The one-day workshop focused on 3D technologies for cinema and television environments and efforts to provide a comfortable viewing experience. Thierry Borel, in addition to representing Technicolor R&I, presented both 3D@Home Consortium and DVB initiatives concerning the future of 3DTV. Technicolor is a founding member for both 3D@Home Consortium and DVB.
Thierry Borel also participated to a panel session related to the necessity of standards for 3DTV.
The 3D@Home Consortium was formed in 2008 with the mission to speed the commercialization of 3D into homes worldwide and provide the best possible viewing experience by facilitating the development of standards, roadmaps and education for the entire 3D industry - from content, hardware and software providers to consumers.
Industry leaders from all segments of the supply chain have joined together to meet the goals, including: 3D content creators, developers and editors, broadcasting and distribution companies, software, hardware and workflow tool manufacturers, standards bodies, and research and educational institutions.
The Digital Video Broadcasting Project (DVB) is an industry-led consortium of around 250 broadcasters, manufacturers, network operators, software developers, regulatory bodies and others in over 35 countries committed to designing open technical standards for the global delivery of digital television and data services. Services using DVB standards are available on every continent with more than 500 million DVB receivers deployed.
