Eutelsat... 3DTV Is A Racket @ IFA (Content)
The US OPEN in 3D will be available on a dedicated Eurosport 3D signal for an exclusive broadcast at Panasonic's booth at IFA (hall 5.2 a/b). The 3D signals are being transmitted to Panasonic's booth by the EUROBIRD 9A satellite that pioneered regular broadcasting of 3D content in Europe via a permanent channel launched by Eutelsat in 2009. The images are displayed on Panasonic's state-of-the-art Viera 3D Plasma TVs, giving the entire industry and consumers visiting the IFA the unique opportunity to experience world-class sport in immersive high-quality 3D. The event is showcasing the potential of sport as a driver for the consumer 3D market and Panasonic's full end-to-end 3D capabilities, from 3D professional camcorders on court, to new-generation consumer Viera plasma displays.
