HBO Asia brings the best of Hollywood to Asia first due to its licensing deals with major Hollywood studios – Columbia/TriStar, Paramount Pictures, Universal Studios and Warner Bros.

HBO Asia chose Orad’s channel branding solution to replace its existing systems
as 3DPlay was the only solution that provided a pure 3D system, as oppose to
the 2D system which currently exists in the market. 3DPlay also provide a
template and database oriented architecture which enables fast and seamless
programming changes.

HBO Asia has already begun to implement nine 3DPlay systems and within an
incredibly short period of time, will implement 3DPlay for all of its channels
across Asia Pacific. HBO Asia already benefits from 3DPlay’s ability to run
multiple compressed video clips in their native resolution thereby providing
superior graphics capabilities.

Mr. Vincent Teo, Senior Vice President, Technology and Operations, HBO Asia
commented, “Not only are we very pleased with 3DPlay’s capabilities and
its incredibly short implementation period, we are particularly impressed with
Orad’s ability to maintain our exact look and feel, thereby strengthening our branding
even more.”

Mr Avi Sharir, CEO and President of Orad commented: “We are very happy
that HBO, Asia, a premiere entertainment broadcaster, has chosen to adopt our technology as its current and future
platform. We are confident that Orad will expand its relationship with HBO Asia
in the future, thereby strengthening Orad’s position as a leading Channel
Branding provider in the world market.”
