Editor’s note: Ben Cerny is an ESPN Graphics/Playback Producer. He’s covering the NBA playoffs with the 3D production team. They covered the Atlanta Hawks-Orlando Magic series; Friday, they will be adding another dimension to coverage of Game 3 of the Hawks-Chicago Bulls series ( 7 p.m. ET, ESPN, ESPN3.com, ESPN3D).

We also use 2D and 3D cameras side-by-side. The goal is to create more events where one production crew can service both a 2D and 3D broadcast.
We’ve executed it for boxing and college football.
Our Winter X Games shows shared a high percentage of such camera positions.
