As a world beyond HD begins to come into focus, the satellite broadcasting sector already is looking for the next generation of HD entertainment, and with early success in theater demonstrations, 3D HD is moving toward becoming a commercial reality. Find out about the technology behind the market, the revenue potential and how close are we to seeing 3D TV being deployed in major markets across the globe?
Find out the answers to these questions in a webinar brought to by the editorial team of Via Satellite
Other questions that will be addressed by some of the industry’s top executives:
- What are the prospects for 3D HD in the digital cinema market?
- How much will it cost to deploy 3D services? How can existing infrastructure be used to roll out 3D entertainment offerings?
- BSkyB plans to launch a 3D TV channel in 2010. What impact will this have on the market?
- With HDTV penetration still relatively low, how soon can 3D TV realistically make an impact, even in major markets such as the United States and Europe?
- Are satellite players uniquely positioned to offer these services and capture a large share of the potential revenue?
