Sigma Designs adds 2D+Delta decoding to 3DTV sets
Sigma is the first chip company to publicly support TDVision System's Full HD stereoscopic video decoding technology. Sigma's next generation advanced media processors will support the award winning 2D+Delta stereoscopic decoding system by TDVision.
TDVision's 2D+Delta system consists of different profiles to best fit the transmission pipeline available. These profiles include the basic Multiview Video Coding (MVC) standard, advanced profiles for high-bandwidth savings, and hybrid implementations for full MPEG-2 legacy support. The 2D+Delta format is a key part of the MVC codec (ISO/IEC 14496-10:2008, Amendment 1), an extension to the ITU-T H.264 Advanced Video Coding (AVC) adopted by the Blu-ray Disc Association as the "Blu-ray 3DTM" specification.
