Arlington, Va. - The Consumer Electronics Association (
) said Tuesday it has started a new standards process for 3D glasses and is seeking proposal for 3D active eyewear using an infrared synchronized interface.
The CEA said it is encouraging interested parties to join the 3D Technologies Working Group, R4WG16.
"The expanding presence of 3DTV in the home makes the need for interoperable 3D glasses more urgent than ever," stated Brian Markwalter, CEA research and standards VP. "As the hub of technology industry innovation, CEA is the logical host for such a crucial effort. Industry participation will help meet consumer demand and expectations regarding 3D interoperability in the home."
Downloads of the formal Active Eyewear Standards IR Sync Request for Proposal (RFP), are available at the
or by contacting Alayne Bell at
, or (703) 907-5267, and should be submitted to the CEA by 5 p.m. EST, March 31.
After proposals have been submitted, R4WG16 will select the proposals that will become the basis for standardization. Creating a standard for 3D active eyewear glasses can help break down consumer barriers to purchasing 3DTVs, and increase the expansion of 3D into the home, CEA said.
