Sonic to offer 3D download movie service

Sonic to offer 3D download movie service Sonic has announced that they have begun developing a new 3D movie download service to compliment its current CinemaNow download service.
The company has partnered up with NVIDIA and says the 3D content will be optimized for GeForce GPUs. The CinemaNow player, when it goes live, will support the interesting GeForce 3D Vision and all compatible NVIDIA based 3D-capable displays. A couple notable displays that are capable are the Samsung 2233RZ and ViewSonic FuHzion VX2265wm.

According to Electronista, "the 3D movies will be available in 1080p resolution and will be available via PCs, which will then allow them to be displayed on 3D-ready monitors, digital TVs and projectors. Sonic is working with home theater hardware manufacturers to bring the 3D content to TVs both through Internet-connected sets as well as Blu-ray players."



There was no word on pricing or a timeline set.
