Fifa World Cup in 3D
FIFA and Sony shoot FIFA World Cup in 3D

12 Apr 2010 | Rasmus Larsen |

Following the initial joint announcement to make the world’s first FIFA World Cup available in 3D, FIFA and Sony has unveiled insights into what the football fans around the globe can expect from this innovative undertaking to add a third dimension to the football viewing experience.

FIFA World Cup in 3D

With a total of seven pairs of Sony's professional HDC cameras on rigs at every match (model: HDC-1500), the action on the pitch will be captured in a stunning 3D quality and 3D Outside Broadcast truck. Starting
from the FIFA Confederations Cup last year in South Africa, Sony has been working on enhancing the 3D capturing of fast-moving football action and has since conducted a number of 3D filming trials in Europe.

3D filming will be realised at five out of the 10 FIFA World Cup stadiums: Soccer City and Ellis Park in Johannesburg, Durban, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth. 25 matches in total will be filmed and broadcast in 3D, including the opening game on June 11 at Soccer City (South Africa vs Mexico) and the crowning final game on July 11 also in Johannesburg.
