|TV 2 became Norway’s first broadcaster to air live 3D last night when it delivered the Norway v Cyprus football match from the national football stadium in Oslo in 3D. TV 2’s OB team used its recently-acquired 3D-ready OB truck to produce the broadcast. Five 3D cameras were set up within the stadium to provide 3D images that were delivered to Canal Digital’s cable and DTH customers.|
The broadcast came ahead of TV 2’s proposed online 3D broadcast on Saturday when it will air a Premier League match in 3D to web TV and IPTV viewers.
Yesterday’s broadcast was delivered in cooperation with Norway-based video contribution and distribution technology company T-VIPS. TV 2 used T-VIPS’s TVG450 JPEG2000 Gateway solution. It was first used in 2009 and has since been involved in a number of live 3D projects, including opera in Sweden and the IAAF World Athletics championships that were held in Korea earlier this year.
