3D technology sponsors include NEC, which is providing the 3D projector; RealD, which is providing 3D glasses and a silver screen; and Strong Ballantyne, which is managing the integration. Content is being provided by 3ality, ESPN, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America, NVIDIA and Sony. Content will be played at both 24fps and 60fps, depending on the content.
