Scheduled for Fall 2014, the initial deployment will target 13 countries in Europe, North America and South America. SENSIO will adapt the rate and extent of 3DGO!'s deployment to each region based on the potential benefits expected. The first launch is planned for the U.S. in October 2014, followed by the other 12 countries listed in the agreement as of December 2014. SENSIO then plans to continue with targeted deployment in other parts of the world starting in 2015. The 3DGO! application will be made available on LG's NetCast and webOS platforms.
LG is the world's biggest manufacturer of 3D TVs based on FPR technology (using polarized glasses such as those used in theatres) and it has one of the biggest sales volumes in the market.
"We are proud to be able to count on such an important partner as LG for our international expansion," said Nicholas Routhier, President and CEO of SENSIO. "LG is undoubtedly the most vocal and committed supporter of 3D at home, and we are very excited to be able to work with them on the proliferation of this exceptional experience. 3DGO! fits in perfectly with LG's strategy to promote the adoption and sale of its 3D TVs, by offering a wealth of content that includes hit movies and quality documentaries. Through this partnership, we will benefit from LG's impressive international sales volume, especially in Europe which generates roughly 30% of global unit sales volumes of 3D TVs from all CE manufacturers according to DisplaySearch. With today's agreement, SENSIO can confidently move forward with its international expansion program."
