3D TV Makers Remove Their Blinkers; Start Work on Standard 3D Glasses Format

By Gary Cutlack on at

Sony, Samsung, Panasonic and 3D technology specialist Xpand 3D are moving forward quickly with plans to create a single format for active shutter 3D glasses, with many more TV makers joining the standards licensing scheme.

The consortium now has its own umbrella web site which it's bravely opted to call Full HD 3D Glasses (which should see it do very well for Google traffic), which underlines its ambition to see 3D users owning one single pair of magic glasses that work on their home 3D TVs, PC monitors, and can even be taken out to watch 3D films on cinema screens.

The licensing programme for the standardised technology is now underway, with the likes of Mitsubishi, Hitachi, Philips, Sharp, Toshiba and ViewSonic all having "expressed their support" for the initiative. [Full HD 3D Glasses via Techradar]
