GDC servers were used by Korea Lotte Cinemas to broadcast live the FIFA World Cup match between Korea and Argentina in 3D to 52 of its cinemas on June 17th. Korean soccer fans who were unable to travel to South Africa were pleased to watch the FIFA 2010 match in 3D, thanks to Lotte Cinemas' live 3D broadcast using world's most widely adopted RealD 3D systems and GDC servers.
The match shown in Lotte's 52 cinemas with live 3D broadcast – the very first live 3D FIFA World Cup broadcast in Korea and also the world's first 3D FIFA World Cup broadcast, made possible using GDC’s SA-2100 series of servers. The existing GDC servers can be upgraded to include an integrated 3D receiver-decoder capability through a software upgrade and there is no need for any extra hardware whatsoever.
