The movie industry has embraced stereoscopic 3D, making it an increasingly common part of the theater experience. As Sony said during its CES press event earlier this year, the next step is to move 3D out of the theater and make it more "personal" for consumers by bringing it to living rooms, camcorders, and personal computing products.
The quest to make 3D ubiquitous took another step forward today. NVIDIA, Mozilla, and Google have teamed up to make stereoscopic 3D videos on YouTube work with computers that have NVIDIA 3D Vision hardware. The feature is supported through a new HTML5-based 3D playback mode that works in Firefox 4.
|"We're excited to introduce HTML5 and WebM support to the thousands of 3D videos available on YouTube," said Jonathan Huang, 3D Product Manager at YouTube. "By embracing these open standards, NVIDIA 3D Vision users now have a great way of experiencing YouTube's library of 3D content."|
