Lossless compared to blu-ray original.

The claim is that it is "visually lossless", so they're not saying technically it is blu-ray quality, just that you won't be able to tell the difference. A tough claim on a AVS board no doubt. But certainly it has to be better than side-by-side, which even I can see a huge difference.

I guess we'll have to wait until March to find out for sure. But that's what they're claiming.

Variety has another article out today discussing 3D streaming and Sensio is mentioned again.

I know this is getting off topic, but for comparison purposes can someone tell me how much bandwidth a typical 3D movie takes up using side-by-side today?

I understand what lossless means. I also understand that there is no freaking way they can do that with 2 Mbps. They're simply full of crap.

3d blurays are frame packed, not side-by-side...

I know that. My question was, when 3D movies are streamed side-by-side how much bandwidth is typically required. Obviously nobody is broadcasting a frame packed image.

I'll check the bitrates of the two 3DTV channels I receive (ESPN3D and Xfinity 3D) when I get home from work. Aside from the lowered resolution, these channels look good. I believe they're being sent out in MPEG4, but I will confirm that as well.

I have xfinity and I didn't have any audio lag. The game looked sweet. I especially loved the commercial for ESPN 3D. They had some great clips. The Transformers 3D Bluray preview was probably the best part. I will be buying that one for sure.

Just read a more recent article that says the following re: the Sensio 3DGo service:

"The films will be sent by streaming at a rate of 3 Mbit / s or 9 Mbit / s (high quality), depending on the speed of Internet connection available from the user. Their bandwidth should be equivalent to that of a film in high definition and suitable for most high-speed connections, at least in its version 3 Mbit / s."

Looks like they will have a "low quality" and "high quality" option.

3 Mbps will definitely be low quality, but 9 Mbps is perfectly reasonable. Still not going to look like a Blu-ray, though.

LOL, I'll stick to the 100% resolution of HD, without the accompanying heachache.
