3D Net to offer a 3D look at Indianapolis 500

MUMBAI: US 3D television channel 3net, the joint venture 3D network from Sony, Discovery and Imax, will give viewers a look at the events and personalities involved in the historic 100th running of the Indianapolis 500.

The announcement was made by 3net president and CEO Tom Cosgrove. The one hour special, ‘On The Inside Line: The Indy 500‘, will include the world‘s first 3D coverage of the event, including an in-depth look at the event preparations and the action of race day as seen through the eyes of drivers -- Tony Kanaan, Helio Castroneves, Simona de Silvestro, Will Power and more.

Cosgrove said,"We plan to fully leverage our unprecedented access to this historic event – capturing the pageantry of the 100th Anniversary and the emotion and intensity of race day – to bring audiences the most compelling 3D programming event possible. 3net is dedicated to breaking new ground in creating programming genres that are most compelling in 3D, and this first-ever ‘sportumentary‘ about America‘s greatest race further emphasizes that commitment."

The show will give viewers a look at the spectacle of the Indianapolis 500, starting with a look back at the history of the greatest spectacle in racing, including 3D coverage of pre-race fanfare such as the Festival Parade, Pole Day, Bump Day and Carb Day. The day of the race, 3net will be in the garage for last minute preparations, team meetings and the pre-race ceremony.
During the race, 3net will follow the action from the unique point of view of the featured drivers, with 3D cameras in the pits and around the crews supporting the Castroneves, Kanaan and Hinchcliffe teams as they monitor the race, strategise pit stops and advise their drivers. Additional 3D cameras featured on-car, on-track and around the race will compliment the comprehensive 3D experience.
