Sky runs 3D test

BSkyB has said it has made the first broadcast test of 3D television in the home. Over the past few months the broadcaster has captured the boxer Ricky Hatton, England rugby matches, Liverpool football matches and the Gladiators revival using 3D cameras.

The broadcast was made to a standard Sky HD set-top box, but a specially modified television display made by Hyundai was required, along with a pair of 3D glasses.

In March the BBC demoed coverage of the Six Nations rugby championship in the 3D format with France Telecoms Orange Labs showing a similar demonstration at the French Open Tennis championships in May. The Czech O2 TV platform claimed to be offering its subscribers 3D content as long ago as April 2007.

It is anticipated that a number of consumer electronics manufacturers will be showing 3D equipment at the forthcoming CES exhibition in Las Vegas.
