Standardising 3D glasses
22 March 2011
The CEA has announced the launch of a new standards process for 3D glasses.
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) is seeking proposals for standardising 3D active eyewear that uses an infrared (IR) synchronised interface from consumer electronics (CE) manufacturers.
Interested participants are encouraged to join the 3D Technologies Working Group, R4WG16.
“The expanding presence of 3DTV in the home makes the need for interoperable 3D glasses more urgent than ever,” said Brian Markwalter, CEA Vice President of research and standards. “As the hub of technology industry innovation, CEA is the logical host for such a crucial effort. Industry participation will help meet consumer demand and expectations regarding 3D interoperability in the home.”
R4WG16 requests that interested parties in the CE industry download the formal Active Eyewear Standards IR Sync Request for Proposal (RFP), and return it to Alayne Bell at abell@CE.org by 5 p.m. EST, March 31, 2011. The RFP can be downloaded here.
Or, to join the 3D Technologies Working Group please contact Alayne Bell at abell@CE.org.
After proposals have been submitted, R4WG16 will select the proposals that will become the basis for standardisation. Creating a standard for 3D active eyewear glasses can help break down consumer barriers to purchasing 3DTVs, and increase the expansion of 3D into the home.
