Sony, Panasonic and Samsung have stated that they will collectively be developing new standards for 3D glasses. The three Asian companies will be working with European technology firm X6D Limited in an effort to enable “a better consumer experience across products.”
The joint project, known as the Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative, will “help further drive consumer adoption and understanding of active 3D – the technology that provides the clearest and most immersive 3D experience available,” said Jurack Chae, vice president, R&D Team, Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics.
Up until now, the majority of active 3D glasses have been made to be specific to a brand or TV. It’s good to see that some of the major technology companies are putting their hands into making the 3D viewing process more accessible for consumers.
The initiative’s license is set to be released next month while the universal glasses are expected to be available to the public in 2012. The glasses, however, will be compatible with this year’s 3D active TVs according to Sony.
