Ultra-D Glasses-Free 3D Screens Showcased DAVID ATTENBOROUGH'S NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM ALIVE 3D

LONDON, Feb. 17, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Stream TV Networks, Inc. is pleased to announce its participation with Sky 3D at London's Natural History Museum was extended showcasing its revolutionary Ultra-D glasses-free 3D technology as part of an exhibit on DAVID ATTENBOROUGH'S NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM ALIVE 3D. 

As the title indicates, the Natural History Museum is the central setting for the programme, so it seemed fitting to stage a promotion at the venue.  Marking the first time Ultra-D glasses-free 3D screens were on public display in the UK, two Ultra-D screens situated in the museum's main hall presented highlights of the latest Sky 3D film from Britain's best-loved broadcaster.

"Public response to our Ultra-D screens has been terrific and we are excited that Sky selected Ultra-D as the best glasses-free 3D technology in this instance," said Stream TV CEO Mathu Rajan. "It's a nice validation that our technology is really connecting with museum visitors, immersing them into the natural world of the past in a way that has not been possible before."

Written and presented by the multi-award winning natural history broadcaster, DAVID ATTENBOROUGH'S NATURAL HISTORY MUSEUM ALIVE marks his sixth 3D project for Sky.  Produced by Colossus Productions – a joint venture between Atlantic Productions and Sky 3D – the film is the result of a collaboration with the scientists of the Natural History Museum.  The BAFTA and Emmy award-winning team that produced the film includes the same 3D specialists behind recent blockbuster Gravity and visual effects artists whose combined credits include the successful Harry Potter and Lord of the Rings franchises.

DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...

Given the popularity of the containers, further investment in the telco/cable industry is needed to transition existing VM-based solutions to containerized cloud native deployments. The networking architecture of the solution isolates the network traffic into different network planes (e.g., management, control, and media). This naturally makes support for multiple interfaces in container orchestration engines an indispensable requirement.
