Put on your 3D Vision glasses because the Women’s Singles Final and Men’s Singles Final US Open matches will be streaming in full 3D via the official US Open website.

Last year’s 3D production of the 2010 US Open Tennis Championships – the first world-wide 3D broadcast of a major tennis tournament – was honored with a 2010 Emmy Award for technical achievement. This year’s expanded 3D broadcast coverage goes all-court with several new 3D-specific camera positions designed by the telecast partners, providing the best 3D perspectives. Capturing the action is a fleet of 10 broadcast 3D cameras and a high-speed 3D replay system. The US Open will also use a pre-production model of Panasonic’s new 3DP1 handheld Full HD 3D professional camcorder (available later this fall)  to provide match and grounds coverage for the telecast.
