In a further indication of its commitment to the new technology, Time Warner Cable is to offer 3D TV to selected markets in its coverage of the 92nd PGA golf championship.
In addition to Time Warner Cable offering the entire tournament in 2D HD on TNT and CBS, Turner Sports and the PGA of America will provide 3D coverage of the action from holes 12 and 17 during the tournament.
The 3D production will be based on eight specifically designed cameras for 3D that the company says will provide a unique look at course action and give golf fans a one-of-a-kind visual experience to watch the world's best golfers play the course's challenging Par 3's. In order to experience the PGA Championship in 3D, viewers will need to invest in a 3D TV with matching 3D glasses and a compatible Time Warner Cable HD or HD/DVR set-top box connected to their TV with an HDMI cable.
"Providing this 3D telecast of the PGA Championship is just another step in our commitment to delivering innovative viewing experiences. We look forward to presenting more 3D content and other unique viewing opportunities to our customers," explained David Proper, Vice President of Programming for Time Warner Cable.
