BBC announces its experiment to broadcast the 100m finals and other events in a picture quality that claims to be 16 times better than HDTV.

The BBC is considering plans to broadcast the 100 metres final of the London Olympics in 3D, as well as trying out a new technology that delivers picture quality said to be 16 times better than HDTV.
