Paper Abstract

This paper introduces 3D HDTV relay broadcasting experiments of 2002 FIFA World Cup Korea/Japan using a terrestrial and satellite network. We have developed 3D HDTV cameras, 3D HDTV video multiplexer/demultiplexer, a 3D HDTV receiver, and a 3D HDTV OB van for field productions. By using a terrestrial and satellite network, we distributed a compressed 3D HDTV signal to predetermined demonstration venues which are approved by host broadcast services (HBS), KirchMedia, and FIFA. In this case, we transmitted a 40Mbps MPEG-2 transport stream (DVB-ASI) over a DS-3 network specified in ITU-T Rec. G.703. The video/audio compression formats are MPEG-2 main-profile, high-level and Dolby Digital AC-3 respectively. Then at venues, the recovered left and right images by the 3D HDTV receiver are displayed on a screen with polarized beam projectors.
