Filming in 3D
3D has added a whole new dimension to TV and it starts from the way it's filmed.
Camera positions have been updated with more low level shots and new angles designed to show depth and perspective.
3D filming starts with recording content the way that our eyes see it ? from two different perspectives. Two HD cameras are used to take aligned left and right images of the chosen scene so what you see at home is exactly what the cameraman sees.
Taking images to a new level
3D requires more production staff than traditional HD shoots.
A stereographer works closely with the director, and each camera has a convergence operator as well as a cameraman.
"Dance performances lend themselves quite spectacularly to 3D. The scale and enormity of some of these pieces come to life in a way that's never been done before on UK screens", says John Cassy, Director of Sky Arts and Head of Sky 3D content strategy.
