XpanD and Panasonic Team on New 3D Standard  Print E-mail

The Consumer Electronics Association is looking for a new 3D standard and the folks at XpanD think they've got just the thing. The company has teamed with Panasonic to create a standard in 3D glasses that would help to make compatibility issues a thing of the past. Their new glasses would use two-way technology that would let the glasses communicate with your home theater, and adjust themselves based on the brand and model of your setup.

Panasonic isn't the only other company on board.  Mitsubishi, Philips, Sanyo, Funai, Epson and others are all signing on for  XpanD's new approach to 3D.  "The licensing starts today for the founding partners," says XpanD officer Ami Dror.  "We expect, starting tomorrow, other big-name companies to join in and start licensing the technology." In terms of the CEA's upcoming standard, Dror says that XpanD 3D has proposed its new standard to the CEA.  "With all these established companies behind it we expect," he adds, "or at least hope, this is the technology chosen."
