Land-based 3D TV hits the air May 19

By Kim Tong-hyung

Korea will beam its first stereoscopic three-dimensional (3D) television programs over terrestrial broadcasting networks on May 19, the Korea Communications Commission (KCC) said Thursday.

All four of the country’s land-based television stations – KBS, MBC, SBS and EBS – will participate in the trial services, the KCC said, beginning with the 3D broadcasts of the 2010 Colorful Daegu Pre-Championships Meeting on KBS, which precedes the International Association of Athletics Federations (IAAF) World Championships next year.

SBS is one of the media companies that will be involved in the global test for 3D television during the FIFA World Cup in June, as it owns the exclusive broadcasting rights for the tournament as well as the live 3D rights.
