2010 FIFA World Cup™ to pioneer 3D technology

(FIFA.com) Thursday 3 December 2009




For the first time in the history of the FIFA World Cup™, the action on the field at next year's tournament will be broadcast using the next-generation technology 3D. FIFA today (3 December 2009) announced that it had signed a media rights agreement with Sony, an official FIFA Partner, to deliver 3D images from up to 25 matches of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™. To this end, FIFA will use the best expertise available in its production in 3D, and take advantage of Sony’s technologies and knowhow in the area of 3D.
This groundbreaking deal means that viewers watching the matches on Sony’s 3D products will experience the sheer immediacy and visual clarity of the action as if they were on the pitch themselves. FIFA is working on whether a live right will be offered in the coming months.
“This propels the football fan into a whole new viewing dimension and marks the dawning of a new era in the broadcasting of sport,” said FIFA Secretary General Jérôme Valcke. “We are proud that the FIFA World Cup can serve as a platform for advancing technology and the viewing experience, and are truly fortunate to have Sony as a partner in this endeavour.”
“The transition to 3D is underway, and, we, at Sony, intend to be leaders in every aspect. Our sponsorship of the FIFA World Cup allows us to leverage our cutting-edge 3D technology and premier products with dazzling content to produce a unique and totally compelling viewing experience. 3D viewers around the world will feel as though they are inside the stadiums in South Africa, watching the games in person,” said Sir Howard Stringer, Chairman, CEO and President of Sony Corporation.
Sony Pictures Entertainment will produce and distribute the official 3D film of the 2010 FIFA World Cup South Africa™ after the event.

Why would I want to buy a new TV for something that sounds crap anyway? They should just make extra channels called BBC 3D, ITV 3D... a

Use some common sense. A normal TV cannot just transmit 3D signals. Thats the same reason why you need a HD TV to watch HD channels.

Is it just me who finds the 3D glasses a bit annoying? Especially with me, I have to wear it on top of my normal glasses.

Wow! good news.
But I saw the pictures of their Stadiums that I do not like most of them, look very ordinary.
