SAN JOSE, CALIF.: The [email protected] Consortium recently launched a new
Web site aimed at consumers. 3DUniversity.net
covers 3D TV sets, Blu-ray players, cell phones cameras, camcorders and
eyewear, as well as TV content, movies and special events.
The [email protected] Consortium said the purpose of the site is to “debunk many of the
myths circulating around 3D and give a glimpse into the future of home 3D
entertainment.” Site content comes from consortium members as well as “a large
group of 3D academics and stereoscopic scientists.”
The non-profit consortium was formed two years ago by companies intent on
commercializing 3D video technology and getting it into homes. Members include
Sony, Samsung, Intel, SES, Turner, ESPN, Sharp, THX, LG Electronics ,
Technicolor, IMAX, Disney, Fraunhofer, Motorola, Sensio and Cisco among others.
“A critical part of our mission is to educate both professionals and consumers
on 3D and how it is made, distributed and displayed,” said Heidi Hoffman,
managing director of [email protected] Consortium. “
is one of our first efforts to provide information directly to the consumer.”
