That’s right, in what it is claiming as a world’s first (it’s not hard as there isn’t another 3D connected device out there) LG has announced, ahead of its press conference at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, that it has signed a deal with YouTube to allow the LG Optimus 3D to upload 3D video straight from the phone to YouTube without the need of a computer.
“The partnership with YouTube will ensure that our customers can easily generate and access ample 3D content,” said Dr. Jong-seok Park, president and CEO of LG Electronics Mobile Communications Company.
“3D technology has traditionally been reserved for the major Hollywood movie studios,” said Francsico Varela, head of YouTube Platform Partnerships “With the new LG Optimus 3D anyone anywhere in the world can shoot 3D videos, upload them to YouTube and share them with their friends. We’re excited to see the creative videos our community captures and shares with this new technology.”
YouTube has offered 3D videos for sometime allowing you to view a stack of content from movie trailers to music videos, however you can’t embed the videos elsewhere on the web, something that YouTube hasn’t confirmed whether it will now allow people to do.
At time of writing (5:30AM GMT Monday 14 February) that still isn’t the case.
The Android-powered Optimus 3D will be available globally starting in Europe early in the second quarter of 2011, says LG and be announced at the company’s press conference on Monday morning.
