[TV Program] EBS Sets Its Eye on 3D Video Contents

2010/02/12 | 305 views | Permalink | Source

EBS will develop English-learning programs and animated films for theatrical release.

EBS will step up its efforts to create 3D stereoscopic video contents.

EBS has released 7 3D English-language study programs at the Korea Education Fair 2010 (Edufair 2010), which opened on January 20 at Coex. The broadcasting network said that it will release the 3D animated film, Dinosaurs on the Korean Peninsula Season II, in cinemas as part of its plan to foster 3D production.

"3D technology is highly instrumental in improving educational effects. This year will mark the beginning of 3D contents production and we will expand the scope of our 3D production from large-scale educational programs and documentaries to animated films for children and educational contents", said EBS CEO Gwak Deuk-hoon. EBS presented its 3D English-language version of the domestically-produced animated film CoCoMong, the English-language-learning program Monster House, and the highlight of 2009, the Hello Rookie final.

EBS plans to ensure that its 3D productions can be downloaded via personal computers in addition to giving access to subscribers to pay channels such as Skylife. It also plans to make its 3D productions available to viewers after completing a test airing on over-the-air broadcasting networks in the second half of this year.

In particular, the data volume will be reduced so that subscribers of 50~100Mbps high speed internet service and IPTV will be able to view 3D programs without interruption, while EBS is working closely to develop network-stabilizing technology with the Electronics and Telecommunications Research Institute.

"If our plans are realized, schools and homes will be able to benefit easily from EBS' 3D videos including English-language learning programs featuring native English-speaking instructors, and other educational animated films.

We are planning to create 70 or 80 3D productions including advertisements, for which the government's support is essential as 3D productions cost two or three times more than non-3D productions", said Lee Jae-woo, producer of the EBS Contents Strategy Team.
