LIVE 3D safaris are here!

This is what we have all been waiting for! Come and join us on our first live 3d safari broadcast!

These are truly exciting times, WildEarth with Safari TV will be the first to broadcast live 3D safaris in the world. Can you imagine seeing an elephant reaching out towards you with his trunk, being surrounded by a buffalo herd, or have the feeling of being so close to Karula or one of the Majingilanes you could reach out and touch them? After watching the footage shot over the weekend, it really gave me goosebumps, this is now possible!

WE have always been on the cutting edge of technology and I am amazed at how far the WE family have come. Ever since 1998 with the worlds first LIVE water hole webcam installed by Graham, which refreshed every 30 seconds, and then the days when our first safaris where limited to only 80 people, to now! Broadcasting to thousands and on the verge of 3D!!

Along with the 3D viewing we have 3D stereo sound, which will also help to immerse you further into the African bush experience! Viewers need not worry, you don't need new monitors and you can still view in 2D, but if you want the full immersive experience all you need is a pair of the normal anaglyph 3D glasses with either red/blue, red/green or blue/yellow filters. The new WildEarth player will have a small 3D button at the bottom right hand corner and you will be able to select the type of 3D anaglyph glasses that you have, and watch in 3D, just like on YouTube.

The entire team have been so excited and all looks good for broadcasting this week on Thursday afternoon! I really hope you will be on board Gunda with us for this next incredible chapter in the history of LIVE safaris.
