Russian developers have conducted a test 3D-broadcasting over the air TV channel

MNITI, Elecard and Triaxes Vision presented the latest 3DTV solution, allowing for the simultaneous broadcasting in 3D and 2D formats.

RUSSIA — MOSCOW, May 10-13, 2011 — At the 23 th international exhibition "CSTB-2011" at the joint stand of FSUE RTRS FSUE-RTR-JSC "MNITI", Moscow Research Institute — head scientific organization of Industry and Trade of the Russian Federation in digital television, the company Elecard, — the world’s leading developer of high-tech digital video compression, together with Triaxes Vision, — advanced technology developer stereoscopic visualization of multimedia data during the exhibition "CSTB 2011" for the first time in the world have carried out an experimental 3D digital broadcasting. 3D demo program transmitted from the transmitter 34 TCE of the company "OCTODE" with its tower at the October field, taken with a digital set-top box 3D DVB-T and displayed on the glasses-free 3D TVs with a screen size of 52 inches Dimenco.


Development of interoperable system 2D/3D DVB-T broadcasting opens the possibility of organizing a three-dimensional television networks on-air digital broadcasting DVB-T without additional frequencies for the transmission of 3D content, as represented by the concept of implementing full backward compatibility with conventional 2D-digital format.

This concept was able to realize a unique technology for universal stereoscopic television (3D TV), using which the entire chain of "creation, transmission, reception and viewing 3D-image" is part of a single standard that is compatible with both conventional digital format and with 3D . Such a solution is a kind of unique because for the first time makes it easy to broadcast 3D-channels on three different types of TVs: conventional 2D, 3D with glasses, 3D without glasses, as well as to broadcast a wireless Wi-Fi network to other devices and media.


"In this exhibition, we have demonstrated a real opportunity today to make TV a truly volumetric"- Said the director of Triaxes Vision Alexey Polyakov.

Constantine Bystrushkin, deputy gene. MNITI Director for Science:
"I am very pleased that, together with colleagues from Tomsk, we have been able to carry out a real experiment on transfer in the Moscow air 2D/3D digital broadcast programs (many thanks LLC "OCTODE" for assistance). The success of this experiment clearly confirmed the correctness of our theoretical development and is an important step in creating innovative Russian development of 3D-compatible TV.

This versatile 3DTV solution is presented in the framework of the Federal Target Program "Development of broadcasting in the Russian Federation for 2009-2015". The concept fits perfectly into this project and is aimed at improving the quality and modernization of digital television provided by the user. This solution will streamline and simplify the process of television broadcasting by the versatility, economy of means and resources in the development and implementation of digital and 3D television and orientation of future advanced solutions in the field of 3D broadcasting.
