For those of you plugging your ears whilst humming along in hopes of this whole 3D
revolution fading away
, we've got a rude awakening headed your way. Just days after hearing that the HDMI specification could be updated
to better handle stereoscopic 3D content, along comes word that Panasonic has submitted a proposal to the Blu-ray Disc Association (BDA) for an official BD standard to store 3D imagery formed of "left / right-eye two-channel Full HD images." Panny reportedly made the move early in order avoid a format war, but really, it's just looking to cash in on royalties for the next
decade five years or less
. It's no secret that movie studios are dead set
on moving forward with 3D production -- might as well be ready on the other end, right?
