DLP® HDTV 3-D Image Format

3-D stereoscopic video content is sent to the TV digitally, through an HDMI or DVI port. Left and right stereo images are independently filtered, then sampled in an offset grid pattern. The resulting views are then combined, and appear as a left and right checkerboard pattern in a conventional orthogonal sampled image. This format preserves the horizontal and vertical resolution of the left and right views providing the viewer with the highest quality image possible with the available bandwidth.

  2. Dam it sounds great.Too bad companies arent making 3D compatible stuff for old DLP HD TVs too.I have a 72 toshiba that I paid 4500 two years ago. Ive wanted real 3D for so long. I cant see myself spending another 4500 on a 72. I hope they make a converter box so us old saps that invested on large tvs already can enjoy 3D with cable,dvds and video games 🙁
