Singapore launching nationwide 3DTV trial

Singapore is kicking off a nationwide trial of 3D TV across a multitude of platforms this week, including cable and IPTV with a number of major players, including MediaCorp, Starhub and SingTel, Panasonic, Ross Video, and Evertz taking part.

If the tests go well, they may be expanded to include consumers.

The government also plans to launch and fund an initiative that will help develop 3D content to bring a wider choice of content to market.

"The trial will be a stepping stone to help these companies bring a commercially-viable and superior media experience to Singaporeans," said Lui Tuck Yew, acting minister for information, communications and the arts. "In support of this, the Media Development Authority of Singapore will also facilitate the trial and aid development of content, talent and media services."
