The TV industry has already gone through two major waves of change. The first being the move from black & white to color, the second from standard to high-definition. Some analysts are now speculating that the 3rd wave will be from high definition to 3D. 

As the consumer electronics industry makes significant investments in developing next-generation technologies for a broad range of 3D applications, HDMI is the driving force behind enabling the 3D revolution. The latest HDMI 1.4 standard provides the critical infrastructure for implementing 3D video in the home by defining data rates and protocols that will allow 3D displays and source devices to communicate through an HDMI link. With support for resolutions up to 1080p in high-definition, HDMI 1.4 is key to bringing true 3D gaming and home theater to the mass market. However, going from HD to 3D comes with special challenges on many fronts including: recording, storing, transmitting, displaying and viewing content. 

In this webinar:

  • Learn how HDMI helps address the challenges of implementing 3D capabilities in SoC designs
  • Understand the bandwidth requirements of 3D content
  • Discover how 3D content for the left and right eye can be packed in eight different ways in the HDMI frame and how a 3D image would look like on a 2D display
  • Learn about the latest trends related to HDMI 1.4 from a SoC perspective
  • Get an overview of Synopsys’ DesignWare® HDMI 1.4 TX and RX IP solution and the implementation choices available for SoC designers
