SENSIO Technologies Inc. (“SENSIO”) (TSX-V: SIO) today announced that it is collaborating with Teranex Systems, Inc. (“Teranex”) at the 2010 National Association of Broadcasters (“NAB”) Show to demonstrate integration of the SENSIO® 3D Encoder and Decoder IP Cores within the Teranex VC100 Universal Frame Synchronizer and Format Converter.
The technology integration, on display at the Teranex booth (N1115), will showcase how easily SENSIO’s professional-quality 3D technology can be incorporated into best-of-breed broadcast products to simplify broadcasters’ move into 3D broadcasting on current and future infrastructures.
“SENSIO’s reputation for innovation in 3D technologies is in line with our reputation for innovation in image processing, making this partnership a natural fit,” said Mike Poirier, General Manager of Teranex “Teranex was a key player in the transition from SD to HD, and moving on to 3D – the next wave of technological innovation – is a natural evolution for us. Our broadcast customers are looking for this technology, and we look forward to highlighting this exciting 3D solution at the 2010 NAB Show.”
Professional-quality 3D technology to work with best-of-breed broadcast products
The SENSIO® 3D technology is a professional grade frame-compatible stereoscopic compression technology. The SENSIO 3D encoder combines two streams, coming from any video source, into a single stream that can be transmitted throughout the existing broadcasting infrastructure for visually lossless encoding that yields outstanding results. SENSIO’s 3D decoder IP core runs efficiently on Teranex’s VC100 platform, taking advantage of its real-time processing technology. The dual-channel VC100 architecture is ideally suited to handle left and right eye processing and this capability enables broadcast of high-quality 3D programming on today’s 1.485 Gb/s infrastructures.
Combined solution delivers immersive 3D experience – today and into future
“We are pleased that Teranex has joined the growing number of broadcast vendors that are turning to SENSIO for professional, high-quality 3D solutions,” said SENSIO President and CEO Nicholas Routhier. “With ready access to our future-proof 3D technology, broadcasters can deliver an immersive 3D experience today and leverage their investment in conjunction with the 3D broadcasting infrastructure of the future.”
During an event at Bally’s Hotel for the duration of the NAB show, SENSIO will showcase its full line of 3D digital compression, decompression, and display-formatting technologies. A complete model integrating SENSIO technology within an live 3D broadcast chain will be on display at this event, which is open by appointment only.
