3D-TV Production Standards - First Report of the ITU-R Rapporteurs

This article is based on the first report written by the ITU-R co-Rapporteurs on 3D-TV production formats: Andy Quested (BBC) and Barry Zegel (CBS). Published in early May 2011 as ITU-R Document 6C/468-E, the report assembles information on the image systems and techniques currently being utilized for 3D-TV programme production, along with their pros and cons.

The report also discusses their effect on a number of other elements that are likely to be linked to the choice of programme production solutions that would play a role in the success of any eventual deployment of permanent international 3D-TV broadcasting services.
