Sisvel Technology Will Show Live the 3DZ Tile Format at International CES 2013

Sisvel Technology (Booth South Hall 1 – 20818) will demonstrate how the 3DZ Tile Format revolutionizes 3D broadcasting, saving bandwidth and costs for broadcasters – while providing a glasses-free user experience.

3DZ Tile Format is a technology that enhances the performance of autostereoscopic displays. This is the latest exciting extension of the Tile Format which already offers users better definition than existing solutions, is backward compatible with 2D High Definition TV sets and offers significant advantages to broadcasters by using a single bandwidth-efficient stream. For a quick overview, click here.

The 3DZ Tile Format has been designed to simplify and to improve the performance of “glasses-free” 3D televisions. The current 3D devices require the generation of a large number of intermediate images or ‘views’ sent to a special TV panel. In order to generate the intermediate views, the TV set needs a depth map, namely a numeric representation of the depth of the scene. This map is normally produced within the TV set and requires complex software. Conversely, if the map is generated at the broadcaster’s end, more sophisticated and accurate algorithms can be used reducing the cost and the complexity of the receiver. The Tile Format exploits the bottom right empty space of the composite video frame to broadcast a depth map represented as a gray scale image. The 1080p full HD frame of the 3DZ Tile Format provides the necessary information to display 3D contents in an optimized way both on stereoscopic TV (with glasses) and on autostereoscopic TV (without glasses).

Sisvel Technology will also demonstrate Cropping Rectangle technology. This enables broadcasters to transmit 3D programs that can be viewed stereoscopically on 3D television sets and simultaneously in 2D format on full HD television sets without the need for simulcasting. The booth will also showcase partners using 3D Tile Format technology: local, national and international broadcasters (Quartarete, 50canale, Europa7, VTV Broadcom, CNTV 3D channel, SES), industry partners (Vestel, Sim2, Antik Technology, Utah Scientific, CVE, BLT, Triaxes, Elecard, Dimenco, Gammared, Allied Telesis) and 3D content producers.

SIM2, one of the leading producers of high-end 3D video projectors, will also participate in the Sisvel demonstrations at International CES. A specially constructed darkroom will demonstrate the high quality of 3D Tile Format reproduced by the Mico 150 video projector.

The American marketplace is rapidly embracing 3DTV and Sisvel Technology is working diligently to provide compelling solutions to broadcasters throughout the 3D entertainment ecosystem – from chipsets, TV and set-top box manufacturers to TV and IPTV broadcasters.

DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the massive amount of information associated with these devices. Ed presented sought out sessions at CloudEXPO Silicon Valley 2017 and CloudEXPO New York 2017. He is a regular contributor to Cloud Computing Journal.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
