Report of the Safety/Guidelines Section Activities

Mr. Shigeru Chiba
  • "Safety guidelines" for the diffusion of human-friendly 3D is being established. Try to prepare practical guidelines referring to the JEITA Safety Guidelines to secure safety for users and providers.
  • Safety for users - Reduction of eye strain, discomfort and health hazard by looking at 3D contents.
  • Safety for providers - Offering of 3D images without a sense of discomfort, reduction of risks of lawsuits under the PL law.
  • The effects of 3D images on living bodies is being researched, and (1) there is not much we can claim "this ensure safety." (2) We cannot have any kind of certificate as a safe contents provider. However, we do have significant guidelines recommended for the reduction of risks. Therefore, it is important for us to prepare guidelines proposed by the 3D Consortium.
