Johannesburg - Since its inception, the uptake of 3D technology and its complimentary products and services has been increasingly swift the world over.
In keeping with advances, Samsung Electronics launched their 3D Video-On-Demand (VOD) service in April 2011 for their range of Smart TVs, and has since seen the service’s popularity skyrocket with the millionth milestone in content views worldwide already being passed.
Available locally, the 3D VOD service allows consumers to access 3D content free and online from Samsung Smart TVs. Consumers have access to 28 types of free 3D content including films, music videos, children’s classics, documentaries and trailers from partner Dreamworks and by the end of 2011, 70 free 3D videos will be available through the ‘Explore 3D’ App.
Corrie Labuschagne, product and marketing manager for Smart TVs at Samsung Electronics South Africa states; “The popularity of the 3D VOD service on our Smart TVs is testament to the quality viewing experience and content we offer customers. From our unique 3D colour technology to our 3D glasses with Bluetooth connectivity, we are committed to giving viewers the most immersive 3D experience possible. With more free 3D content to come, we will continue to develop our Smart TV offering to bring more excitement of 3D to the Smart TV platform ensuring more consumers access 3D content for free and on-demand”.
To access Samsung’s video-on-demand service, consumers with 3D Smart TVs simply need to download the ‘Explore 3D’ App from Samsung Apps, the first and biggest App store available for TVs.
