SENSIO Technologies have signed a deal with National Geographic to add 3D documentary programming to the forthcoming 3DGO! rental service.
“We are pleased by this association with a pioneer in the 3D industry, and to have the opportunity to make our 3D content available to consumers through this unique high-quality 3D platform”, said Lisa Truitt, President at National Geographic Cinema Ventures. “This is an exciting time for 3D and consumers are craving for more content to watch at home. We believe 3DGO! will be greatly attractive for consumers looking for high-quality 3D content, and we are thrilled to be taking part of it.”
National Geographic represent a range of 3D titles such as Sea Monsters 3D, U23D and Meerkats 3D. The company has also produced a 3D episode of its own Alien Deep series.
“This association is a sign of mutual trust and respect, reflecting National Geographic and SENSIO’s dedication to provide high-quality material both technically and creatively,” said Richard LaBerge, SENSIO executive vice-president and CMO. “We expect this multi-year agreement with this important organization to be prolific and successful, and we are really excited to move another step toward our goal to answer consumers’ need for diversified 3D content. With another prestigious leader of the movie and TV industry putting its trust in our service, we are well on our way to becoming the preferred destination for 3D VOD content.”
Last week, SENSIO announced a deal with Anchor Bay to license the VoD rights to 3D films like Bait 3D and Piranha 3D. The 3DGO! connected TV app will launch in America this autumn. It is based on a transactional model which will offer consumers instant access to a wide 3D library.
