Want to see Roger Federer’s full swing or Rafael Nadal’s knock out blows close up without buying tickets? Well now you can. By taking a back seat off court and moving into your living room, you can watch all the action from this year’s Wimbledon in the comfort of your own home in 3D.
If you’re worried about missing out on this year’s Wimbledon, Sony has just the ticket for you. They will be bringing all home viewers the chance to watch the sport live in 3D with the help of some HD quality active 3D glasses.
This is the first time the world class tennis event will be broadcast in 3D. Using full HD 3D Bravia TVs, Sony is to game, set and match the viewing experience for tennis fans. You will be able to watch matches live in 3D from the touch of a button, making sure you get the real court side experience.
“Sony is proud to be helping deliver Wimbledon for the first time in 3D,” said Gildas Pelliet, Managing Director, Sony UK and Ireland.
“We have expertise at every stage of the 3D journey, which is why our professional cameras are used on major TV and film projects, and why our BRAVIA TV range offers such a great 3D experience.”
The 3D broadcast will be screened on Saturday 2nd July and Sunday 3rd July across all major HD platforms. You won’t need your Wimbledon poncho for this event and all your Pimms and strawberries won’t be ruined by traditional Wimbledon rain: forecasters are predicting a washout! To help promote the event Sony have launched a viral game, Bounc3D.
You can even view the finals at selected cinemas including Vue, Odeon, Apollo and Showcase cinemas across the county.
After last week’s Sky Arts broadcast of the Isle of Wright Festival live in 3D it appears live events and 3D is a match made in heaven and something broadcasters and manufacturers are looking to push heavily in the future.
If tennis is not your ball game then you will be pleased to hear that Sony are also bringing viewers the chance to view the UEFA Champions League final and The Ryder Cup in full 3D later this year.
