Panasonic, a well-known consumer electronics supplier, reportedly had proposed a standard for three-dimensional movies to the Blu-ray disc Association (BDA). The 3D technology has certain chances to catalyze a high-definition evolution, but the company will have to fight against the rivals in order to avoid the format war.

What Panasonic plans to introduce to the public is usual pseudo-3D imaging that requires additional glasses. The technology has never improved DVD, even though appropriate titles were, and still are, available and several companies have promoted those products. Nonetheless, Panasonic does believe into the technology, which may be improved, according to the company, going forward:

“Standards wars, patent monopolies and the like would seriously interfere with the widespread adoption of any 3D image standard. We developed a standard based on existing technology, specifically designed for easy acceptance, said Masayuki Kozuka, general manager in charge of storage device strategy, at AVC Networks Company of Panasonic, reports Tech-On web-site.

The red-blue/active shutter glasses-enabled 3D has been known for years, but now the major consumer electronics company reportedly wants to enter the same home-video market with the same technology, this time with Blu-ray.

“All we have to do is define a flag to identify image data, equipment and other elements supporting 3D imagery. We really don’t need any other major changes,” explained Hiroshi Miyai, director, high quality AV development center of Panasonic.

It is unclear whether “defining a flag” would result in another profile for Blu-ray disc players that will have to support, for instance, four video encoding engines, HDMI port with higher bandwidth, new breed of copyright protection technologies and other differences. It should be noted that in case for stereo 3D carrying higher-capacity Blu-ray discs are required, players will have to get new laser technology.

Other proposals for stereoscopic 3D technology for video includes specially designed displays, holograms and so on.
