I finally got to see my very first taste of college football in 3D. I just got done watching MNF, it was Tennessee and Jacksonville. After that game was over, I checked n3D, just to see what was on. To my surprise, they were showing a repeat of a Miami @ Clemson college football game. When I had switched over to that channel, there was only about 4 minutes left in the game. I quickly grabbed my 3D glasses and watched the last 4 minutes.
The first thing I have to say about it, is WHERE THE HECK DID ALL THE RESOLUTION GO?
Man, seriously, watching it in 3D, it seems like it's standard definition. It really doesn't look like High Def at all.
The other issue I had, was that either something was wrong with my Samsung glasses, or the emitter built into my TV, or something was wrong with this rebroadcast, because on certain camera angles, it just seemed like the view was wrong. I thought for sure that the sync was on the wrong eye. So, I went into my Samsung menu and clicked on picture correction, but that just made it worse, so I came to the conclusion that it was on the right eye, but just something was either wrong with my glasses, or the broadcast was screwed up.
When the game was over, it showed this Direct TV 3D logo, and that seemed perfectly fine. Also, the eye thing was only a problem with certain camera angles, so maybe it was something with the broadcast. Some of the camera angles were perfectly fine.
Still, the resolution was a joke. This does not look like High Definition at all. I'm almost embarrased to invite people over to see a college football game, because while the game might be in 3D, and that's pretty cool, the problem is, that it's like going back to standard definition because the resolution is so low. I'm not sure the tradeoff is worth it for more than 20 minutes of just wanting to see what it's like in 3D.
I watched a bunch of World Cup Soccer, and that also didn't really seem to be high-def to me. This college football though, seems worse to me for some reason.
