A quartet of companies that comprise of Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and X6D Limited (also known as XPAND 3D) has announced that Royal Philips Electronics, Sharp Corporation, TCL Corporation and Toshiba Corporation have all together expressed support for activities that involve the “Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative”. This industry standardization will comprise of different types of infrared (IR) system protocols between 3D active shutter glasses and 3D displays, where these protocols were conjured in a joint-venture by Panasonic and XPAND 3D, merging with proprietary protocols of Samsung and Sony.
Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, and XPAND did announce their intent to work together on the development and licensing of Bluetooth enabled radio frequency (RF) system 3D active shutter glasses technology, where among them include RF system protocols between consumer 3D active shutter glasses as well as 3D displays including televisions, personal computers and projectors, not to mention 3D theaters with XPAND active shutter glasses.
It is expected that the license program for the Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative will begin soon. 3D synchronization emitters, 3D active shutter glasses or Bluetooth chip devices for such products will be able to get hold of a license to begin working on and rolling out devices which will take advantage of Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative technology. Needless to say, the Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative will involve the use of a distinct logo to tell it apart from the rest, while making it a whole lot easier for consumers to recognize interoperability among 3D active shutter products.
