Mobile phones are ready for 3D TV

Although three-dimensional viewing hasn’t taken over our cinemas and televisions, an EU-funded project could see it appearing on mobile phones sooner than you might think.

It’s now over 100 years since the first 3D viewing experience was created by British film-maker William Friese-Greene. The viewer looked through a ‘stereoscope’ to combine the two images… and even today, most 3D video, film and TV experiences need special glasses.

Atanas Gotchev, who’s the scientific coordinator of the Mobile3DTV project, says the smaller screen used by a mobile phone means the viewing conditions don’t need to be as precise as they are for cinema… and that means less-exacting technical requirements.

His project is using the existing Digital Video Broadcasting – Handheld (DVB-H) standard and employs an ‘auto-stereoscopic’ display, which means it creates a 3D image without the need to wear glasses. So all we need now is for broadcasters to start creating 3D content for us to watch.
