The SCTE Standards Program has begun to investigate the standardization required for the carriage of next generation 3D content on cable networks.

The SCTE Engineering Committee, which oversees the Society’s development of technical standards covering all aspects of cable networks, has approved a project to examine the delivery of 3D content over cable networks. The new project, "3D over Cable," will focus on identifying necessary or desirable changes to existing SCTE standards, including transport protocols, to facilitate the provision of 3D content by cable operators.

The 3D project has been assigned to SCTE’s Digital Video Subcommittee (DVS), which will make recommendations on standards and protocols based on the needs of the cable industry. As part of this effort, DVS will consider not only cable industry activities but also standards work being conducted in other organizations such as the Society of Motion Picture and Television Engineers and the Consumer Electronics Association.
