H.264 4:2:2 10-bit compression used in simultaneous delivery to a Parisian cinema and on the new Orange 3D channel

GlobeCast provided a full HD 3D solution last Wednesday 26 May for the live broadcast of the much-anticipated final of French reality TV show Nouvelle Star. Two hundred fifty VIPs invited by broadcaster M6 to a cinema in Paris, as well as the subscribers to Orange’s experimental 3D channel with access to a 3D television, were treated to a perfect rendering of the depth, colors and light effects of the set.
This contribution solution, developed in partnership with ATEME, uses H264 4:2:2 10-bit compression and allows for delivery of full 3D stereoscopic images via satellite or fiber while preserving optimal image quality. The dual streaming technology allows for each image (left and right) to retain its full resolution (1920×1080), in contrast to « side-by-side » solutions.

GlobeCast is concentrating its efforts on providing universal 3D contribution to ensure the delivery of live sporting events and shows from anywhere in the world.
