3D video coverage of E3 Expo will feature exclusive videos and interviews from the trade show floor
For the first time ever, GamerLive.TV will broadcast 3D video coverage of the E3 Expo, the premier game trade show in the U.S., to gamers and tech enthusiasts around the world. The high-quality, stereoscopic 3D video will be viewable via the YouTube video player for users with NVIDIA® 3D Vision™ PCs.
E3 video footage will be available for free on GamerLive.TV, and on GamerLive.TV’s YouTube 3D channel. In addition, NVIDIA will showcase the videos.
From today through June 9, GamerLive.TV will issue over 50 high-quality 3D videos of the latest E3 news – including game launches, booth demos, 3D game captures, Expo events, and VIP parties. It will also post exclusive interviews with the world’s top game developers, including representatives from Activision, Electronic Arts, Sega, THQ, Ubisoft, Sega, Disney and Capcom as well as celebrity interviews with stars such as ER and Falling Skies’ Noah Wyle, Lost’s Harold Perrineau, Orlando Magic center Dwight Howard, wrestling great Hulk Hogan, the producers of Disney and Pixar’s Cars 2 Movie and Video Game and many more.
“This gives gamers and tech enthusiasts a whole new way to experience the E3 game show with insider’s access and a immersive 3D experience,” said John Gaudiosi, Editor-in-Chief of GamerLive.TV. “With 3D, viewers will almost feel like they are there at the show.”
The annual E3 Expo trade show will be held from June 7-9, 2011, at the Los Angeles Convention Center. Previously open only to the members of the video game industry and press, the E3 Expo experience is now accessible to the general public through GamerLive.TV’s exclusive 3D video coverage.
3D coverage of E3 can be seen with a wide array of supported 3D viewing options on YouTube, including red-blue anaglyph and side-by-side format. But the highest quality visual experience, with the best color and fidelity, will be available only to PC users with NVIDIA 3D Vision advanced, active-shutter glasses.
“GamerLive.TV’s E3 coverage will provide an amazing, one-of-a-kind experience for NVIDIA 3D Vision users,” said Andrew Fear, senior product manager of 3D Vision at NVIDIA. “For the first time, 3D Vision PC users will be able to experience E3 with theater-quality, high-resolution 3D.”
Last week, NVIDIA announced YouTube support for 3D Vision, which enables users to view thousands of existing YouTube 3D videos in rich, high-quality stereoscopic 3D on their NVIDIA 3D Vision PCs and notebooks. To view YouTube 3D videos, an NVIDIA 3D Vision-equipped PC or notebook and the latest NVIDIA GeForce® drivers (version 275 or above), are required, as well as Firefox (version 4 or above), which includes support for HTML5 video streaming. Users will also need to select the HTML5 viewing option when viewing a YouTube 3D video..
