I remember the 3-D movies from when I was a kid where you had to wear paper glasses with red and blue lenses. The movies really weren’t that impressive, not to mention they were blurry and just didn’t look that cool. Modern 3-D films like Beowulf on the other hand are fantastic with clarity that rivals normal films and great 3-D effects.

The Society of motion Picture and Television Engineers (SMPTE) says that it has formed a committee to define the parameters for the mastering of 3-D films and more for home viewing. The goal of the committee is to define a standard that can display 3-D content on all fixed devices in the home regardless of the delivery channel. This standard will pave the way for 3-D broadcasts in the home from movies, TV channels and cable providers.

"Digital technologies have not only paved the way for high quality 3-D in the theaters, they have also opened the door to 3-D in the home," explained SMPTE Engineering Vice President Wendy Aylsworth. "In order to take advantage of this new opportunity, we need to guarantee consumers that they will be able to view the 3-D content they purchase and provide them with 3-D home solutions for all pocketbooks."
