SES World Skies test a 3D 'clarion call'

Anyone interested in the future of 3D television--including cable operators--should be interested in a series of trials planned for this spring by SES World Skies.

Eight major 3D components--content production, formatting, encoding, uplinking and transmission, headend reception, network distribution and display--will be tested using SES World Skies teleports in Vernon Valley, N.J. and Manassas, Va.

This is not strictly a satellite test but something for broadcasters, programmers, TV makers and technology providers and a "clarion call to anyone doing 3D TV," Brian McGuirk, SES World Skies vice president said.
