Forget HD – I want 3D!

At the weekend the BBC carried out trial live coverage of the Six Nations rugby match between England and Scotland in 3D high-definition.

This is the first time such an outside broadcast has been carried out in the UK.

Pictures were captured by three sets of dual high definition cameras bolted together for each 3D picture channel.

The clever stuff was carried out by The3DFirm technology, with the result viewed through polarising glasses.

The trial involved BBC Resources London Outside Broadcasts – ironic given the announcement last week of the plan to sell the department despite no agreement from BECTU.
