Paper Abstract

On December 19, 1980 a Los Angeles subscription TV system was the first to broadcast true stereoscopic (3D) programming. Using a unique electronic 3D Video* Process developed by the 3D Video Corporation, films originally shot in 3D are transferred to tape then chan-neled through a special electronic processor creating a 3D Master Tape. The resultant 3D tape can be broadcast conventionally or duplicated on video cassettes or video discs. The viewers at home wear anaglyph glasses to see true 3D on their color television sets. Sev-eral actual broadcasts have indicated considerable public interest and approval.
