LAS VEGAS – The first demonstration of compatible active-shutter 3D glasses and 3D video components under the FullHD 3D Glasses Initiative standard, developed jointly by Xpand 3D and Panasonic, Samsung and Sony, are underway at international CES.
The FullHD 3D Glasses Initiative licenses RF- and IR-based communication protocols between consumer 3D active-shutter glasses and 3D displays with Xpand’s active-shutter technology. The glasses are designed to be compatible with any display device from any brand licensed by the initiative.
The license also includes multiple types of IR system protocols between 3D active-shutter glasses and 3D displays, ranging from those jointly developed by Panasonic and Xpand 3D, to the proprietary protocols of Samsung and Sony, respectively.
There are two types of licenses: one for TV/projector/emitters and one for 3D eyewear. Each license has three licensed technologies and several product categories to choose from. The license program includes a verification procedure for licensee products before the product is sold in the market. The verification program ensures the compliant products work seamlessly with other compliant products consumers own.
The four companies’ demo is on display in Xpand’s booth, 20231, in the South Hall’s lower level.
