Intended to promote the further use of this format worldwide, the new recommendations are being submitted to administrations for accelerated approval, the UN body said. ITU?s Radiocommunication Sector (ITU-R) has developed the standards ? or recommendations ? in collaboration with experts from the television industry, broadcasting organizations, and regulatory institutions in its Study Group 6. The ITU-R recommendations focus on 3DTV program production and broadcasting in the two formats that are in use worldwide: the ‘720p’ and the ‘1080i/p HDTV’ environments. Recommendations were also agreed on the digital interfaces used in studios for 3DTV program production, and on the general requirements for 3DTV. ITU-R Study Group 6 also agreed a recommendation for the methods to evaluate the quality of 3DTV images, which relates to three aspects, or quality factors: picture quality, depth, and comfort levels. David Wood, chairman of ITU-R Working Party 6C (WP 6C), said, “These rcommendations will be of great value to those who make and distribute 3DTV programs today and in the future. They will make the 3DTV world more comfortable for the media community, and will surely encourage the success and further development of 3DTV.? The director ITU?s Radiocommunication Bureau Fran?ois Rancy noted, ?The future of the media looks extremely exciting with options like 3DTV. We can and should contribute all we can to the success of such systems. I once again congratulate Study Group 6 for their outstanding work.? ]]>
