BSkyB 3D developments outlined at 3D Masters, June 2011

17 March 2011

BSkyB broke new ground last October with the launch to homes of the world’s first dedicated 3D TV channel. Architect of that service is Sky’s Chief Engineer Chris Johns, who arguably more than any other executive in world broadcasting, has a handle on the direction of 3D TV.
His keynote to 3D Masters will take up the Sky 3D story and offers delegates a chance to hear the lessons the broadcaster has learnt to date. There are huge challenges behind the infrastructure, monitoring and distribution of 3D which have yet to be solved, while the generation of quality 3D content in sufficient volume remains, for many, the format’s Achilles heel. Johns will also point to what UK audiences can expect from Sky 3D over the next few months and provide his insight into whether or when glasses-free 3DTV viewing may go mainstream.
