Hochheimer, John L.


The broadcasting of live sporting events in America has embarked into a new frontier of three-dimensional (3D) high-definition (HD) broadcasting. In this research paper, I examine what the future holds for live 3D broadcasts of sports in America. I believe that there is a future of sports in 3D. In this paper I go over the history of both sports media and 3D technology as well as gather opinions from professionals in 3D manufacturing, 3D sports media, 3D advertisers, and 3D retail. 3D is here and as time goes on, more and more 3DTV’s will be in American homes.
