Standards for XR Terminology Defined
TVTechnology reports that the Consumer Technology Association (CTA) has released their “first-ever standard addressing augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR) technologies.”
Developed by the CTA’s Portable Handheld and In-Vehicle Electronics Committee, this new standard provides official definitions for the following terms:
360 Spatial Audio
VR Video and VR Images
Although these terms are well-known to those in VR/AR/MR circles, establishing clear “official” definitions will help to clarify product features for consumers and manufacturers, and hopefully increase awareness and mainstream adoption.
The new standard can be obtained for free at CTA’s website, after registering for a free account.
