SARFT, MIIT Develop 3D TV Standards

The State Administration of Radio, Film and Television (SARFT) of China has begun formulating industry standards for 3D TV broadcasting, Sina reports June 21 citing an unnamed official from SARFT's Academy of Broadcasting Planning. Approximately seven to eight domestic TV stations have plans to launch stereoscopic channels or programs, according to the report.
