By Community | September 9, 2012
Sky has joined forces with 3D production company CAMERON/PACE Group – founded by Hollywood film director James Cameron and Vince Pace – to deliver live 3D coverage of the Ryder Cup from Medinah Country Club, Illinois beginning Friday 28 September.
The Sky 3D channel will show more than 30 hours of live coverage of The Ryder Cup and the technology and experience available two years on from the first 3D Ryder Cup broadcast on Sky at Celtic Manor in 2010, will make it another truly immersive experience.
“We’re looking forward to working in partnership with Sky to deliver truly outstanding 3D coverage of The Ryder Cup,” said Avatar and Titanic director James Cameron, co-chairman of CAMERON/PACE Group(CPG), the industry leader in 3D technologies and production services.
“Drawing on CAMERON/PACE Group’s global expertise in live 3D sports production, Sky’s coverage will offer 3D viewers an exhilarating perspective on the one of the world’s most popular sporting events.”
John Cassy, Director, Sky 3D, comments: “Building on what’s already been a spectacular summer of sport on Sky 3D – including comprehensive 3D coverage of the Olympic Games – we’re continuing to forge ahead in delivering unique and immersive sporting experiences to our customers.
“3D brings an entirely new perspective to watching golf. It picks out all the changes of height and distance on a golf course and makes them real, enabling 3D viewers to get a real sense of perspective of the undulating greens, sloping fairways and the depth of the galleries. It’s great to be able to mark the second anniversary of Sky 3D with live coverage of one of the biggest events in sport.”
