At the conclusion of year which is last, BSkyB demoed what may well be a sizeable portion of the potential future of sports broadcasting: the transmission of sporting events in 3D.
The system, and that is presently being developed, makes use of an ordinary Sky+ box to decode the two separate images needed to develop the three-dimensional effect. Users then just watch the screen through a set of 3D glasses.
Sky has already tested the technology at live sports events like Ricky Hatton’s victory over Juan Lazcano and Liverpool’s Champions League encounter with Marseille at Anfield in November of season which is last.
3D engineering has already been implemented in Hollywood, with a number of flicks actually being recorded and also released in 3D. Most people have predicted that 3D HD television is the next logical step in the evolution of broadcasting.
Despite being able to make use of their present satellite receiver, users is forced to upgrade their television viewing sets. Nevertheless, manufacturers think that completely new 3D TVs will set you back no more than a regular HD-ready plasma set.
The 3D television viewing set which often BSkyB employed in its demonstration at the headquarters of its in Osterley, London, presently retails at over 2,000, but industry experts have predicted that the price tag of the methodology will decrease substantially, particularly if it proves popular.
챔피언스리그중계 described’ Sky+ 3D’ as “a vision of the future” as the company will continue to cultivate the system, that would involve Sky having to apply adjust or upgrade their cameras for 3D at events that are live.
“From our point of view this is only the next stage of our development plan following on from Sky+, from HD and here to 3D is the way we come across things may go in the future,” said BSkyB’s Head of Product, Innovation and Design, Brian Lenz.
“What we’re watching today is first of all that we can undertake it, and we believe we can do it and at a quality level which really makes it fascinating to begin looking at whether there is an appetite for it from the consumer.”
The implementation of 3D TV in viewers’ homes is obviously still a number of years away, however as Sky have shown in the trials, watching your favourite team in three dimensions from the comfort of the lounger could well be a daily occurrence in the somewhat near future.
