Quick Post: 3D Television Groups Convene, Hope to Reach 3DTV Industry Standard

Hi everyone, Michael here. has an interesting article detailing the various working groups that have been established to try to come up with industry standards for stereoscopic television systems. According to the article there are at least four separate groups working to define the technical, business, and legal challenges involved in establishing such standards.

Among the groups are the
Entertainment Technology Center (ETC) at the University of Southern California--which helped come up with the Digital Cinema Specification (DCI) standards--along with The Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE).

It's very exciting to hear that there is so much will and movement towards bringing 3D content into the home. Indeed, at the behest of several studios, ETC is accelerating the construction of a lab where the studios can test out their 3D content on the newest displays and players.

2009 will surely be the year when everyone will be clamoring for 3D capable HDTV's. Let us hope that they get the standards sorted out by then!
