Throughout the Games period (July 23 to August 12), regular screenings will take place at three huge Super Hi-Vision displays at BBC Broadcasting House in London, at BBC Pacific Quay in Glasgow and at Bradford's National Media Museum.
Tickets for the screenings in London and Glasgow can be booked through the BBC ticketing website, while Bradford tickets are available through nationalmediamuseum.org.uk.
Teams at the three UK venues are now building special public viewing theatres, which can present the Super Hi-Vision on giant screens with special speaker rigs to recreate the 22.2 multichannel sound.
The BBC has previously tested Super Hi-Vision, but the London 2012 Olympics will mark the first time that this groundbreaking technology has been used to deliver such an extensive live and exceptional viewing experience.
Developed by Japan's public service broadcaster NHK, Super Hi-Vision offers an Ultra-HD television format that is 16 times sharper than a high definition picture as currently shown on the BBC HD channel.
In a blog post, the BBC's project executive for digital services Tim Plyming said that the effect of watching Super Hi-Vision is "of feeling like actually being at an event".
Plyming and his team have been filming a number of London landmarks, such as Tower Bridge, to create a special Super Hi-Vision film that will play ahead of the Games coverage.
"We have been using a brand new Super Hi-Vision camera and microphone and a specially adapted outside broadcast truck which have all been shipped from Japan to the UK," he said.
"At the same time in our R&D test studio (TC0) at BBC Television Centre in west London, a talented group of colleagues from the BBC's Research & Development have been working with NHK to build the first Olympic Super Hi-Vision production studio."
The Olympics has a history of being a testbed for new broadcast technologies, including the first TV broadcast at the Olympic Games in London in 1948, the first colour transmission at the 1968 Games, and the first HD broadcast in 1984.
The London 2012 Olympic Games will be the first to be captured in Super Hi-Vision - using the only Super Hi-Vision equipment available in the world.
Specialist cameras will be used to capture the action at the Olympic Stadium, Aquatic Centre, Velodrome and Basketball Arena.
Alongside highlight packages, the BBC will show live Super Hi-Vision coverage of the opening and closing ceremonies, the 100m final, and a whole day of action from the Aquatic Centre.
Alongside the UK big screens, viewing theatres for the London 2012 Super Hi-Vision coverage will also be placed in Tokyo and Fukushima in Japan, and Washington DC in the United States.
