Chris Taber captures Ryder Cup first tee in 3D with Polecam Posted: 12/10/2010
Chris Taber captures Ryder Cup first tee in 3D with Polecam Chris Taber, one of Britain's leading Polecam operators, reports the successful completion of a project for Sky 3D, Europe's first 3D television channel.
 
"The 2010 Ryder Cup held at Celtic Manor was covered by BSkyB in 3D using 21 stereoscopic camera rigs," comments Robin Broomfield, 3D Development Manager, BSkyB. "One of these rigs was a 3D Polecam supplied by Chris Taber of Pedestal TV. The Polecam was located on the first tee and gave spectacular 3D shots of the crowd in the stands and the players teeing off. This was the first time a 3D Polecam has been used by BSkyB on one of the 3D sport events but has given a new dimension to the otherwise low angles that look so good in 3D."
 
"Two Toshiba IK-HD1 cameras were attached to the new Polecam 3D mounting plate," adds Chris Taber. "This allowed easy adjustments of convergence and roll to be made at the head while final adjustments were handled in a Telegenic truck via a Sony 3D convergence unit. Left and right HD-SDI signals were converted to fibre for a run of nearly 2 kilometres back to the outside broadcast compound. Data from and to the Polecam remote control panel was also sent via fibre and allowed the engineers full control of the cameras: a vital requirement for 3D.

3D Stereo Rigs rewrite History Posted: 18/03/2010
3D Stereo Rigs rewrite History Altogether two Freestyle Rigs and four Standard Rigs from P+S TECHNIK have been applied during the very first football 3D-HD-Live-Production in Germany
 
After successful trials of the necessary equipment on 23rd February during the UEFA Champions League game VFB Stuttgart – FC Barcelona Munich has been the showcase location of the first football 3D-HD-Live-Production in Germany that has taken place on Sunday 14th of March 2010.
 
Not less than 120 selected guests were shown the top game between Bayer Leverkusen and Hamburger SV (HSV) live and in 3D-HD in Munich on behalf of Sky Germany. Altogether six 3D Stereo Rigs from P+S TECHNIK have been applied in Leverkusen: Four Heavy Duty Standard Rigs and two Freestyle Rigs mounted on Steadicams. Satisfied faces could be seen after the final whistle when the audience took off its 3D glasses. Franz Beckenbauer is reported to have said: „The pictures I have seen here today are fantastic. In my age I already have participated in many TV developments and I am sure that with 3D HD we are at the dawn of a new era in TV technology."

Jigsaw Systems acquires the new 3DRigs.com agency for the UK Posted: 25/02/2010
Jigsaw Systems acquires the new 3DRigs.com agency for the UK

Jigsaw Systems, experts in pro video, pro audio, stereoscopic 3D and NLE, have announced that they recently acquired the new 3DRigs.com agency for the UK.

3DRigs.com (based in South Africa) and Jigsaw Systems launched the world-class 3D Pro Ultra Rig at this year's Broadcast Video Expo (BVE).


The 3D Pro Ultra Rig uses an onboard computer, coupled with Pro Rig software to calculate the correct interaxial and convergence settings – whether shooting stereoscopic 3D films using 35mm film, advanced digital cinema cameras or HD video cameras. The 3D Pro Ultra Rig also uses advanced motion control technology and robust hybrid stepper motors to set the cameras to their correct positions for optimum accuracy during operation. The onboard computer can be conveniently detached from the rig, allowing the computer to become a hand-held device.

The rig will soon be available with a wireless interface and joystick control to give outside broadcast units full on-the-fly 3D rig management for live action shoots.
