Spatial View Inc., a pioneer in 3D content delivery and auto-stereoscopic display technologies, and Eagle Rock Entertainment, an independent producer, publisher, and distributor of music programming, today announced they have partnered for the 3D digital distribution of Peter Gabriel’s New Blood Live in London In 3Dimensions concert. The New Blood Live in London concert film, shot by Eagle Rock Entertainment, will be available for download for the iPhone 4/4S from Spatial View’s 3DeeCentral site, the leading online store for independent and pro-labeled 3D content.
“It was a buzz seeing the way Spatial View turned something as small as the iPhone into a magical box: a bona-fide 3D device. Capturing our own New Blood Live show in not one, not two, but three dimensions was no easy job,” said Peter Gabriel. “I’m very pleased the way Eagle Rock and all the creative team managed to record the essence of the concert, a concert experience that can now be shared by many more people through Spatial View’s cool technology.”
New Blood Live in London was held at London’s iconic Hammersmith Apollo on March 23, 2011, as Rock and Roll Hall of Fame artist Peter Gabriel performed a collection of orchestral reinterpretations of songs captured for the first time in 3D. Shooting New Blood Live in London in 3D involved a crew armed with 3D cameras to capture the wraparound experience. Produced by Eagle Rock production company EMP and directed by Blue Leach, the concert film is a visual feast with the drama of a 46-piece orchestra, conducted by the spirited and renowned Ben Foster.
“One of the main barriers to 3D going mainstream is the lack of compelling 3D content,” says Al Lopez, COO, Spatial View. “The addition of the New Blood Live in London in 3Dimensions concert to the 3DeeCentral online store is evidence of Spatial View’s commitment to create a central location. We are thrilled to partner with Peter Gabriel and Eagle Rock on this project.”
Spatial View will also sell a limited edition Peter Gabriel New Blood Live in London branded 3DeeSlide, an iPhone 4/4S accessory that lets people watch 3D content, glasses-free. The 3DeeSlide will be available for purchase from www.3deecentral.com/newblood for $USD34.99. New Blood Live in London concert film and tracks will be available from 3DeeCentral on 3D-enabled Android devices and Internet-connected 3D TVs in December.
