Discovery’s 3net Studios to be based in Silver Spring

3net, a 3D television channel formed by a joint venture of Silver Spring-based Discovery Communications Inc., Sony Corp. and IMAX Corp., announced the formation of 3net Studios, a new television program production and distribution division.

3net Studios will be based at both Sony Pictures headquarters in Los Angeles, and Discovery Communications’ home in Silver Spring. The new division will produce programs in a variety of formats centered on 3D and 4K, a new, high-resolution TV technology.

3net launched the first fully programmed, 24/7, 3D television network in the U.S. in early 2011, which is currently available on DIRECTV.
