Sky 3D - setting the standards

We interviewed BSkyB chief engineer, Chris Johns, about the importance of technical standards for 3D production and the hot issue of 2D to 3D conversion (he doesn't like it, but....). Sky made its technical specification for PlanoStereocopic (3D) programme content available online at http://introducingsky3d.sky.com/a/bskyb-3d-tech-spec and if you are thinking of shooting 3D it is well worth a read (it's fairly short).

Johns was one of the keynote speakers at TVB Europe magazine's 3D Masters 2010 conference, which was held at BAFTA, in London, and organised by TVB Europe magazine.
