Another day, another broadcaster launching 3D. This time it's Japan's Sky Perfect JSAT
, which plans to flip the switch ahead of World Cup 3D
action in June. Of course this isn't the first 3D broadcasts for the country, but it's similar to rollouts planned by DirecTV here
and Sky in the UK, using side by side format
, h.264 compressed video to send the new broadcasts over existing boxes. Currently broadcasting 58 HD channels and still looking to add more
, it plans to kick off with two or three programs, mostly sports and live events.
