LG, Youtube partner to bring 3D experience to mobile devices
By STANDARD REPORTER
LG Electronics (LG) and YouTube have announced a partnership to provide a unique 3D mobile experience to users.
LG’s upcoming Android-powered premium smartphones will enable users not only to capture and view 3D videos without glasses, but also to upload and share them instantly with others via YouTube.
"The Optimus 3D is LG’s newest flagship smartphone. It is our answer to two major pain points of the current 3D experience — limited mobility and specialised glasses. Furthermore, our partnership with YouTube will ensure that our customers can easily generate and access ample 3D content," said Dr Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
The new partnership is part of a broader push into 3D entertainment by LG and the world’s largest online video community.
YouTube and LG collaborated to enable the delivery and sharing of 3D video onto mobile devices in a way that makes it simple and easy for consumers.
"3D technology has traditionally been reserved for the major Hollywood movie studios," said Francsico Varela, Head of YouTube Platform Partnerships.
"With the new LG Optimus 3D anyone anywhere in the world can shoot 3D videos, upload them to YouTube and share them with their friends. We’re excited to see the creative videos our community captures and shares with this new technology."
