HDMI specifications are typically fairly private documents.  They’re reserved for those who are making products, have paid a licensing fee and signed an adopter agreement.  That’s true with HDMI 1.4 as well, to a point.

The folks over at HDMI Liscensing LLC have released the 3D portion of the HDMI specifications to anyone that wants to read it.  Even the general public can jump on the HDMI website and request a PDF copy through email.  It’s not exactly a great read, but you can get it.

The important takeaway from all this is that we may be completely avoiding the format wars that make adoption so difficult.  The battle between HD-DVD and Blu-ray certainly slowed what could have been a quick changeover to high definition discs, but 3D may be nice and easy.

As HDMI’s Steve Venuti puts it, “The HDMI Consortium recognizes the importance of standardized 3D formats… as the mainstream adoption of 3D is gaining momentum and content providers define and expand their 3D roadmaps, HDMI is ready to support this major market development.”
