2012 BCS National Championship Game on ESPN 3D

post #1 of 44
Thread Starter 
I watched the first quarter of the BCS National Title Game on ESPN 3D. The picture looked fine, but I really noticed an audio lag. What are your thoughts?

Yeah it looks good. Yeah I noticed the audio lag also. I noticed it the other day watching basketball. Maybe has something to do with being live and in 3D?

I never noticed any audio lag via Comcast in Detroit.

I was watching it via FIOS and didn't think the picture looked that good. Seemed to be much lower resolution than the regular HD channel. I have the Moto QIP7100 2 box - not sure how good that is. Was watching on my Acer H9500BD on a 100" inch screen, 3d blu-rays look great on it.

I ended up watching it on the normal HD channel.

Yes, 50% less resolution. That's how 3D works.

I saw the game on a 55" LG w/passive stereo, via Comcast Detroit. Looked pretty good I thought. Only TV speakers, did not notice any audio issues.

Watched on a 73" mits dlp via Directv. Definitely noticed the audio lag. The slow motion replays were awesome! The rest of the broadcast was typical for broadcast 3d with a lack of detail and brightness due to the resolution loss.

had the lag here as well... fios in south jersey...

i thought it looked pretty darn good on a 110" screen... the loss of resolution is well worth the gain of 3d... there were some times where i felt like i really was there...

@njfoses... the loss of brightness isn't due to the lower resolution...

general comment: i think they need to look at a 3d broadcast a bit differently than a 2d one... the illusion of reality would be stronger if they just stuck with the main cam almost all the time, with very occasional shots from other angles... but that's just my opinion...

I don't have cable and only use 3D for BD movies but the idea of football in 3D is almost worth the price of admission.

Speaking of football in 3d, is the Super Bowl going to be broadcast in 3d this year?

I was DirecTV as well. I tried to turn the sync up on my receiver, but I couldn't get rid of it. I eventually went back to the HD channel.

Nope.

Saw it and noticed the lag, too, here in Alabama. I thought the scenes of basketball were more effective than the football shots. The perspective seemed wrong on the football field too often. For example, several times it appeared as if the players were running six inches above the field surface. Sometimes a shot of players milling around looked like they should have passed one another with the other one in front. Either the lens was distorting the distance or the distance between the cameras was not correct for the zoom level lots of the time.

Football games may be the hardest challenge for 3D broadcasts to get perfect. I love 3D and want it to work a little better than this.

Dang, wish I would have known it was on ESPN 3D!

Couldn't agree more. I thought it was fantastic! Even though the game itself sucked

The commercials on the 3D broadcast were all for 3D materials - either upcoming 3D movies, 3D Blu Rays, or 3D broadcasts. That Adventure Island one sure looked cool to me.

Basketball sometimes goes much closer to the minimum distances for 3D, and sometimes the ghosting is a little bit worse, but I am still hoping to see my wildcats in 3D this year.

I'm just glad they used the same audio feed as the main broadcast. The 3D broadcasts usually gets stuck with the D- announce team.

I thought the FIOS 3D for the BCS game was poor. There was ghosting. I even changed the resolution to 720P which helped. I have a JVC-X9 projector and all other sources have a perfect 3D picture. IS it the problem with FIOS or ESPN? There seems to be a motion lag which is causing some ghosting. If there is no motion the picture is perfect.

There were some instances where the announcers were talking about replays that were not being shown on the 3D feed. Other than that, I agree.

I was blown away with the full 3D movie trailers.

I wish they had a channel that was full of this cheap content, including the Titanic and Star Wars trailers.

Much better then a crappy on demand that is full of guitar sessions and poker games.

me too... i dunno how many times i've watched all the various espn "clip" shows...

i think i'll pass on the "adventure island" one though... that one looks like a nightmare in waiting...

hmm... the only ghosting i got was on static images, none on motion....

fios here.

I don't think we can assume FIOS is uniformly the same everywhere. There are a number of different receivers and DVRs. I have the Moto 6416 with a Mitsu DLP 65" TV. No ghosting (no surprise), yes audio lag, and loved the commercials. I did notice a couple of times, as mentioned earlier, where the announcers are mentioning a replay that we are not seeing.

AMEN about that last part.

That's the problem with the current state of frame compatible formats like side-by-side and top/bottom.

Sensio's just announced 3DGo! VOD can broadcast full HD resolution. Hopefully they will be able to expand it to cable broadcasts at some point.

"Sensio claims its lossless "hi-fi" compression will deliver full HD 3D (1080p on both eyes) on a broadband connection of only 2 Mbps, average for an American home, and that a two-hour movie would be about 2 Gb, so not to run afoul of new monthly caps on data plans."

Lossless compared to what? And 1080p at 2 Mbps? Ummm, no.
