3D@Home Consortium issues home digital 3D requirements18 November 2009
The organisation has completed documents to be used in the creation of digital 3D standards by Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) working groups. The 3D@Home Consortium is focused on ensuring "the best possible home viewing experience as 3D technology and content moves into home entertainment".
The document ST2-01 3D Digital Interface Requirements enables the standards committees to have input from the wide cross-section of the industry catered to by 3D@Home. Meanwhile, the documents ST4-03 3D Active Shutter Glasses Database and ST4-04 3D Passive Glasses Database assist the standards committees in understanding the range of products that will be interacting with 3D systems.
The documents were requested by CEA working groups, with which 3D@Home liaises as part of its charter to "speed the commercialisation" of 3D home technology.
Mark Stockfisch, chair of 3D Task Force and co-chair of the 3D Technologies and Uncompressed A/V Digital Interface workgroups at CEA, commented: "CEA welcomes the submission of the documents from the 3D@Home Consortium. Having digital interface requirements and a glasses database will help CEA as it considers extension of its CEA-861 interface standard and [the] creation of new standards and recommended practices for stereoscopic eyeware interface and control."
The CEA is perhaps best known to global audiences as the producer of the International CES exhibition (pictured), the next instalment of which is due to take place in Las Vegas from 7-10 January.
