No firmware update required, PopBox will be 3D capable at launch.
Over-the-top solutions – you know, things like the Boxee Box, PopBox and Roku player – are relatively new, but they're already playing a bit of catch up. Sure, you can download and stream your favorite content without the need for a cable TV subscription, but can you do it in 3D?
With PopBox you can, or you'll be able to when it launches. The company announced today that they've licensed RealD 3D technology for their PopBox and PopBox Wireless. That means you'll be ready for 3D web video streaming right to your home.
It is, potentially, a pretty big move for PopBox. "Content created in 3D should be enjoyed in 3D," says PopBox CEO Alex Limberis. "Leveraging the RealD Format gives our community a new dimension of HDTV entertainment right out of the gate."
The PopBox will be ready for 3D on day one, but whether there will be 3D content worth downloading is another story altogether.
