Comments on: Football in 3D, coming to a theater near you http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/12/05/football-in-3d-coming-to-a-theater-near-you/ Where media and technology meet Wed, 16 Nov 2016 08:48:25 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=4.2.5 By: Bernie Woodall http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/2008/12/05/football-in-3d-coming-to-a-theater-near-you/#comment-354494 Wed, 10 Dec 2008 15:38:09 +0000 http://blogs.reuters.com/mediafile/?p=13436#comment-354494 Hello Per Peterson. Yes yes yes the surfing and snowboarding footage was memorable. The flakes of snow after the snowboarder cut seemed like they were coming right at us. The 3D shots of objects (footballs, snow, surfers) coming right at the camera really brings out the advantages over “2D” video. Football is largely watched by people who either never played or never played beyond high school. I assume people active in a sport would be even more likely to support extra charges if there are any for 3D. There’s a huge audience of snowboarders and surfers who would love this. Also I assume that golf, because there are so many active golfers, will work. Golf for me on TV is boring but my friends who are golfers can watch it for hours and hours. But I digress. YES, way cool footage.

We at 3ality Digital are delighted that the NFL partnered with us for the broadcast, and are equally delighted with the results. And yes, we agree that cheerings and catcalls are a necessary part of the experience — particularly when dealing with “football” on your side of the pond — and are definitely looking forward to the day when those 3D television sets will be in pubs and homes. May be sooner than we all think!

–Angela Wilson Gyetvan, 3ality Digital
