It seems that this year, for a third consecutive year the Masters Golf Tournament will be broadcast in 3D, continuing the tradition that this event has started back in 2010, and successfully continued in 2011 as well. This year the event will again be broadcasted in 3D both online and on ESPN 3D (possibly on other 3D channels as well), there is already some information about the schedule of the 3D broadcasts – they will not cover the whole event.
The 3D broadcasts of the Masters 2012 Golf Tournament will begin on April 4th, the third practice day as the first practice day is today, and will continue until the last day of the tournament – April 8th. If you want to be able to watch the 3D coverage online, you will need a 3D capable computer with a 3D monitor and 3D glasses (not limited to specific 3D setups) along with a 3D media player with support for Windows Media Video and Side by Side 3D video format.
The 3D coverage will be available during the following windows:
– Wednesday 4 April 2012: 3:00 p.m. – 5:00 p.m.
– Thursday 5 April 2012: 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
– Friday 6 April 2012: 4:30 p.m. – 7:30 p.m.
– Saturday 7 April 2012: 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
– Sunday 8 April 2012: 4:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m.
The information listed above contains broadcast windows in Eastern Time (ET) in USA, the online 3D coverage may not be available worldwide or in some countries, there is no clear information on that yet, but make sure that you get the right time for your Time Zone. Probably the online stream will be rotating a recording during the rest of the time when there is no real-time online broadcast, but you should not rely on that.
