What is SBS 3D?

SBS 3D, short for side-by-side 3D, is one of the most popular 3D formats that can be played on 3D TV. SBS 3D consists of two halves of images on the left and right for left eye and right eye respectively, with the entire frames for the left eye and right eye scaled down horizontally to fit the both sides of frames. For example, for a video with the resolution of 1280 x 720, the horizontally scaled frame for the left eye will have a resolution of 640 x 720, and the frame for the right eye also has the same 640 x 720 resolution.

There is another 3D format named top/bottom 3D is similar with SBS 3D. The difference lies in that top/bottom 3D consists of two halves on the top and bottom and the entire frame for each eye is scaled down vertically to fit the top-half and bottom-half of the frames.

SBS 3D is popular for the following two reasons: SBS 3D uses the same bandwidth as regular HD content, therefore it can be transmitted in the way that HD signals are transmitted; users can back up the large source sequential 3D to smaller SBS 3D to watch on 3D devices.

Of course the video quality of SBS 3D won’t be as good as sequential 3D content, but the loss of quality will not be so serious and you can still enjoy the exciting 3D effect.
