Next Rangers/Islanders first game in history to be broadcasted in 3D
From the NY Times, per Kukkla's Korner...
MSG Network will show next Wednesday’s Islanders-Rangers game in 3D, the first time a hockey game has been carried in the technology, the network said. It will be available to Cablevision subscribers and offered to other providers.
The game will also be shown on a screen at the Theater at Madison Square Garden.
For the game, five 3D cameras will be set up on platforms lower down in the arena than for high-definition broadcasts. “You produce 3D games differently,” said Mike Bair, the president of MSG Media. “And you have to hold shots longer and not cut as quickly.” Kenny Albert and Dave Maloney, the Rangers’ radio team, will shift to the 3D broadcast.
this is something the NHL should hop all over. If it is not too much to broadcast games in 3D. 3D tv sets are beginning to pop up all over the place and it might be a good way for the NHL to expand its viewership by being the first sport to broadcast its games in 3D.
