Bbc 3d Tennis Channel

Sony has partnered up with the All England Lawn Tennis Club to film the world's most prestigious tennis event in 3D, with cinemas the likely recipients of the footage, although broadcast deals are being sought.

This optical tracking system gathers reliable and highly-precise tracking data, enabling studio cameras to be moved when overlaying augmented graphics.

However, like the World Cup, Wimbledon has to be screened on terrestrial channels - the BBC in this case — which means that Sky will almost certainly not be able to pick up the 3D rights for the UK's only 3D channel. Partnership "Sony and The All England Lawn Tennis Club today announced their official supplier partnership to bring Wimbledon in 3D to suitably equipped cinemas around the world, offering the perfect opportunity for fans to experience the Championships like never before in a completely new environment, while retaining all the excitement and atmosphere of the famous Centre Court," stated Sony.

BBC drops 3D service

The two parties will also seek further possibilities to deliver 3D tennis to a much wider audience over time. Nah So unless the BBC is launching a previously denied 3D channel any time soon, don't hold your breath for live 3D tennis.

On the bright side, Sony's announcement is indicative of a growing rise in filming major events in 3D. Sky is broadcasting many key sports in 3D now, and the World Cup last summer was filmed in 3D as well, along with many other events from the worlds of arts and leisure.

  • Main article: Stereo photography techniques Stereoscopy is the most widely accepted method for capturing and delivering 3D video. It involves capturing stereo pairs in a two-view setup, with cameras mounted side by side and separated by the same distance as is between a person's pupils.

Wimbledon is still regarded as one of the crown jewels of the British sporting calendar, and tennis is one of the sports that has been filmed in 3D before, including the French Open at Roland Garros last year.
