CBC in 3D

CBC Television is the first Canadian network to broadcast in 3D, testing
several images as it prepares to launch a 3D documentary about Queen

Broadcaster Magazine reports:

“This morning’s test showed Her Majesty reviewing the Canadian naval fleet in Halifax, as well as attending Canada Day celebrations in Ottawa and the Queen’s Plate in Toronto-all in 3D.

“It’s exciting to be part of Canadian television history,” said Kirstine Stewart, interim executive vice-president, CBC English Services, who followed the experimental shoots closely and attended the Queen’s Plate filming. “Once again, the CBC is at the forefront of bringing the best in television programming to as many Canadians as possible.”


“Queen Elizabeth in 3D was led by Mark Starowicz, executive director of documentary programming, who assembled a special team of cameramen, producers, stereographers and editors who worked closely with Buckingham Palace to get close to the Queen. “We wanted to learn,” Starowicz said. “We wanted to be on the cutting edge of documentary production, and we wanted to make some history.”
