The 3D TV technical standards already employed on ASTRA satellites by broadcasters such as BSkyB, Canal+, Sky Deutschland, and others, have been approved by the Digital Video Broadcasting Project. The DVB-3DTV specification enables service providers to deliver two images to be viewed near-simultaneously by the left and right eyes on 3D-compatible TVs via HDMI from existing HDTV set-top boxes. It also provides for onscreen graphics and subtitling to be positioned for correct viewing in stereoscopic 3D pictures.
ASTRA is an active member of the Digital Video Broadcasting Project (DVB), a consortium of 250 broadcasting industry companies and bodies from over 35 countries to design global open technical standards for the delivery of digital TV services.
