ShenZen TV Shows First 3D-TV AVS Broadcast at ICIF in ChinaASSIMILATE and Telairity Partner to Offer 3DTV Technology Solution (May 20, 2010)
At the China International Cultural Industry Fair (ICIF), May 14 to 17, and for the first time in China, the ShenZen Media Group featured 3D TV in real time on the China video standard known as AVS. This was made possible by ASSIMILATE(tm) and Telairity(tm), who have partnered to offer broadcasters a streamlined, real-time solution for delivery of 3D-TV productions with high-quality imagery to viewing audiences using the China AVS standard.
At NAB 2010 in Las Vegas, NV, ASSIMILATE and Telairity teamed to offer the first stereo broadcast of an h.264 encoded stream, and now did so again at ICIF with ShenZen TV showing the first broadcast of an AVS stereo stream. A stereo source was uplinked to stereo displays in the ICIF booth, operating like an actual broadcast.
ASSIMILATE exclusively offers the 3ality 3Play Pro that works seamlessly with Telairity's real-time AVS HD Encoder. The combination of ASSIMILATE, 3ality, and Telairity technologies allow for the distribution, content collaboration and remote approvals, and provide a low-cost, high-quality broadcast delivery platform for 3DTV in AVS or H.264 . The Telairity AVS Encoder, based on Telairity's exclusive hardware and software encoding technology, offers the clearest and best quality 3D and HD/SD imagery to viewers.
