Olympics Broadcast in 3D

The 2012 Summer Olymic Games in London will be broadcast in 3D by NBC in partnership with their programming distributors.  The 3D access will likely be available through Comcast and DirecTV and other pay-TV services.

The always anticipated opening ceremonies will be Friday, July 27, 2012.

The 200-plus hours of 3D coverage, to be produced by Olympic Broadcasting Services (OBS) and shown on next-day delay in the U.S., will use Panasonic’s technology on such visually dynamic events as the opening and closing ceremonies, swimming, diving and gymnastics.

For those who already are 3D ready, prepare to be dazzled by the feeling of being right in the middle of all the action.  For those who aren’t yet 3D capable, time is running out before  the trumpets sound the start of the Opening Ceremonies.
