HP’s Interest in Stereoscopic 3D Technologies and the 3D Consortium

March 27th, 2010 · 3 Comments · General 3D News

Have you heard about the 3D Consortium? I certainly haven’t, or at least up until a few days ago. It seems that HP was a founding member of the 3D Consortium – an organization with a goal to promote using the stereoscopic 3D technologies the right way, no matter what type of the content or the medium. HP and the members of the 3D Consortium are trying to overcome the technology challenges that are currently standing in the way of Stereoscopic 3D content in the form of games, photos, movies and so on to become mainstream. The idea is not only to help drive the technology for that, but also to achieve quality 3D content produced the right way and of course to promote the adoption of industry wide 3D standards. However, looking at the current members of the 3D Consortium I can say that the focus at the moment is mainly on 3D video and movie productions, but I suppose this organization can be extended much more… it just needs a little bit of promoting, and that is something that seems to be lacking at the moment. Besides HP, the current members of the 3D Consortium include NCM Media Networks, Walt Disney Pictures, Imageworks, NBA, Mark Lewis Radio Pictures and DreamWorks Animation.

    Bloody are they the same as http://www.3dathome.org/
    3d@Home consortium, I’m sure there are a lot more members
    setting standards than that at http://www.3dathome.org/

    This ‘alliances hell’ always reminds me South Park:

    – Then accept our answer to the Great Question, and we will withdraw.
    Cartman: What is the Great Question?
    – What atheists should call themselves.
    – Unified Atheist League is the most logical name.
    – Unified Atheist Allianace makes more sense.
    – No! Allied Atheist Alliance! That way it has three A’s! That is the logical choice!
    – So be it. We cannot agree; prepare to die.
