Newswise — When it comes to producing the kind of 3-D show that people watch more than anything else, a live sports broadcast is one of the greatest and most interesting technological challenges facing TV production at the moment. Author Howard Postley takes the reader behind the scenes and shows what TV producers have learned about doing 3-D sports right, and what they have yet to figure out.
The next time you watch 3-D sports on TV, you'll see what the producers of that show are doing correctly and understand some of the choices they make during the broadcast. You might even spot a few errors behind the camera as well as on the playing field.
