Phereo, whose service has been labelled as the first and only dedicated social network for 3D photographers and viewers, brings to you a vast range of professional and amateur extra-dimensional images, searchable by various categories including landscapes, animals, cars and people. The company is widely recognised as one of the world’s pioneers in the development of 3-D technology and image processing systems for the internet, home entertainment systems and mobile devices.
Aside from being able to view one of the largest collections of 3D images of any service in the world, Phereo users can upload and organise their own photos, list favourites, share images and more, and now, all of these options will be available directly from Samsung’s Smart HDTV displays.
