HDMI 1.3 Will Support 3D
Posted on January 4, 2010 by Shak
 

A while ago, the HDMI Licensing group released the final specifications for the new 3D craze. The main detail that bothered everyone was that it required HDMI 1.4, which was incompatible with just about every Blu-Ray Player available, including the PS3. Well it turns out you don't need HDMI 1.4 to play movies in 3D, but there's a compromise.

The HDMI 1.4 specification will allow the viewer to watch 3D movies in full 1080p. However, if you have a device with the HDMI 1.3 specification, such as the PS3, you will only be able to watch 3D movies in 1080i.

You will still have to buy a new 3D HDTV as these have dual-scanning abilities, which can display near-simultaneous frames, one for each eye, to create the 3D illusion. Current HDTVs are only single-scan, and therefore will not work in the same way.

Not sure about the glasses. The TV needs to be either 120Hz or higher (too lazy to look it up right now). 1080i 3D will be no big deal. Here is a real no-glasses 3D tv: http://www.wired.com/gadgetlab/2008/10/philips-3d-hdtv/ The bigger question is - what method are Sony pushing for PS3 and what sort of TV is required? I know the red-blue glasses trick was used for the G-Force game. That is not what Sony is pushing.
