M-3DI-A new standard for 3D active-shutter eyewear products to Create Compatibility among 3D TVs, 3D Projectors and 3D Cinemas
Panasonic and XPAND 3D have formulated M-3DI, a new standard for 3D active-shutter eyewear products that will bring about compatibility among 3D TVs, computers, home projectors and cinema projection. Many leading 3D technology providers for televisions, projectors and cinemas have agreed to participate in supporting the new standard. Licensing of the M-3DI technology will begin next month from M-3DI License Agent, providing a communication protocol between 3D active-shutter eyewear products and 3D-capable TVs, front projectors, computers and cinema systems (XPAND-compatible theaters). The technology will let consumers enjoy the immersive 3D experience across all types of compatible 3D displays as well as at movie theaters, with a single pair of 3D active-shutter eyewear.
The M-3DI standard will also assure consumers of comprehensive quality control in the creation of their 3D eyewear; Participants in the standard-making will publish the specification of the standard and will organize quality control testing and approval procedures.
