SENSIO Launches a New Universally Compatible Version of its Award-Winning SENSIO Hi-Fi 3D Format

The entire 3DGO!™ movie library will be re-encoded in the new format

MONTREAL, QUEBEC--(Marketwired - March 4, 2015) - SENSIO Technologies Inc. ("SENSIO" or the "Company") (TSX VENTURE:SIO) announced today that it has developed a new version of its award-winning SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D format which is compatible with the side-by-side decoders found in the vast majority of 3D devices available on the market. These 3D devices namely include 3DTVs, 3D digital receivers used by cable companies and other service providers, desktop computers and laptops, as well as virtual reality headsets. The new format is also compatible with the SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D decoder, offering its users better quality than with conventional side-by-side decoders.

Another important benefit of the new encoding is its improved compressibility when used in conjunction with conventional video encoders like MPEG2, MPEG4 and HEVC. As a result, 3D content can be distributed at a lower bitrate without compromising image quality. In the coming weeks, SENSIO will be converting its entire 3DGO! movie library to the new format, which will make the service compatible with the vast majority of 3D devices on the market and provide a new lower bitrate profile to improve the robustness of the service under limited or highly variable bandwidth conditions. When new movies will be added to the 3DGO! library in the future, they will also be encoded in the new format.

"Our ambition with 3DGO! is to become the world's largest distributor of 3D content, and to achieve this, it was necessary to broaden the compatibility of our service to include the largest number of 3D devices possible," said Nicholas Routhier, SENSIO's President and CEO. "This new version of the SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D format reflects that ambition and it constitutes a real feat by our engineering team. With this new version we are able to extend 3DGO!'s compatibility to the vast majority of devices on the market while reducing the bandwidth needed for content distribution and maintaining the quality differentiation of the SENSIO® Hi-Fi 3D decoder. Thanks to this new encoding, we have removed a major barrier to the adoption of our service, and we are excited about the possibilities for 3DGO!'s market expansion," Routhier added.
