The Belgian Sport Newspaper La Derniere Heure / Les Sports in 3D

March 10th, 2010 · 7 Comments · General 3D News

Today marked an interesting new first (in Europe at least?) in stereo 3D as the Belgian Sport Newspaper called La Derniere Heure / Les Sports, that translates in English to something like Last Hour Sports, has released its first completely 3D issue. Of course they’ve used paper anaglyph glasses that are provided free of charge with the newspaper as this is the cheapest and easiest way to provide stereoscopic 3D images on plain paper. By the newspaper going in 3D I mean that all the pictures inside it were shot in stereo 3D and printed in anaglyph format, thus needing the free anaglyph glasses provided with the paper to be viewed by the reader. The idea took about two months of experimenting to find the best solution and provide the best results to the readers, and the publishers report that their advertisers liked the idea too. It is interesting to note that during the preparation for example the paper that today’s issue has been printed was not the normal paper used for printing and this was needed in order to provide better results for the anaglyph 3D photos. It is still unclear if the newspaper will continue to be published with 3D photos in anaglyph format, it probably depends a lot on the reaction of the readers. You can see some anaglyph stereo 3D photos published on their website and available for free viewing, but have in mind that it is in French language only!

    Commemorative edition of the regional newspaper “Dziennik Baltycki” (“The Baltic Daily”) was issued 19 May 2005 in 51 170 copies consisted of 28 pages with 3D photos and ads and 4 pages special posters with three-dimensional geometrical figures on the one hand and the 3D solar system on the back. In addition to the 3D photos, ads were printed in 3D too. But not all ads – only 90%. For the rest ads clients doesn’t agreed to a 3D form of publication. Main newspaper was then accompanied by a second ridge, which consisted of 8-12 pages modified due to the distribution area (subregions like Kociewie, Kaszuby, Powisle, Slupsk Earth, Trojmiasto [Threecity of Gdansk, Sopot, Gdynia]). However, second ridge were printed by default.

    Selected pages newspapers were published with the consent of Maciej Wosko, editor-in-chief of “Dziennik Baltycki” (“The Baltic Daily”).
