LiveU and Panasonic Make Live HD 3D Portable1
LiveU, which specializes in mobile broadcasting tools, has announced that it will demonstrate HD 3D live mobile broadcasts at IBC (the International Broadcasting Convention) in Amsterdam from September 9 to 13.
Panasonic is collaborating with LiveU on the technology, which will work over cellular networks, and is targeted at news, sports, music, corporate sponsorship, and high-profile events.
The product combines a Panasonic AG-3DA1 camera, an HD 3D pro camcorder with integrated twin lenses, with LiveU’s video uplink system.
"We’re excited to collaborate with the industry giant Panasonic to bring the latest technological innovation in the cellular video uplink space," says Samuel Wasserman, LiveU’s CEO. "With the growing trend of 3D TV and talk of 3D broadcast channels, our bonded HD mobile solution offers a highly cost-effective 3D alternative to expensive satellite systems. We believe that 3D will be part of broadcasters’ standard equipment in the coming years."

"The LiveU collaboration demonstrates the high-quality, robust capability of mobile technology for 3D TV. With the London Olympics coming up and other major events, there is growing demand for HD 3D live mobile broadcasts," says Takashi Uchida, marketing general manager for Panasonic AVC System Europe.
