TeleCapri, TCN launch free 3D service in Naples

September 25, 2013

From Branislav Pekic in Rome

3d-tvItalian local TV channels Telecapri and TCN-TeleCapriNews have started technical tests of anaglyph 3D, a three-dimensional technology visible on all TV sets.

The tests will serve to optimise the broadcasting and transmission technology and sites and acquaint viewers with the procedures. The 3D programmes are transmitted on Telecapri (DTT channel 76) at 08:50 and on TCN-TeleCapriNews (DTT channel 74) at 14.30, 16.30 and 21.30 hours.

To watch the 3D programmes, viewers must use new anaglyph glasses (a new version of the old two-colour glasses, designed in Italy, but produced elsewhere), at a cost of €0.90. The glasses are distributed in local stores.

The initiative follows 3D tests conducted by Telecapri for six months, which were visible only on 3D TV sets using active or passive glasses.
