Sky Chooses Vizrt for Stereo 3D Channel

March 22, 2010 — Sky Sports today announced that it has chosen Vizrt as the core graphics platform for its 3DTV channel, due to launch in April.
Darren Long, Sky Sports’ Director of Operations described his reasons for the decision, “We have worked with Vizrt for more than ten years.

The results are stunning and the graphics drew special attention from viewers when we recently ran our world’s first stereo 3D football match trial. I am sure that Vizrt’s graphics will enhance our new 3D channel, just as they do for all our other channels.? more
