ANSI Approves 3D Standards

The American National Standards Institute has approved three SCTE standards related to 3D video.

ANSI/SCTE 187-1 2012, “Stereoscopic 3D Formatting and Coding for Cable,” defines the video-related formatting and encoding parameters for HD frame-compatible stereoscopic 3D content for distribution on cable systems. Encoding parameters and constraints defined by the specification can be applied to different content types, including broadcast programming, SDV, VOD, and advertising to be inserted into broadcast or VOD content.

ANSI/SCTE 187-2 2012, “Stereoscopic 3D PSI Signaling,” defines the transport and signaling for HD frame-compatible stereoscopic 3D content for distribution on cable systems. Transport parameters and constraints defined by the spec can be applied to different content types, including broadcast programming, SDV, VOD , and advertising to be inserted into broadcast or VOD content.

ANSI/SCTE 187-3 2012, “Informative Guidance for Stereoscopic Video,” provides informative guidance for the construction or production of stereoscopic 3D programming material intended for transmission or distribution using the frame-compatible stereoscopic 3D format defined in part 1 [SCTE 187-1] and part 2 SCTE 187-2] of the standard.

All three standards are available at http://www.scte.org/standards/Standards_Available.aspx.
