We’ve received a few questions asking why Samsung 3D glasses don’t work with Sony TVs and vice versa. Apparently, the Consumer Electronics Association (CEA) is wondering the same thing.

Today, the CEA announced plans to launch a standards process for 3D glasses. Of course, that process isn’t always an easy one. It could take months or even years. Right now, the CEA is looking for interested participants to join the 3D Technologies Working Group, R4WG16.

“The expanding presence of 3DTV in the home makes the need for interoperable 3D glasses more urgent than ever,” said Brian Markwalter, the CEA’s VP of research and standards. “As the hub of technology industry innovation, CEA is the logical host for such a crucial effort. Industry participation will help meet consumer demand and expectations regarding 3D interoperability in the home.”
