SDI Media & Sony to Create 3D Subtitling Placement Solution

SDI Media announced that Sony Creative Software has adopted and integrated SDI's XML schema into their Z-Depth 3D subtitle editing application. Z-Depth creates the information needed for proper placement of subtitles or menus in the 3D space of a 3D title presentation.

The purpose of this document is to propose a standardized XML based file format for storing Z-axis data for 3D subtitles applicable to Theatrical (Digital Cinema, Digital Intermediates), Blu-Ray and Broadcast venues. Recording only the changes in Z values over the course of the picture should be sufficient as it eliminates the redundancy of recording individual Z values for each frame of the picture.
