TiVo users to get 3D over the Internet

By

Hybrid Television Services - the Australian distributor of the TiVo set top box and the creator of the CASPA service that delivers video on demand over the Internet to TiVos - has signed an agreement with DDD Group plc to offer DDD's 3D content via CASPA.

According to Hybrid TV, "This content agreement marks the first 3D VoD arrangement of its kind in the Southern Hemisphere."

CASPA will initially offer DDD's Yabazam 3D animations and short films and later "a diverse range of 3D content from DDD's Yabazam catalogue, featuring everything from animation and extreme sports, to documentaries, indie shorts, comedy and music videos."

DDD's Yabazam content will be available for download via CASPA through TiVo on a pay-per view basis with free trailers at prices from $2.95 to $6.95. Content can be viewed as many times as the viewer wishes for 48 hours after the download commences.

The DDD Yabazam 3D content will add to the existing CASPA portfolio of more than 500 on-demand movies, 2000+ hrs of TV shows, music videos, artist interviews, concerts and more.

Hybrid TV has just added movies from NBC Universal International Television Distribution, Icon Film Distribution and Umbrella Entertainment to the CASPA inventory.

According to Hybrid TV, "DDD, also known as Dynamic Digital Depth, is transforming the viewing experience with applications for 3D displays. Its patented technologies enable: 3D viewing with and without glasses; simple integration of computer games applications with 3D displays; supply of 3D content through 2D to 3D conversion; and 3D transmission over existing networks."

Nearly every business wants to leverage the latest in digital offerings to remain competitive in their respective markets and to provide support for fast and ever-increasing demands for data capacity. 400G is the answer.

Initial challenges are associated with supporting such project and upgrades to fulfil the promise of higher-capacity transport.

The foundation of optical networking infrastructure includes coherent optical transceivers and digital signal processing (DSP), mux/demux, ROADM, and optical amplifiers, all of which must be able to support 400G capacity.

With today’s proprietary power-hungry and high cost transceivers and DSP, how is migration to 400G networks going to be a viable option?

PacketLight's next-generation standardised solutions may be the answer. Click below to read the full article.
