Last week's press conference was the first time they've been able to announce a major deal, which suggests that production is -- or should be -- around the corner. I've spoken with Mathu Rajan, the president of Stream TV, and he's given me a date which is encouraging, but with the industry being what it is, I'm looking forward to it being definitive. But this new announcement is a major step -- forming a partnership with BOE, the top supplier of panels in the world, including supplying LEDdisplays for Apple (iPads, as well as Macbooks) and Huawei, a major worldwide company in mobile phones and televisions.
Here's how they announced it in the first two paragraphs of their longer press release --
"Stream TV Networks, Inc. and BOE Technology Group Co., Ltd. are pleased to announce the finalization of their long-form strategic agreement to combine the high-resolution panels of BOE, the number one panel supplier globally, with Stream TV's award-winning Glasses-Free 3D technology, Ultra-D. With the new agreement, BOE is entering into the 3D market hand in hand with Stream TV.
"Stream TV Networks and BOE have just concluded a joint press conference in Beijing, attended by Senior Executive Staff from both companies, to showcase the latest versions of Stream TV's Glasses-Free 3D technology. At the press conference, BOE expressed its intention to include Stream TV's technology on their entire series of product lines going forward."
