Yea I'm not sure how they plan to implement that. The other four Digital Center control rooms would have to be outfitted as fully VizRT, (like ESPNEWS and Sportscenter) which carries a hefty pricetag. VIZs can run 50K per engine and you're easily talking 12 or more engines to provide three discreet channels per control room which is what they have now with the existing Dekos, though with rumors that AVID is phasing out their Deko line, ESPN may make this switch soon or look to ORAD, Chyron or Harris for a less expensive solution for realtime 3D.
