A difference while viewing this World Cup football can be noticed while watching the matches on ESPN. Instead of the instant cutaways and bold graphics that we all were habitual of seen in live coverage of football matches, now we should expect a scenic panoramic and wide-angle player shots on he TV screens.
This in-your-face technology has also been a learning experience for the crewmembers of ESPN when they first tested its 3-D camera when they shot football games in September. But that time the action on the ground was too fast for the cameras as the ball moved quickly.
Now the signals from both the conventional and 3-D cameras are fed for the production fro the live eventually then these signals are pushed to pay-TV distributors and a 3-D TV set merges the signals eventually.
