SISVEL Founder Roberto Dini to Present New Method of 3D Broadcasting at European TV Forum Posted: 06/06/2011
Roberto Dini, founder of SISVEL, will deliver a presentation at the European TV Forum on the new format for 3D broadcasting.

The new 3D Tile Format 2 unveiled by Sisvel Technology offers significant advantages over current methods, formatting stereoscopic images by integrating two 720p frames within a single 1080p frame. This provides better-quality images for 3D content and maintains backward compatibility, allowing viewers not equipped for 3D to view a 3D transmission as 2D images on their full HD TV sets. The reconstructed right and left images maintain their original 720p spatial and temporal resolution, giving viewers of both versions the full benefit of the original picture, and the transmission of both 2D and 3D can be achieved without the need for increased bandwidth.

At the European Forum on Digital TV that will be held June 9-10, 2011 in Lucca, Italy, Roberto Dini will also introduce the partners of the so-called 3D Village. This is an initiative that creates a common space for broadcasters, content providers, researchers, and manufacturers experimenting with 3D Tile Format 2 technology.
