We have just received word that Sensio Technologies Inc. has been officially accepted as “an optional DVD standard”. According to Sensio, this is for standard DVD and is not reflective of Blu-Ray DVDs required for 3D HDTV.
“…our technology is now officially recognized by the DVD Forum. This standardization will allow manufacturers who want to integrate our technology in their DVD players to do it following specific guidelines set out by the DVD Forum. It will facilitate the integration process for manufacturers.” – Magali Valence, Public Relations Manager for Sensio Technologies Inc.
MTBS further confirmed that there is nothing preventing the DVD Forum to add other 3D codecs to the DVD specifications. However, Sensio is very proud of the fact that while additional solutions were brought forward at the same time, theirs was the first to be officially recognized as an optional standard.
There are additional codecs in the standards war fight. Here is an interview with Ethan Schur, Director of Marketing for TDVision Corp that took place at CES:
