Samsung Smart TV gets 3D VOD Channel in Japan

Smart TVs are certainly here to stay and one of the firms that has most embraced Smart TV is Samsung. Samsung has a wide range of Smart TV offerings and the company has announced a new service for its Smart TVs in Japan.

Samsung has unveiled the industry's first 3D VOD channel just for its Smart TV users. The 3D content offered on the channel is free for the TV user and will offer things like movie trailers from DreamWorks, 3D concerts, and more.

The 3D content on the channel will include content from a 3D content creator specialist firm called Weeks, Infant Bikahyiui 3D World for teaching English to kids, and a bunch of classic 3D fairy tails. There are more than 20 3D videos on the channel right now for the user to view.

Samsung visual display unit visual strategy and marketing director Lee Sang, Managing Director, said, "Samsung Electronics [offers] its customers a variety of 3D content, easier way to experience the multifaceted [3D content], now the industry's first 3D VOD service to start. We [offer the] VOD service [and] Continue to expand the content available through Samsung TV content with technology leadership and to strengthen competitiveness."

Samsung says that it will add over 50 more pieces of 3D content during the first half of 2011. The service will later roll out to the US and then to Europe as well. An exact launch date for other countries is not offered.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
