DVB-3DTV specification approved

The DVB-3DTV specification has got the DVB’s seal of approval is for both streaming 3D through an HDMI cable or straight from a built-in tuner and decoder. subtitles over 3D are also part of the spec document.


This is by no means the last step in approval, as it has to now go to the European Telecommunications Standards Institute (ETSI) for formal standardisation, but it does mean that the UK is thinking seriously about its 3D future.

What the specification does confirm is that it is for ‘frame compatible plano-stereoscopic’ 3D, which is similar to how Sky currently uses for its Sky 3D channel.
