2010 ESPN 3D NCAA College Football - Page 6

post #151 of 238
We have UCLA at Oregon this Thursday which should be great given that Oregon wants to keep it's number one rnaking.

Something has happened to the ESPN 3D broadcast guide that I get at this link:

http://espn.go.com/3d/schedule.html

I can see a scheduled event, but not which game the scheduled broadcast is covering. This is couple of weeks old now. Does anyone have another link?

Is there going to be a broadcast this Saturday?

Yeah - I noticed this last week. You can't see what teams are involved.

The year is 2010, and at this point, I don't want to go back to standard definition. While the 3D is a really cool viewpoint, and some of the camera angles are pretty amazing, without the HD visual quality, it just ain't worth it. ESPN needs to figure out another way to do this. Pronto

They are currently using 1280x720 TnB format. This is 1280x360 per eye.

The whole reason for using 720p TNB instead of 1080i SbS in to provide 60 fps content instead of 30 fps content for sporting events where horizontal motion frame rate is more important then vettical resoluiton detail.

Except this isn't true. Resolution makes much more of a difference vs framerate crap, as everyone who's watched content on ESPN 3D agrees.

Is there going to be a 3D game this Saturday? I wonder why ESPN can't post its schedule a week in advance? Do they wait to see the rankings before they make a final decision?
post #157 of 238
Game is tonight, Thurs. 10/21 at 9PM.
post #158 of 238
I know about tonight. The question remains: Is there going to be a game on Saturday?

Tonight is the scheduled 3d game of the week.

I don't know, my friend and I both thought the OSU/Wisconsin game looked great in action.

You know what.... I want to take back a bit of what I said a few posts back. I saw more of the Miami @ Clemson game today, and I've come away with a better impression of it. Some of the camera angles did seem to be "almost" HD. Some of the camera angles did look quite horrible. Very SD like. But not all of the camera angles were so lackluster. A few of them were pretty decent.

Also, when I was watching part of that game, they showed some highlights of some other college football action in 3D, and some of it was very, very impressive.

I still think ESPN should switch to TnB 1080i.

I have the Motorola DCX 3400 cble box. The tech when installed basically put it on to use 1080i. I switched it back to use NATIVE. Which is better for 3D? I would assume native, but it gets annoying when switching channels from a 1080i feed to a 720p feed.

I do 1080i output for everything and it doesn't help at all for ESPN 3D. My capture card is a PITA to change resolutions which is what I have to use for 3D Vision...

I tried tuning to the UCLA-Oregon game but I got a message that my TV is unable to display 720p. It is Samsung plasma PN 63C8000. What am I doing wrong? I had no trouble watching the U.S. Open.

Try going to like normal ESPN or something then back to ESPN 3D. I know there is something with DirecTV about resolution change issues for 3D but I don't remember exactly what to do since I have Comcast.

You need to call them and tell them. I call them and they don't seem to be aware of the issue. They need more people calling on the issue so they realize that it is a real problem. I always have to switch to HBO and then switch to the 3D channels for them to come in.
post #167 of 238
Did you put your TV in 3D mode and tell it you were receiving TnB 720p format?
The Open was in 1080i.

How do the ESPN broadcasts appear compared to Sony's USC-Ohio State demo?

The same, they are all sponsored by Sony
post #170 of 238
Any rumors for this week's game? Here's my vote is for USC vs. Oregon in the Rose Bowl. In the west that would be a big draw. I could end up with all my buddies showing up for that one. (limit to five since that's how many pair of glasses I have)

The ESPN 3D schedule shows a game for Saturday November 6 at 7pm, but it does not say which game. The D* onscreen guide doesn't have a game listed yet.

Perhaps the 3D crew needs a break and there will not be a broadcast in 3D Saturday October 30.

I've been annoyed with the display issues on the ESPN 3D site, so I tried something new. I did a "select all" and copied / pasted the data into an Excel spreadsheet. Viola! I was able to see that the game scheduled for November 6th is Arkansas vs. South Carolina.
post #173 of 238
November 6th game has been changed to Hawaii vs. Boise State (5:30PM EST).

November 13th game currently listed as Boise State vs. Idaho (but game is actually scheduled for Friday, Nov. 12th)

ESPN To Televise Fiesta Bowl In 3D

Contest Joins BCS Title Tilt In Being Available In Format

By Mike Reynolds

ESPN 3D will ring in the new year by televising the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl in the enhanced format.

The contest, which will air on Saturday, Jan. 1, at 8:30 p.m. (ET) from Glendale, Ariz., is the second Bowl Championship Series contest, slated for the 3D network, which will air the national championship game on Jan. 10. at 8:30 p.m., also from Glendale.

Elsewhere, ESPN 3D will showcase the blue turf, when it airs the Nov. 6 matchup between Hawaii visiting No. 4 Boise State for a 3:30 p.m. Six days later, Boise State will play at Idaho on at 9 p.m. This will mark the second and third time Boise State has appeared on the new network having played the first game this year on Sept. 6.

In addition to the games announced today, ESPN 3D also plans to televise the ACC Championship game on Saturday, Dec. 4.

Sony is the official sponsor of college football on ESPN 3D, and college football games televised on ESPN 3D will utilize Sony professional cameras.

Tried to watch the Boise State game, got a message saying it was $5.99. WTF?? When did ESPN3D go PPV?

Edit: Never mind, apparently my HR24 went insane. Red button fixed it.
