MONTREAL, QUEBEC -- (Marketwire) -- 01/08/13 -- SENSIO Technologies Inc. (SENSIO) (TSX VENTURE:SIO) today announced an agreement with VIZIO, Inc. ("VIZIO"), America's #1 large size flat panel HDTV Company, to add 3DGO!(TM) as part of their expanding line-up of new apps for its award winning connected CE platform, VIZIO Internet Apps(TM) on Theatre 3D® Smart TV models. 3DGO! is a dedicated 3D transactional VOD service that offers the largest selection of high-quality 3D content, such as Hollywood blockbusters, must-see documentaries and alternative content, to consumers whose 3DTVs support the SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D technology.
After months of development and testing, 3DGO! is now ready to be made available to most existing and new upcoming VIZIO Theater 3D Smart TV owners. They will simply need to download the 3DGO! application and register their TV to immediately start enjoying a great library of 3D content without needing to buy extra equipment or subscribe to a service. SENSIO and VIZIO have also agreed to collaborate in certain marketing initiatives to promote the service to Theater 3D Smart TV owners.
"In the last years, VIZIO has been our #1 partner in the CE market and it was totally natural to launch our new and exciting 3DGO! VOD service with them," states Nicholas Routhier President and Chief Executive Officer. "VIZIO has a far-reaching distribution channel which will give great visibility to the 3DGO! store in its early days. With their current install-base of smart 3DTVs in the US and impressive connectivity rate, VIZIO offers 3DGO! an incredible platform to reach a critical mass of 3D enthusiasts ready to enjoy high-quality 3D VOD. After years of collaboration, we are very excited at the prospect of working with VIZIO to bring added-value content to their 3DTVs and revolutionize the way people enjoy 3D in the home."
"We are always on the lookout for new innovative apps to complement our Smart TV lineup and 3DGO! certainly fits this description" said Matthew McRae, VP of Products at VIZIO. "3DGO! represents the perfect combination of connectivity and 3D, two areas we are committed to. For years, we've been supporters of the high-quality SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D format and of SENSIO's continued efforts to bringing a user-friendly 3D consumer experience. We are very happy to work with SENSIO to offer this new service on the VIZIO Internet Apps(TM) platform and to bring the best of 3D entertainment to our customers."
3DGO! is the world's first dedicated 3D VOD service offering a wide variety of content, including Hollywood studio titles, to 3DTV owners in the US. The application offers consumers quick and easy access to a wide 3D library, which SENSIO commits to continue developing. Neither subscription nor additional equipment is required making it a simple, inexpensive and ideal way to watch 3D in the home. 3DGO! uses the award-winning SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D technology, a unique frame-compatible technology providing high-fidelity stereoscopic images using conventional 2D channels.
