THX Certification Goes 3D

Posted Wed Aug 11, 2010 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

In combination with BluFocus, THX has created standards and certification for 3D Blu-ray discs.

It was only a matter of time until THX got into the 3D space, but it's there now. 3D Blu-ray discs being tested by THX will be held to a number of different standards.

THX-BluFocus AV Certification is the sort of stuff you're used to seeing from THX. It ensures that the detail of both audio and video haven't been lost in the transfer.

THX-BluFocus Interoperability ensures that you'll be able to play your disc in both 2D and 3D on any Blu-ray player around. Over 100 Blu-ray players will be tested during the process, including Blu-ray players from different reigons.

THX-BluFocus Creative Certification is probably the most important when it comes to 3D presentations. This is the process where THX testers make sure that the 3D is working right. They ensure that background elements don't pop to the foreground and make sure that subtitles are readable.
