Channel 4 to go 3D

Plans week of 3D shows, films and magic tricks

3 Big data security analytics techniques

Not to be outdone by Sky, Channel 4 has broadcast plans for a week-long series of 3D TV programmes.

Instead of broadcasting everything from John Snow’s news announcements to Hollyoaks re-runs in 3D, Channel 4 will only air selected shows in three dimensions.

For example, several movies and a Darren Brown magic hour - 3D Magic Spectacular - have been prepped for a 3D makeover. A rundown of the best ever 3D moments will also be shown.

Channel 4 has even obtained some apparently rare footage of the Queen from around the time of her 1953 coronation, which the channel’s planning to broadcast in 3D.

Perhaps the show will even give the Queen herself a few ideas on ways to jazz up her annual Christmas speech?

The channel has opted to use Danish ColorCode technology for the broadcasts, requiring viewers to wear special glasses with amber and blue filter lenses. The amber filter relays colour information and the blue filter helps create that 3D depth of field.

Specs will be punted out free-of-charge through supermarket chain Sainsbury’s, with the first 3D programmes set to be shown this autumn.

Channel 4’s announcement follows a similar – but better – unveiling by Sky, which has inked plans to launch a subscription-based TV channel dedicated entirely to 3D programming. ®
