3D Glasses Standard is in the Works

Posted Thu Mar 10, 2011 at 09:00 AM PST by Dick Ward

The Consumer Electronics Association has started work on a new standards project.

With every new technological advance comes a divergence in methods, and 3D is no different. The potential advantages of being the number one source for 3D has spurred on competition, but in some cases it also caused big problems, such as a lack of compatibility.

"The expanding presence of 3DTV in the home makes the need for interoperable 3D glasses more urgent than ever," says CEA's research and standards VP Brian Markwalter. "Industry participation will help meet consumer demand and expectations regarding 3D interoperability in the home."

The CEA is accepting proposals until March 31, after which the basis for standardization will be determined.
