Following the initial joint announcement to make the world’s first FIFA World Cup™ available in 3D, FIFA and the Sony Corporation has offically unveiled the full list of which games will be shown in 3D.
The offical FIFA statement said, coinciding with the rapidly growing consumer interest in 3D fuelled by the release of blockbuster movie titles in 3D and impending launch of 3D TV sets for the home, the first ever FIFA World Cup™ in 3D will further capture the excitement for millions of football fans around the globe.
With a total of seven pairs of Sony’s professional HDC cameras on rigs at every match, the action on the pitch will be captured in a stunning 3D quality enabled through its proprietary multi-image processor and 3D Outside Broadcast truck.
