Weak Signal's description 
The 3D4YOU project aims to pave the way for the introduction a 3D TV system. The project will develop the key elements of a practical 3D television system, particularly, the definition of a 3D delivery format and guidelines for a 3D content creation process. The project will develop 3D capture techniques, convert captured content for broadcasting and develop 3D coding for delivery via broadcast, i.e. suitable to transmit and make public. 3D broadcasting is seen as the next major step in home entertainment. The cinema and computer games industries have already shown that there is considerable public demand for 3D content, but special glasses are needed which limits their appeal. 3D4YOU will address the consumer market which coexists with digital cinema and computer games.
