CAN is very pleased to announce our appointment by Sony as technical production partner to film the 2011 Championships at Wimbledon in 3D.
Following on from our successful 3D filming of The French Open at Roland Garros in 2010, CAN will be covering the Wimbledon men’s semi-finals, finals and women’s finals.
Utilising the same 3D workflow successfully used at the FIFA World CupTM, five camera positions will be deployed for each match with each position comprising of two Sony HDC-1500s mounted on Element Technica rigs and configured with Sony MPE-200 processors for convergence and interocular alignment.
The feed will be broadcast live to cinemas and broadcasters globally, offering fans a unique opportunity to experience Wimbledon and tennis in an exciting and engaging way.
With an enviable track record of filming major sporting events in 3D, we are more than delighted to be able to add Wimbledon to the CAN portfolio.
