Roger Mosey announced, “We could, and I believe should, capture some of the games in 3D.”
He also said super high-definition cameras could be used, even though most homes would not have the equipment to view the high-quality images. A number of sports events have already been broadcast in 3D.
He also talked about super high-definition (Super HD) broadcasting for the games.
Super HD is format which has a resolution of 7680 × 4320 pixels. Existing HD televisions have a format of 1920 × 1080 pixels.
“There won’t be a [super HD] set in your living room by 2012, but there could be a limited number of cameras and big screens that will give us a taste of the future – and could give a major creative boost to technologists and people thinking of the content of tomorrow. Both 3D and super HD are currently posing questions and opportunities rather than solutions. Some of the London Olympic Games could be shown in 3D, the BBC’s director of 2012 has said.
