Panasonic and NTT Work on 3D Broadcast

Panasonic and NTT are working together to develop ‘next-generational’ information systems – including the handling of 3D broadcast for sporting events. Panasonic’s shooting and 3D video processing technologies will be combined with NTT’s high-speed communications, to – for instance – enable public 3D viewing of the 2020 Tokyo Olympics. A service that can be used by smartphone viewers to change camera angles (similar to EE’s recent work: EE Trials 4G Broadcast in Wembley) is also under development.
