CableLabs Issues 3D Content Encoding Spec

CableLabs published a new Content Encoding Profiles 3.0 Specification that provides exact requirements for formatting or "panelizing" 3D content into a frame-compatible format for use by cable television systems.

"This spec release marks a great step in the commercialization of 3D TV because it is the first public specification that fully describes the coding and signaling for these top-and-bottom and side-by-side 3D video formats," said Tony Werner, CTO of Comcast.
