The first time I saw HD and Blu-ray tech was at CES a few years back. This year at CES 3D technology will be big and major companies like AMD will be showing off 3D Blu-ray. The Blu-ray Disc Association has announced the final specifications for 3D Blu-ray are complete.




The specs were a group effort with Hollywood studios, consumer electronics makers and more. The spec will allow the delivery of 1080p resolution to each eye. The design of the specs allows 3D Blu-ray to work on LCD or plasma TVs with any available 3D technology.


The best news is that the PS3 will be 3D capable so we should have a firmware update coming to enable that at some point. The specs call for encoding 3D using the MVC codec, an extension to the ITU-T H.264 AVC codec already used by Blu-ray players. 3D discs will be playable in 2D on standard players and 2D discs will be playable in 3D players. Equipment with 3D Blu-ray support is expected in 2010.
