Blu-ray brains create 3D taskforce

Uniform 3D Blu-ray standard incoming

Internet Security Threat Report 2014

The Blu-Ray Disc Association (BDA) has created a taskforce to ease the “integration of 3D technology into the Blu-ray Disc format”.

Its ultimate aim is to define a standard for stereoscopic 3D content on a Blu-ray Disc, but nothing’s yet been mentioned about how this will be achieved or when such a standard could come into force.

The BDA claimed that the format is “the ideal platform for bringing 3D technology to mainstream home entertainment”, thanks chiefly to its “flexibility and incomparable picture quality”. Its storage capacity will help too, we'd say.

Executives from the film industry, and from the consumer electronics and IT sectors, will make up the taskforce.

Blu-ray 3D films sold with cardboard red and blue glasses are already available. But it’s possible that the BDA taskforce will look towards higher quality options when defining the standard, such as shutter glasses. ®
