Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative standardizes Active 3D Glasses for 2012

Today 3D TV makers Panasonic, Samsung, Sony announced to collaborate together with X6D Limited (XPAND 3D) to develop a new technology standard for 3D active glasses. The project is called Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative.

With this new agreement, the companies intend to work together on the development and licensing of radio frequency (RF) system 3D active glasses technology, including RF system protocols between consumer 3D active glasses and 3D displays such as televisions, personal computers, projectors and 3D theaters with XPAND active shutter glasses.

The standardization will also include multiple types of infrared (IR) system protocols between 3D active glasses and 3D displays, ranging from the protocols jointly developed by Panasonic and XPAND 3D, to the proprietary protocols of Samsung and Sony, respectively.

The license of today’s newly announced Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative is targeted to be released in September 2011, at which time the development of new standardization-applied active 3D glasses will begin. Universal glasses with the new IR/RF protocols will be made available in 2012, and are targeted to be backward compatible with 2011 3D active TVs. 

Through this initiative, the four companies aim to widely introduce universal active 3D glasses to the market.

The Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative is a great thing and should have been done from the beginning. It is though always the same with new technology. It takes time until companies come together and standardize the necessary components to actually make it work for consumers. A good thing is that the companies say that the new universal 3D glasses will work on the 2011 3D TVs. I hope they will come through on this. 

LG is prominently absent from the Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative. There focus is really only on passive 3D glasses with their 3D Cinema TV line.
