3D Masters Tournament on a Motorola Set-Top

The 3D  Masters event is this week, and Motorola is joining up with Comcast to support some of the public viewing events on tap. Comcast will use Motorola DCX3400 set-tops for showings at the Augusta course, at the Comcast Center, and in Washington DC. The souped up DCX3400 units will include enhanced software for 3D viewing, but the hardware is no different from a set-top you’d find at home today.

Stay tuned here next week for more details on the future of 3D. (I’m hoping to have a surprise interview to post.) In the meantime, here’s a quote from Motorola SVP John Burke on Motorola’s work with Comcast to present the Masters in 3D.

There are many challenges in making 3D a superlative viewing experience in the home. Motorola is pleased to be working with Comcast during the Masters to help demonstrate the full potential of 3D TV, and will continue to use our 10+ years of 3D research to enable faster deployment of this exciting new service.
