VOD service has entered the beta-testing phase, the last step prior to the official launch of the service. After months of developments and fine tuning, 3DGO! is now ready to be tested in the field with a selected group of 3DTV owners to validate the end-to-end experience, from user registration to 3D content viewing. A successful beta-testing phase will trigger the official launch of the service which is expected before the end of the calendar year.
“After months of hard work and development, we are thrilled to begin the first field-trial of the service,” said Nicholas Routhier, President and CEO at SENSIO. “Now that our DRM supported playback solution is up and running, it is time to let real users in the field experiment with 3DGO!. During the next month, they will be testing all aspects of the service to make sure that we have a smooth and easy-to-use service that meets the highest end-user expectations. When we officially launch the service, 3DGO! will be ready for primetime and we are eagerly anticipating to get this exciting and innovative service to the market.”
