The channel delivers high-quality, immersive 3-D viewing to home audiences.

"3net: Programming and Producing High-Quality 3DTV" will cover 3net's vision for content and distribution, using new and yet-to-be-released footage as an illustration. Panelists will address the creative and technical challenges of producing and acquiring compelling, multigenre content for the emerging 3-D consumer marketplace. They will also talk about 3net's top productions and explain how these shows meet and exceed the network's creative and technical standards.
