Sky pushing ahead with 3D TV plans

Monday, March 9 2009, 09:19 GMT


Sky has confirmed that it is continuing to develop its plans to provide 3D television services using its existing Sky+ HD platform.
Plans to show key event programming in three dimensions were first demonstrated last December. The technology demonstration showed a method of delivering 3D video over the existing HD playout and set-top box infrastructure; however, consumers will require a special 3D set and glasses to see the effect.

Speaking at the Digital TV Group's annual conference in London, Sky's chief engineer Chris Johns said that there was a possibility that homes could "see 3D" by the end of the year.
"We have the luxury to be able to test and trial 3D," said Johns. "Our aim is to refine 3D techniques and TV production and build a content library over the coming year."

Sky's research is still taking the broadcaster down the path of using its existing HD infrastructure.
"We want to use the current set top box without significant modifications to be 3D ready as well as HD ready," Johns explained.
However, he added that the first generation of 3D services will likely require the user to purchase a 3D-capable set and wear glasses for 3D programming.
