NHK Media Technology proposes new 3D broadcast standard
NHK Media Technology announced a proposal for Advanced Stereo 3D, a new 3D broadcast format at CES. This new format has the advantage of two separate left/right streams at full HD, instead of the current side-by-side squeezed format, which has half the horizontal resolution of full 1080p. This would also allow the same broadcast to be watched in 2D on 2D TV sets. According to this video from DigInfo, NHK has submitted this to ARIB, an organization that determines broadcast standards.
