Panasonic, Samsung, Sony, and Xpand join forces for new 3D glasses standard

The four giant Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and Xpand 3D are now joining forces for a new ‘Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative’ which main goal is to set a new universal standard for active shutter 3D glasses.

The companies will work together on the development and licensing of multiple types of infrared (IR)  and Bluetooth RF (radio frequency) system protocols between 3D active glasses and 3D displays, and making of universal active 3D glasses which will work on a wide range of devices. The new standard also aims to give users a greater freedom of movement thanks to Bluetooth technology.
