 2D and 3D with glasses devices in terms of high resolution content.
"We are thrilled to be recognized by the 3D Film Festival as one of the recipients of the 2012 Pioneer Award," said Mathu Rajan, CEO of Stream TV Networks. "This recognition is yet another validation for the Ultra-D technology becoming the standard in 3D without glasses technology worldwide."
