iPONT delivers the ‘iPORN' experience - no more Kleenex® for keeping those 3D glasses clean
iPONT International teams with Penthouse Digital Media Productions Inc. ("Penthouse") to demonstrate a glasses-free 3D breath-taking experience at MIPCOM
Cannes - 3 October 2011 iPONT International, an innovator and technology partner in the glasses-free 3D market, will be working with the content provider of Penthouse branded product, to demonstrate its glasses-free display screen product at the Penthouse booth located at C1.03. iPONT's glasses-free 3D ‘iPORN' experience with Penthouse's premium branded 3D adult content will set a new standard in realism for immersive adult 3D entertainment.
"Penthouse is the standard bearer for premium adult entertainment, high production values and the finest cinematography" said Matthew Young, director iPONT UK. "When Penthouse launched its 3D linear channel in Europe this year it was only going to be a matter of time before someone took it to the next level of realism. We are absolutely delighted working with Penthouse for the glasses-free 3D demonstration."
AT MIPCOM, iPONT will install a wide-angle 65" auto-stereoscopic (without-glasses) LCD screen with its proprietary 3D TV box, a device that streams real-time 3D broadcast content from a satellite receiver to the display, performing a ‘true' real-time stereo to auto-stereo conversion. Content from Penthouse 3D - the first pan European 3D formatted adult channel will be played through the receiver.
"The Penthouse brand and its production team continuously innovate by exhibiting its content via ground-breaking platforms worldwide," commented Marc Bell, Chief Executive Officer for FriendFinder Networks Inc. "Penthouse 3D has taken its content into high definition 3D in a manner unmatched by any other entertainment company and for MIPCOM, it is breaking new ground, yet again, with an ‘uber-realistic' glasses-free 3D broadcast that will mesmerise audiences."
With regard to the demonstration, Young continued: "Watching adult content with the use of 3D glasses, may limit the user's experience. To be able to watch adult content in 3D without glasses will give any viewer an added virtual-participation that brings the content to life in a more limitless environment.
