GlobeCast Australia... 3DTV Into Racing (SatBroadcastingContent)
,br /> Toll Holden Racing Team’s Will Davison’s car was fitted with a customized 3D miniature camera rig. Angles tested included an over-shoulder view of the driver and road; a low angle looking at the driver in action; and a third view through the windscreen, the driver’s view. GlobeCam Manager Gerry Justus said his team is working closely with V8 Supercars, race teams and the Seven Network to create the best possible solutions. To date, 3D transmissions globally have been limited to major events using full sized production rigs, and delivered to 3D televisions and cinemas. The miniature rig for the V8 Supercars tests was custom built by GlobeCam. GlobeCam is part of GlobeCast Australia, which is also at the forefront of 3D live delivery to both broadcasters and cinemas, including transmission of 15 FIFA games and State of Origin rugby league games for Australia’s Event Cinemas.
