M-3DI 3D standard for Active-shutter Glasses used in 3D HDTV's.

Aiming for greater interoperability among 3D devices, XpanD 3D has started licensing an active-shutter standard developed with the help of Panasonic. The system, called M-3DI, has been licensed by Panasonic and is designed to allow users to buy a pair of XpanD active-shutter 3D glasses for a Panasonic TV and take them to other places, such as the cinema or a friend's house, that employ comparable systems. Other companies expected to get involved with the M-3DI standard are Changhong, Funai, Hisense, Hitachi, Sanyo, Seiko Epson, Sim2, Mitsubishi, Philips and Viewsonic.

CEA begins standards process for 3D glasses
The Consumer Electronics Association has launched a new standards process for 3D glasses. CEA seeks proposals for standardizing 3D active eyewear that uses an infrared (IR) synchronized interface from consumer-electronics (CE) manufacturers. Interested participants are encouraged to join the 3D Technologies Working Group, R4WG16. "The expanding presence of 3DTV in the home makes the need for interoperable 3D glasses more urgent than ever," said Brian Markwalter, CEA vice president of research and standards. "As the hub of technology industry innovation, CEA is the logical host for such a crucial effort. Industry participation will help meet consumer demand and expectations regarding 3D interoperability in the home." R4WG16 requests that interested parties in the CE industry download the formal Active Eyewear Standards IR Sync Request for Proposal (RFP) and return it to Alayne Bell by 5 p.m. Eastern time Thursday. To join the working group, contact Alayne Bell at (703) 907-5267
