BBC Worldwide is celebrating the launch of its new fantasy drama series Atlantis by staging a 3D street art stunt, the first ever to take place at MIPCOM.
Even though during 2013 services have been either ended or ignored by major broadcasters, 4KTV suppliers have used it as a benchmark of what not to do and there has been an almost total absence at IBC, 3DTV is not yet six-feet under says Futuresource Consulting.
Despite some of the biggest names in broadcasting, namely the BBC and ESPN, putting their own platform plans on hold, Virgin Media has enhanced its 3DTV roster with content from Sony, Discovery and New Media Vision.
3D Entertainment Holdings has laid out its digital distribution business model for going forward, with a plan to create TV apps for a range for a range of connected devices. It intends to focus on a 2D and 3D content media creation business.
With perhaps a silent thanks to Andy Murray, the BBC has announced plans to broadcast the dénouement to this year’s Wimbledon tennis championships live in 3D to homes across the UK.
Reports of the death of 3DTV may be somewhat exaggerated as the CAMERON | PACE Group (CPG) has won nominations along with ESPN 3D and CBS for two Sports Emmys.
