CEA Considering 3D Standards
The Consumer Electronics Association on Wednesday announced the formation of a group meant to look into the idea of standardizing three dimensional home video. The group, called the 3D Video Discovery Group, will meet for the first time in October at CEA’s Technology & Standards Fall Forum in Las Vegas.
CEA had earlier this week announced a group to investigate standards for portable and handheld devices; that group is also set to meet for the first time at the October event.
“Currently, movies are being produced and shown in 3D in cinemas with advances in digital cinema improving the experience,” CEA vice president of Technology & Standards Brian Markwalter said as part of the announcement. “Pre-packaged content and games have the storage and processing power to deliver 3D video, and televisions are available today that can render 3D content. Standards ensuring 3D content is usable to the maximum extent by consumers will benefit the industry.”
