Ultra-D TV will arrive at Covent Garden Walkabout Bar in time for the first-ever viewing of the Olympics in glasses-free 3D

PHILADELPHIA, July 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Stream TV Networks, Inc.™ (www.StreamTVNetworks.com) announced today that they choose London as the location of the first Ultra-D™ TV public viewing location in Europe. The Walkabout in Covent Garden at 11 Henrietta Street in London, will have installed the first ever Ultra-D display unit in the UK in time for the 2012 Summer Olympics, broadcasted live on the BBC, Sky and ESPN. Live 2D and with-glasses (stereoscopic) 3D broadcasts of the Olympic Games will be auto converted into the stunning 3D without glasses Ultra-D format in real-time, using the Ultra-D SeeCube™ Conversion Box. The viewing location will also host demos to highlight the Ultra-D technology's compatibility with the iPad®, iTunes®, Appstore® and the Apple TV®. Matthew Young, European representative for Stream TV Networks in the UK said: "We chose Walkabout for the first ever screen as it's well known as the best live sports venue in London."

The manager of the Covent Garden Walkabout Bar, Dal Jones, states that Ultra-D is "1000% better than anything else I have seen in 3D without glasses. I am very pleased and truly excited to be the first UK bar to be able to offer this to our customers."

Stream TV Networks is placing demo units at high traffic venues in metropolitan areas in the US, Europe, Taiwan and China to showcase the Ultra-D technology to consumer before products become available at retail. In the US, the first venue to showcase Ultra-D will be Blondies Sports® (www.blondiessports.com) in New York City located at 212 West 79th St., also in time for the 2012 Olympic Games.

Ultra-D enables the seamless autoconversion of 2D and 3D with glasses content into autostereoscopic (glasses-free) 3D in real-time, so that virtually every kind of video feed can be viewed in 3d without glasses. The Ultra-D technology has also been optimized for the iOS® and Android® operating systems for enhanced connectivity to peripheral devices. 

Additional consumer viewing locations for Ultra-D™ technology will be announced in the coming weeks and will include additional venues in New York, Philadelphia, London and various locations throughout China.

"Ultra-D is the first 3D without glasses solution that has been able to eliminate viewing angles and offer the high quality, glasses-free 3D experience we've all been waiting for," says Matt Young for Stream TV Networks. He adds, "Being able to offer this in time for the Olympics just adds to the viewing experience and enjoyment of the games being in London."
