BSkyB orders 3D outside broadcast vehicle

by David Allen

The satellite broadcaster BSkyB has commissioned its first outside broadcast truck capable of filming in 3D.

The job of building these trucks was put out to tender by BSkyB and the winner was an established outside broadcast vehicle builder called Telegenic from High Wycombe.

The truck will be fitted out with seven dedicated 3DTV camera rigs which are expected to be provided by the US based camera builder 3ality.

The truck has been ordered so that BSkyB will be able to cover sporting and other live events for the Sky 3D Channel that is due to be launched during the early part of next year.

Although the truck will be used for 3D broadcasting, it will actually be made up of around ninety per cent HD equipment.
