2011 US Open to broadcast in 3D

For the second time the US Open Tennis Championships will be broadcast in 3D, a collaboration between Panasonic, the USTA and CBS Sports. This year new angles will be provided from the 10 Panasonic 3D cameras positioned throughout Billie Jean King National Tennis Center in Queens, New York. CBS Sports will also extend 3D coverage of matches from Louis Armstrong Stadium.

The broadcasts will be viewable on DIRECTV’s “n/3D” channel 103, and streaming in 3D on USOpen.org. This year Comcast will also provide the 3D broadcasts to its Xfinity 3D subscribers.

“Working with our partners CBS Sports and Panasonic, we once again expect to be a leader in presenting our sport to fans in breathtaking new ways,” said USTA Harlan Stone, Chief Business and Communications Officer.
