The NFL will test broadcast in 3-D the San Diego Chargers vs. Oakland Raiders game on Dec. 4 in theaters located in Los Angeles, New York, and Boston. According to a CBS article, the NFL is thinking beyond just high-definition and testing 3-D technologies which will make games even more realistic.
As well as showing the game in 3-D theaters, there will also be 3-D televisions on display at the theaters which are already being developed by some electronics companies to display 3-D movies.
One of the first times an NFL game was filmed in 3-D was Superbowl 2004 when the New England Patriots played the Carolina Panthers. Thursday’s Dec. 4 game at Qualcomm Stadium will be the first time the NFL will present a game live in 3-D.
