Telegenic3D

We have established ourselves as the market leaders in 3D technology and provided the equipment and expertise for the World’s first live 3D transmission, covering a concert by “Keane” from Abbey Road studios on April 2nd 2009.  We were appointed Sky’s 3D Partner in August of that year and embarked on a phase of Research and Development utilising a converted HD truck housing three 3Ality 3D rigs.  This phase of testing culminated in the first 3D live transmission of a Premiership Football match (Arsenal v Man United) to selected Pubs and Sports bars on the 30th January 2010.  We designed and commissioned the World’s first bespoke 3D truck in late 2009 and the truck was launched in April 2010.

We have continually demonstrated the ability and infrastructure to support these new ventures.  Not just in the design and build of new facilities but also in recruiting and training new staff with the skills required to deliver this technically demanding technology.  Since the launch of T18 in 2010 we have built three further 3D / 3G capable units to the same high specification.  Sky’s 3D channel went on air in October 2010 with the Ryder Cup from Celtic Manor using two of our 3D units and staffed by Telegenic 3D engineers.  In June 2010 we sent a 3D unit to the World Cup Finals in South Africa hosting matches from Durban, Cape Town and Port Elizabeth.  Since the launch of Sky’s domestic 3D channel we have covered over 100 Premiership matches, Live Opera Lucrezia Borgia and the Opening Ceremony of the London Olympics 2012.

To date, four of our existing units are 3D / 3G capable and all our trucks support formats from SD up to 1080i / 50.
