With 3D Going Nowhere, Sports Broadcasters Look To 'FreeD' (video)
LATimes.com reports that burdened by funky glasses, a lack of programming and high prices, 3D television just isn’t catching on with consumers.
Now, the buzz is shifting to a video technology known as 4K. It provides a sharper picture by doubling the resolution of traditional high-definition sets.
But this time around, broadcasters aren’t waiting for consumers to buy the ultra-expensive Ultra HD televisions to give them some stunning videos.
NBC plans to shoot a pair of Dallas Cowboys home games this season using 4K video cameras that are normally used in factories to inspect new products. The 12-megapixel cameras, manfactured by Teledyne DALSA, shoot at a fast 60 frames per second.
