FIFA World Cup 2010 3D TV Stream Sample – Argentina vs Nigeria

June 14th, 2010 · 21 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos


The FIFA World Cup 2010 has started and some lucky people are able to watch some of the matches in stereo 3D thanks to Sony filming and broadcasting the event in stereo 3D, but unfortunately this is not available in everywhere. So here is a short sample recorded from 3D TV stream from the football/soccer game between Argentina and Nigeria, showing the goal that ensured Argentina’s win in the match. The original broadcast was quite bright and had some ghosting around the players running on the green field, so I’ve applied some “ghost-busting” to improve the situation. Also the stream is in 1080i (interlaced) and squashed half resolution, but I’ve recompressed it into a full 1080p, deinterlaced and in Side By Side format, although the quality is not like it would’ve been with a true 1080p broadcast. There is very little pop-out as you’ll see and the depth you get in the wider shots is not that much, but still a good preview on what you can expect from future sports broadcasts in 3D… and they will probably improve more and get better with time and experience. As usual don’t forget to share your comments below if you download and watch the video and feel more than welcome to share any video in stereo 3D format you’ve made or found somewhere…
