WealthTV to Utilize the 3D Flypak™ to Broadcast Multiple Live Events for their Newly Debuted Linear 3D Channel, WealthTV 3D.
WealthTV 3D, the recently launched 24/7 3D network from WealthTV, commissioned the development of the world’s first 3D Flypak™ from TV Pro Gear, a leader in turnkey integration headquartered in Glendale, CA. WealthTV 3D will utilize this Flypak™ for a multitude of live events in 2012, including the recently announced WBC Lightweight title fight featuring the undefeated Chris Howard taking on the undefeated Arash Usnamee, live from Atlanta, GA.
“We’re dedicated to bringing the best possible 3D experience into the living room,” explains Robert Herring Sr., founder and CEO of WealthTV. “Live events such as boxing and concerts bring an added level of excitement to our 3D network. By utilizing the versatile and incredibly mobile Flypak™ that TV Pro Gear has designed, we have the flexibility to broadcast anything from larger live arena events to more intimate venues with the same great 3D quality.”
WealthTV 3D’s current programming lineup is designed to give the viewer the greatest overall 3D experience. From touching the peaks of the Andes to riding in the fastest Ferraris, WealthTV 3D heightens your senses to levels only otherwise experienced in person. With the addition of live events, WealthTV 3D takes another leap to becoming a leader in 3D television content.
“TV Pro Gear is employing several new 3D technologies in order to create the world’s first 3D Flypak™ for WealthTV,” states Andrew Maisner, President of TV Pro Gear. “The newly released Fiber Optic system and our patented all-in-one gig mounted Flypak™ frame gives WealthTV shorter set-up times and improved reliability at every live event.”
The Flypak™ is built around a multitude of Sony PMW-TD300 3D cameras, the latest in shoulder-mount designed 3D camcorders. The PMW-TD300 allows more mobility and flexibility in the way an event can be shot with the same 3D effect and picture quality of beam-splitter and side-by-side rigs used today.
WealthTV 3D is now launched on Roku’ s over 2.5 million connected boxes across the United States, along with all Google TV enabled devices. Additional launches via conventional cable and connected devices are coming soon.
