3D TV for Space SpaceDaily

With a live transmission from its International Space Station User Information Centre in Noordwijk (the Netherlands), ESA and German company TMP will demonstrate a new technique for shooting, recording and transmitting 3D TV images. The stereoscopic TV images will be transmitted live from Noordwijk to Berlin via a Eutelsat satellite and projected onto a large screen. Wearing polarised filter glasses, spectators will be able to follow Merbold’s explanations in 3D. This is the first ever public transmission using this system and will also demonstrate an ESA operational capability for video production/transmission of spaceflight-related content in 3D.
