Italy first to broadcast backwards compatible 3D

Italian viewers will be able to enjoy the free over-the-air content in 2D or 3D.  A new format created by a partnership of both private and public parties in Italy created a new format they're calling 3D Tile, which integrates a pair of 720p frames into a single 1080p frame, allowing reconstructed images to maintain their original resolution. More importantly, it lets viewers with traditional 2D televisions watch 3D content.
