BBC facing tough choice over 3D Olympics coverage
The BBC faces a dilemma over whether to screen any of the action from the 2012 Olympics in 3D, the corporation's head of 3D and high definition (HD) has admitted.
Danielle Nagler has previously insisted the BBC would not cover any sport in 3D, but was persuaded to change her mind for the men's and ladies' singles finals at the 2011 Wimbledon Championships, which took place last weekend (July 2nd and 3rd).
However, she is unsure whether the organisation will air action from the London Olympics in 3D, instead insisting the broadcaster needs to assess how valuable this coverage would be to UK audiences, reports Broadband TV News.
Comparing 3D and 2D coverage, Ms Nagler commented: "Whatever the final 3D offer that emerges it will clearly be more limited and we have to consider where we could accommodate that in terms of our broadcast offer."
Meanwhile, her colleague Roger Mosey - director of London 2012 at the BBC - insisted the corporation has always agreed that some of the Games should be captured in 3D.
