3Dwalkthroughs.com came across an article on the Television Broadcast website about an invitation only event that will feature an NFL game filmed in 3D. This first of its kind event will be a good test to see if 3D technology will catch on as the premier way of watching sporting events.
The San Diego Chargers and the Oakland Raiders will appear in a 3D simulcast for a select few in a first-of-its kind simulcast. The Dec. 4 gridiron match-up will appear in 3D-capable theaters in Boston, Hollywood and New York.
The National Football is working with 3ality Digital and RealD to produce the event. RealD makes the 3D cinema projection technology that dominates much of the market. It will provide access to enabled theaters and 3D-capable TV monitors so the anointed can see what football of the future will look like at home.
“The NFL has played an important role in the evolution of media and consumer acceptance of emerging technologies…” said Howard Katz, NFL senior vice president of broadcasting and media operations, in a press release. “This broadcast will be an exciting test of how 3D could affect fans’ experience in the future.”
