The Championships Wimbledon was brought to the public for the first time, to nearly 200 theaters, in 3D; this was a very special event that occurred on Wimbledon’s 125th anniversary.
Maria Sharapova and Petra Kvitova filled the 3D screen for the ladies’ final of the third Grand Slam event of the year. Sharapova’s screams and the sounds of Kvitova pounding the ball were realistic, just as if the two women were actually playing the final in the theater room.
This was a breakthrough for technology, as the event was aired live, and in 3D, in theaters. Other sporting events have been aired in 3D, but this event was the most well-known, and the most successful, as it was aired in countries ranging from England to Uruguay.
