LG Optimus 3D Can Upload Video to YouTube 3D Channel
We’re seeing the LG Optimus 3D up close and personal at MWC 2011, and one of the huge question marks about the device is: now that we can take 3D photos and videos with it, what can we do with them? To answer this question, LG and YouTube have partnered up to bring us the YouTube 3D Channel.
Using the Optimus 3D you’ll be able to upload these 3D videos directly to YouTube via a special 3D YouTube application, and have them available to share on this new channel.
The LG Optimus 3D will be the first phone featuring a “tri-dual” setup (I prefer the term “triple-double” myself) which takes advantage of a 1 GHz dual-core and dual-channel TI OMAP 4 processor, with 4 GB LP DDR2.
We can’t wait to see this demo’d in real life, and with the LG Press Conference going on right now, I doubt we’ll have to wait very long at all. Stay tuned for more specifics, but in the meantime enjoy the press release that gives us the main scoop.
Full press release:
BARCELONA–(Korea Newswire) February 14, 2011 — LG Electronics (LG) and YouTube are taking a major step forward today by announcing a partnership to provide a unique 3D mobile experience to users. LG’s upcoming Android-powered premium smartphones will enable users not only to capture and view 3D videos without glasses, but also to upload and share them instantly with others via YouTube.
“The Optimus 3D is LG’s newest flagship smartphone. It is our answer to two major pain points of the current 3D experience – limited mobility and specialized glasses. Furthermore, our partnership with YouTube will ensure that our customers can easily generate and access ample 3D content,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, President and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
The new partnership is part of a broader push into 3D entertainment by LG and the world’s largest online video community. YouTube and LG collaborated to enable the delivery and sharing of 3D video onto mobile devices in a way that makes it simple and easy for consumers.
“3D technology has traditionally been reserved for the major Hollywood movie studios,” said Francsico Varela, Head of YouTube Platform Partnerships“With the new LG Optimus 3D anyone anywhere in the world can shoot 3D videos, upload them to YouTube and share them with their friends. We’re excited to see the creative videos our community captures and shares with this new technology.”
Powered by a unique “Tri-Dual” Configuration — dual-core, simultaneous dual-channel and dual-memory, LG’s advanced Optimus 3D will be unveiled at the 2011 Mobile World Congress in Barcelona and will be the first mobile device capable of providing the YouTube 3D experience. The Android-powered Optimus 3D will be available globally starting in Europe early in the second quarter of 2011.
