UEFA CL Final in 3D by TV3: In Cinemas and on TV
Through this new 3D initiative, TV3 reasserts its pioneering commitment to the new broadcast and production formats. In fact it broadcasted the final match in all currently existing formats – standard, HD with Dolby Digital sound, and in 3D. This is the third occasion in which TV3 distributes the 3D signal of Champions League matches. The first was the 2010 final held at Spanish Bernabeu Stadium – on that occasion, TV3 produced the HD signal for the whole world and in 3D for the first time for an event of such magnitude. The second occasion was the first-leg match of the Champions semi-finals of that same year between Madrid and Barcelona. But Saturday’s final was the first to reach cinemas across the whole of Catalonia as well.
TV3 began its 3D broadcasts in 2010. It was the first television of the Spanish state to broadcast in this format, and the first television to do it regularly through its TV3HD channel. Televisió de Catalunya's 3D broadcasts are carried out using the side-by-side technology.
