While at NAB this year, Alex Zambelli showed us 3D streaming with Smooth Streaming. NAB this year was all about 3D and we had several announcements of our own for that. It's only a matter of time until Channel 9 is in 3D. Also announced at NAB this year was IIS Media Services 4.0 support for Smooth Streaming over multicast networks which supports transmuxing for adaptive streaming on iPhones. Apologies for how dark the video is, it was very dark on the floor this year and it looked brighter on the monitor than it does now. Smiley

    Very cool, the day is coming when Media Center and Extenders will toggle this on/off automatically with optional override.  A good starting point though would be to enable this on XBox for games.

    anaglyph? seriously?

    It's seriously anaglyph only if you watched the first 4 minutes of the video. Smiley Fast forward to 4:15 to see the part about 3DTV support.


    Check out my blog for full details on the demo:

    That's what I said when I walked up to it. Smiley  Actually, it doesn't look bad. The higher bit item here is that it's doing anaglyph live on the fly. It can also do 'real' 3D, but most people can't do anything with that right now. So anaglyph (in color and BW) are decent options for others.


    Of course, as I mention in the video, you don't have to watch in 3D at all if you don't want. Options are good.
