Sony to cover FIFA finals in 3D for first time

Sony on Thursday said it would be the first to capture FIFA's World Cup finals using 3D cameras. Depending on the tournament results, as many as 25 of the matches will be recorded in the format using Sony's pro-level cameras. The electronics giant hasn't said how soon the 3D footage will be made public or in what formats, though it has already promised 3D Blu-ray players, TVs and the PS3 for 2010.

The plan is one of the first for a major sporting event and comes at a time when TV designers like LG and Samsung either have very early 3D TVs on the market or plan to launch in a similar time frame as Sony. Nearly all these techniques will require special glasses to achieve the 3D effect, often by using stereoscopic images. [image via M J D]
