SW19 goes 3D: UK screen locations


Originally published on: 28/05/11 12:31

Wimbledon’s armchair fans are in for a treat at this year’s tournament when they can enjoy the cut and thrust of Centre Court as never before – in high definition 3D.

The men’s singles semi-finals and men’s and ladies finals will be screened in 3D-capable cinemas nationwide, and after a full-production test day was successfully carried out on the eve of Roland Garros, Sony Europe’s Programme Manager Andrew Kydd says tennis enthusiasts have plenty to be excited about.

“I sincerely feel this is one of the best on-screen sports experiences I’ve personally seen,” he said.

“With the main 3D camera position being just over the shoulders (i.e. lower than the traditional tennis camera placement), I almost felt like I was on Centre Court with the players, and even that I was somehow involved in playing each shot as I watched the ball shrinking and disappearing back over the net.”

Participating cinemas that will screen the ties are listed below, with 20 or so additional locations still to be confirmed.
