Continuing MarketSaw's NAB 2008 coverage, 3ality hosted a live 3D stream of the hit game show "Deal Or No Deal" today:
"The event was a live 3D feed, sent in a single stream via an existing broadcast infrastructure through a satellite transmission, to the NAB "Content Theater," a state-of-the-art digital screening room featuring RealD 3D's technology where top Hollywood filmmakers and executives reveal how they used new technologies to produce their latest content."
"We are thrilled to have partnered with 3ality Digital and to share their excitement and enthusiasm for the 3D format that will change how home entertainment is experienced," said Mandel and St. John in a joint statement. "3ality Digital is taking 3D to another dimension and it's changed all the things I used to believe about 3D," continued Mandel. St. John added: "As a producer I'm completely blown away by the cameras' ability to change depth while shooting. Today's event totally broke through a wall and now allows viewers to be in the game, not just watching it."
"The debut of our groundbreaking technology today displayed the rapid development of 3ality's advanced image capture and transmission capabilities for live 3D entertainment and sports," stated 3ality Digital CEO Sandy Climan.
