Sony Professional has put together a ‘behind the scenes’ video demonstrating how live 3d sports broadcasts work. The video (watch it below) was recorded during the run up to a live 3d broadcast of a Premier League match on Sky a few months ago.
A very similar setup is currently being used to broadcast 25 World Cup games in 3d. Unfortunately, none of these games is being broadcast on TV in the UK as neither the BBC nor ITV has a 3d channel.
The good news, though, is it’s recently been confirmed that 40 cinemas (including branches of Odeon, Cineworld, Vue and Empire) will be showing eight of the matches in 3d, from the quarter finals onwards.
