3D Visionary Catherine Owens Teams with 3doo as Creative Advisor

New York, NY – 3doo, Inc. today announced a formal venture collaboration with award-winning film director Catherine Owens, principal director and co-producer of “U2 3D,” one of the most successful live-action 3D films to date, to advance global digital distribution of 3D and Ultra HD media content through a range of 3doo projects.   Read more...

“When I first heard about 3doo and their Player App’s unique and revolutionary ability to  upload and stream 3D content to any 3D enabled device, I thought, “Eureka!,” said Owens. “This is what everyone I know working in 3D has been waiting for: a single marketplace where 3D filmmakers and content providers can control what happens to their work, and 3D users can capture and enjoy 3D content on their own devices.

“Helping to make 3doo’s media platform more than just an app, but a genuinely worldwide digital community for 3D producers and consumers who want to learn, share and connect on all aspects of 3D film making, is an exciting opportunity for me,” added Owens, whose pioneering “U2 3D” project – filmed and edited before “Avatar” – was acclaimed by the New York Times as “the first IMAX movie that deserves to be called a work of art.”

Owens is known for her collaborative work as the director of visual content for U2 on their last five world tours. In April 2010, she traveled to India to make a 3D documentary about Kumbh Mela, the largest spiritual gathering in the world. In 2012, she completed her third 3D film project, “Sculpting Space,” a documentary film on the Irish dancer Colin Dunne.

3doo is the only company in the world currently operating a global 3D media distribution platform. As the only source for all 3D content and the only complete 3D eco-system, 3doo is the solution for easily connecting thousands of 3D media producers with the rapidly expanding mass market of tens of millions of 3D end users around the world in an open marketplace. 

“We are thrilled to have Catherine Owens contribute her innovative impulses to the 3doo team as a creative content advisor,” said Ingo Nadler, President of 3doo, Inc. “Part of our mission is to bring together the greatest achievers in the 3D and Ultra Media industries to advance the ongoing breakthroughs in global 3D media distribution. Catherine brings a tremendous record of artistic and commercial success in the development of 3D technology and as a director with an artist’s unique perspective and high-value understanding for what is needed to produce quality 3D.”
Nadler stated that Owens, as a member of 3doo’s Advisory Board, will also help guide strategic development in areas such as content growth, 3D education, and design and application use.

As an active member of the International 3D & Advanced Imaging Society, Owens will be presenting one of the society’s 3D technology and best new product awards at a Sept. 18 ceremony at Paramount Studios in Los Angeles. Owens will also be the keynote speaker at the second Toronto International Stereoscopic 3D Conference on Sept. 20. Her presentation will focus on the education of young 3D film makers and the transformational advances taking place within the 3D film industry.

The 3doo Player App, recognized as one of the best 3D products of 2013 by the International 3D Society, dynamically generates channels and allows producers to distribute 3D content directly into Smart TVs.

Intuitive and elegant user interface enables the 3D consumer to directly access 3D channels and featured free content currently, with pay-per-view Video-on-Demand in the next several months. In 2014, 3doo is planning to roll out “my3doo,” a beautifully designed dedicated area within the 3doo Player App that will enable 3D social networking.

The rapid growth of 3doo has been marked by the availability of the Player App from 5% of all 3D TVs worldwide in 2012 to more than 60% in 2013. Since its launch in April 2012, the 3doo Player App has featured 2.5 million film views to date, with 1,500 new unique users signing up daily.

Intuitive and elegant user interface enables the 3D consumer to directly access 3D channels and featured free content currently, with pay-per-view Video-on-Demand in the next several months. 

The 3doo team developed the Player App as 3D content for home television viewers was starting to build, but without 3D broadcast channels and or an effective technical means for talented young 3D film producers to get their content to interested audiences. 
A great deal of design thought was applied to the Player App user interface, to provide Smart TV viewers with exciting 3D content with as few clicks as possible. 3doo also devised the concept of a universal market place that connects producers and studios directly with owners of any 3D device, independent of the technology. 
In 2014, 3doo is planning to roll out “my3doo,” a beautifully designed dedicated area within the 3doo Player App that will enable 3D social networking.
