SCTE assessing 3D standardisation

February 24, 2009

The Society of Cable Telecommunications Engineers (SCTE) has confirmed that its American National Standards Institute (ANSI)-accredited SCTE Standards Program has begun to investigate the standardisation required for the carriage of next generation 3D content on cable networks. The SCTE Engineering Committee, which oversees the Society's development of technical standards covering all aspects of cable networks, has approved a project to examine the delivery of 3D content over cable networks. The new project, '3D over Cable', will focus on identifying necessary or desirable changes to existing SCTE standards, including transport protocols, to facilitate the provision of 3D content by cable operators.
