Last month SpatialView has announced the release of a special version of their 3DeeCentral platform for LG Cinema 3D TVs, so that users could watch different stereoscopic 3D content directly from their 3D-capable TV set. The LG Cinema TVs shipped in Canada are supposed to already feature Spatial View’s 3DeeCentral as a premium app and it was supposed to be also available in the LG Apps TV Store worldwide, but after a check I still could not find it listed there in the LG Apps TV in multiple countries. But looking through the LG website with information about applications for their Cinema 3D TV sets I’ve found something else interesting, that there is another similar application released a few days ago – Yabazam 3D…
Yabazam is a similar platform offering stereo 3D content, both free and paid, to what SpatialView’s 3DeeCentral, but Yabazam is a platform being developed by DDD, the same guys that make the TriDef 3D software solution. Currently the Yabazam 3D is the most popular free application in the US LG Apps TV for example and it is also available for other non US users to download an try on their LG 3D TV set. So if you have a compatible passive 3D HDTV from LG, then you might want to try it, as well as the 3DeeCentral app if you manage to get access to it.
Another option also available is the 3D World coming from LG directly that also offers you a free 3D VOD service for watching some stereoscopic 3D content being made available by LG. You get to choose between a few different categories of content and unfortunately similar to the other two platforms, here with the 3D World app the situation is similar. There is not that much content available and you can quickly get to watch everything that is available already, but still, if you haven’t explored the extra functionality for using additional applications on your LG Cinema 3D TV, you should at least try this app as well.
What is still kind of a problem for both stereo 3D content delivery platforms however is that they do not yet have a lot of content in 3D format, so when you start using them you will quickly get to watch all of the available content and then you will have to wait for something new to appear and that can be quite annoying. Also these services are still far from offering the latest 3D movies that Hollywood is producing in order for you to use them instead of getting a Blu-ray 3D version of the movie for example, but this is something that could help them a lot an drive more users. Aside from getting them supported on multiple different 3D-capable platforms, something that they are already doing and constantly expanding the coverage to new devices.
