The Challenges Of 3D Support In The STB (2010)

By Kevin Murray, Simon Parnall, Ray Taylor, NDS

Distribution of stereoscopic 3DTV has been demonstrated using existing, deployed HD technology providing excellent quality pictures. This shows how easily 3DTV can be made available through broadcast channels as consumer displays reach the market and 3D content becomes readily available.

However, a full broadcast service consists of more than just the video—the STB and the features it provides are key parts of the user experience.

This paper looks at several areas of key functionality that the STB provides. It discusses the changes required both in the STB software and the transmissions on which it relies, all whilst utilizing existing HD hardware. Through these discussions we explore how STBs can be updated or extended to support a seamless, high quality 3D aware service.
