"After 10 years of investment, development and commitment, we are extremely happy to be rewarded in this way, and that our format has been recognized by a standards organization. Our technology has reached the necessary level of maturity to become a standard, and its quality, reliability and robustness have been assessed and certified by a recognized global organization. We are confident that this certification will have a positive impact on manufacturers, and that it will enable us to facilitate and accelerate the integration of our technology into products for the consumer market", explained Nicholas Routhier, President and CEO of SENSIO.
In 2008, a process to add a 3D video specification to DVD was launched. In order to collect information about the various 3D methods and technologies available, a wide appeal was done. Several companies submitted their technology to be standardized for DVD. At the end of the assessment, the only format to be kept and included in the DVD standard is SENSIO® 3D, as this was the only one to satisfy the criteria set out.
With this standardization, SENSIO has come closer to its aim of becoming the global 3D standard for the distribution of 3D content in the consumer market and will probably boost soon the content available in the SENSIO® 3D format, adding films to its already existing library.
Founded in 1999, SENSIO, headquartered in Montreal, Canada, develops and markets forward-looking stereoscopic technologies designed to offer the most advanced and immersive cinematographic experience available. Its flagship technology, SENSIO®3D, allows the high-quality distribution of 3D content through conventional 2D channels and playback on any display device, including plasma TVs, HDTV and glass-free 3D displays. Working with major Hollywood studios and large format 3D film producers, SENSIO has built up one of the world's largest libraries of 3D movies for the home entertainment market.
