Canal+ Spain has become the latest broadcaster, and the first in Spain, to announce plans for 3D broadcasting. Transmissions from a new channel, Canal+ en 3D, will take place on April 17 with a concert from the Spanish recording artist Enrique Bunbury.
Canal+ en 3D will be available on the iPlus Digital+ hybrid receiver, though the lack to date of 3D displays means that in reality the broadcast will be restricted to the selected few.
“3D technology is now an excellent vehicle to bring the highest quality content into the homes of our customers with the best technical performance. Canal+ is in line with technological development that has begun to open the world of film and offers an entirely new audiovisual experience, said director Miguel Salvat.
Bunbury’s performance will be based on his number one album Las consecuencias, which Canal+ believes will become a television event.
