Foxtel to broadcast 3D TV in 2011

In-house testing underway; Foxtel set-top boxes already capable of receiving 3D broadcasts

Foxtel intends to broadcast 3D television signals in 2011, tech blog Gizmodo reports. “Foxtel has been closely monitoring 3D developments since January of 2009 and has an active program for 3D broadcasting in its Engineering Development Labs,” according to a statement by Foxtel CEO Kim Williams. “3D is an exciting development in broadcasting, and Foxtel HD set-top-units have already carried 3D signals in our premises with terrific picture clarity. Foxtel will continue to run laboratory trials on 3D transmissions over the next year.”

Test broadcasts of 3D signals to customers will not occur for at least another year, and no information on pricing has been revealed. “I expect that Foxtel will bring its first test broadcasts in 3D to subscribers in 2011 when full product details will be revealed," Williams said. "It will be an exciting addition to our range of high quality HD products which now encompasses the most comprehensive offering in Australia with 15 24-hour HD channels." Watching 3D broadcasts requires a compatible television set and special viewing glasses.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
