New 3D Standards Announced By CEA
The Consumer Electronics Association (CEA)® have come up with five new standards, ranging in topic from accessibility to 3D video to wireless charging, which are now available to guide designers as they develop innovative products for consumers. CEA also released a technical report that addresses television picture brightness.
“The release of these standards follows the very successful CEA Technology & Standards Forum in Dallas,” said Brian Markwalter, senior vice president, research and standards, CEA. “CEA’s standards committees are always looking for new ways to help grow the consumer electronics industry through technological cooperation. The breadth of topics covered by these new standards reflects the innovation in the CE industry.”

What the new standards refer to are :-
Visually impaired people would now have their issues addressed as the dictat is for the remote to have a standardized Round Tactile Indicator which would help in identifying the remote buttons for such people. The standard is named as ANSI/CEA-2041.
Standards have been set for the manner in which closed captioning information would be sent in case of 3D format. This is numbered CEA-708.1, Digital Television (DTV) Closed Captioning: 3D Extensions.
Standard for the Eyewear indicates how the glasses used in active technology sets be designed. It is aimed at ensuring viewers don’t have to remove glasses while viewing 2D content. It would also help two different viewers to see different images which will be a boon specially so in case of gaming programs.
In case of wireless charging products the standard CEA-2042.1-A, Wireless Power Glossary of Terms, lays down the list of terminology that can be used for this technology.
Standardization of transmission of signal using a product that is CEA-805-D compliant has been set by the CEA-805-D-1, Data Services on the Component Video Interfaces.
Ambient lighting used while viewing TV sets have also been laid done by the CEA in its technical reports CEA-TR-1, Home Illumination Study strictures. The brightness factor of the television set for comfortable viewing experience has been laid down by this stricture. There is a direct relationship between brightness and the power consumed by the television set.
