SENSIO Puts SENSIO® 3D Technology and Expertise to Work for Videotron
"Our mission is to provide the best possible experience to all our customers," said Robert Dépatie, President and CEO of Videotron. "SENSIO® 3D technology is the best available in terms of image quality, immersion, and comfort for viewers. It's also a real pleasure to be doing business with another Canadian company, from our home province of Quebec to boot."
For 3DTVs, programming will be offered in the SENSIO® 3D format. SENSIO® 3D technology enables broadcasting of 3D content over the conventional 2D infrastructure via cable, satellite, or IPTV, while providing superior quality to common frame-compatible formats. SENSIO® 3D delivers "visually lossless" 3D images, which are so faithful to the originally captured images that the difference is imperceptible to the eye of the viewer. For non 3D-enabled TVs, SENSIO's know-how enables the best-quality anaglyph (viewed through the red-and-cyan glasses), which provides an unrivalled level of viewing comfort. Through these technologies, Videotron's customers will be able to view diversified 3D content including movies via video-on-demand, sporting events, and concerts.
"We are very proud that our first agreement with a cable broadcaster is with a Canadian company," said Nicholas Routhier, President and CEO of SENSIO. "Videotron wants to offer 3D programming of a better visual quality and our aim is to enable our partners to supply an improved customer experience. It's a real meeting of visions."
