Telenor stages live 3DTV transmissions

May 28, 2010

Telenor Satellite Broadcasting (TSBc) has commenced its first live 3D transmissions in the Nordic region –providing the “Panasonic 3D experience” with live coverage by Eurosport of Roland-Garros, the French Open tennis tournament, which runs from May 24th to June 6th. This first Nordic 3D transmission is the result of co-operation between Nordic pay-television operator Canal Digital, leading European sports broadcaster Eurosport and global consumer-electronics manufacturer Panasonic.

Eurosport is broadcasting Roland Garros live in both standard- and high-definition across 58 European markets and has launched an extra Eurosport channel to transmit live 3D broadcasts from the centre court of Roland-Garros via the THOR 6 satellite at 1 degree West. Telenor Satellite Broadcasting will turn around the signal from Paris and uplink to THOR 6 for distribution in the Nordic territories.

The Eurosport 3DTV signal on THOR 6 is encrypted and will be made available only to a closed group.
