It will be a red letter day in the history of consumer electronics this coming Wednesday night, March 24th, when New York’s two professional hockey teams, the New York Rangers and the New York Islanders skate against one another at the historic Madison Square Garden.
That’s because, it will mark the first time a National Hockey League game will be telecast in 3D, Multichannel News reports.
According to the story, by Multichannel’s longtime news maven Mike Reynolds, the 3D feed "will be offered to Cablevision MSG HD subscribers with 3D-compatible TV sets. The operator said it is in discussions with other carriers about carrying the HD contest."
Furthermore, according to the article, "The game will be shot using 3ality Digital’s image-capturing technology, which integrates with existing broadcast equipment to produce top-flight 3D imagery. 3ality Digital has behind a number of recent 3D sports productions, including BSkyB’s January Premiere League soccer broadcast; the first live 3D broadcasts of NFL and college football games shown in theaters; and the 2010 Sony Open golf tournament."
