This paper describes changes to the television architecture to support 3D video, with emphasis on the receiver and display processor. It is expected that multiple 3D services will be available in the near future. While the current 3-D Ready televisions are able to display uncompressed stereoscopic video signals, the capabilities are limited and need to be expanded. To enable more diverse sources of content, the television will also need to handle compressed stereoscopic formats from various delivery channels. Components of the television architecture that are impacted by new content sources are discussed, and standardization efforts that aim to achieve interoperability with the television receiver and display functionalities are also highlighted.
