Dolby bringing 3-D to Blu-ray Dolby Laboratories, the company best known for its audio technologies, has proposed a new 3-D video technology for Blu-ray movies, following recent proposals from Panasonic and Philips.
The company will give a "first peek" of the technology at the upcoming CES show.

According to CDRInfo, "the technology, which uses a checkerboard pixel pattern similar to techniques employed in current 3-D-ready digital TVs from Mitsubishi and Samsung, can be used with active or passive 3-D glasses. It would work on any 3-D enabled TV with a standard Blu-ray player."

There was no word on when Dolby would release any consumer products using the 3-D technology.

So is this good or bad for the porn industry. Not only will we see stretch marks but anything n everything. Let's get this part out the way(perv homo newb kid flamer) ok . Personally blue rays one weakness is motion blur with dark knight being the example minus the IMAX scenes such were outstanding. This tech would be useless for videogames but movies ?
