The public broadcaster will also deliver 3D coverage of the opening and closing ceremonies and a highlights package at the end of each day. 3D content will be available via the BBC’s HD channel on all platforms.
The coverage is one of a number of 3D trials being undertaken by the BBC. Last year it aired the men’s and ladies’ finals of the Wimbledon Championships in 3D as well as the final of Strictly Come Dancing.
Kim Shillinglaw, head of BBC 3D, said: “We have always said we believe some of 2012 should be captured in 3D, and we’re delighted to confirm our offer to audiences in the UK, providing them with a new way of getting close to some of the key moments from the London 2012 Olympic Games.”
