Vimond Media Solutions has announced support for 3D streaming through its over-the-top (OTT) platform and its suite of applications, giving broadcasters the ability to augment their 2D services with 3D content viewable on connected Blu-ray consoles, connected TVs, desktop computers, tablets, and other mobile devices.
With Vimond's products, OTT service publishers can now publish the same service efficiently and cost-effectively on many networks and formats at the same time, reducing the need for parallel setups and delivery chains. Vimond's unique video player based on Microsoft's Silverlight technology supports dual 2D and 3D display capabilities.
In addition, Vimond has announced plans to enhance its client applications so that menu structures, buttons, modules, and other interactive elements fit uniformly with the 3D transmission. In this way, broadcasters and media owners will have the reassurance that they can easily and quickly adapt their services to support new 3D connected-TV models or portable viewing devices as they are launched.
