HDTV Ready for Third Dimension
A new 3D HDTV system designed by NTS, NHK Technical Services, will be ready for deployment some time next year, according to Stuart Uleman, NTS senior engineer and media planning for the system.
At the NAB show the company demonstrated the technology on a number of flat panel plasma screens as well as a 202-inch DLP projector system. Each projector had a polarizing filter in front of it to isolate the light for the glasses.
“Each projector is a regular 1080p projector,” says Uleman. “But for the TV sets the HD is encoded for 3D and the sets have a polarizing filter in the front which creates the 3D effect.”
