Panasonic Australia provided broadcasters with a five-minute clip of scenic views for 3D test transmissions, which was screened from 12AM – the first time 3D content has been beamed to homes in Australia. Test transmissions will run for a period of nine weeks and include a number of upcoming sporting events.
