Spain's first 3D transmissions

Two audiovisual groups from the South East of Spain have started 3D broadcasts atthe University of the Region of Murcia. These are the first pilot 3D transmissions over digital-terrestrial TV in the world, those conducting the tests have claimed.

In order to be able to get these signals the testers have needed an auto-stereoscopic monitor specifically made to show the images, although a screen adapter can also be used. Also needed is a specific receiver.

This, claim those responsible, is a pioneer project in the world. Elsewhere, Telefónica is carrying out 3D tests in Brazil but in this case on the internet and not on DTT.
