Fox Sports beats Nine to first 3D sports broadcast

Socceroos’ farewell match against New Zealand to trump State of Origin 3D broadcast

Fox Sports stole Channel Nine's thunder yesterday by announcing that it will broadcast the first 3D sporting event on Australian television next week.

The Socceroos' last home match before the 2010 FIFA World Cup — a friendly against New Zealand at the MCG — will be filmed using Sony 3D cameras and production technology. It was expected that Channel Nine's footage of the first State of Origin match on 26 May would be the first 3D sports broadcast in Australia; Fox has beaten the network by two days.

Channel Nine will still hold the honour of being the first broadcaster to display 3D television footage on Australian free-to-air television.

“As Australia’s leading sports broadcaster, Fox Sports is proud to be making history by delivering an Australian television first to viewers around the country,” said Fox Sports Chief Executive David Malone. "This live and exclusive Socceroos 3D experience is FOX SPORTS next step in an on-going quest to take the sports broadcasting experience to exciting new levels for all Australian fans."

Coverage of the Socceroos’ farewell match against New Zealand will commence Monday 24 May on Fox Sports 3D (Channel 200) at 7.20pm AEST.

STYLISTIC Q702

First impression on unpacking the Q702 test unit was the solid feel and clean, minimalist styling.

For work use, Microsoft Word and Excel programs pre-installed on the device are adequate for preparing short documents.

LIFEBOOK UH574

The Fujitsu LifeBook UH574 allowed for great mobility without being obnoxiously heavy or clunky. Its twelve hours of battery life did not disappoint.

STYLISTIC Q702

The screen was particularly good. It is bright and visible from most angles, however heat is an issue, particularly around the Windows button on the front, and on the back where the battery housing is located.

STYLISTIC Q702

My first impression after unboxing the Q702 is that it is a nice looking unit. Styling is somewhat minimalist but very effective. The tablet part, once detached, has a nice weight, and no buttons or switches are located in awkward or intrusive positions.
