Spain’s TV3 Goes 3D

Catalan regional public broadcaster TV3 will start 3D transmissions in 2010 using stereoscopic image creation. TV3 is making 3D a bet for the future. It says it needs to explore new ways of watching television. Televisió de Catalunya - TV3's public owner- is signing up new productions for 3D-suitable material, including a theatre play. In order to be able to watch these broadcastings the viewers have to use special glasses.

Some 3D programming has recently been screened by broadcasters, including the UK's Channel 4. The United Arab Emirate's have tested 3D on some soccer matches, and the USA's Super Bowl final was broadcast in 3D after some 125 million 3D glasses were distributed for viewers.
