Abstract
Since the big hit of 3D movie 'Avatar', broadcasting industry is preparing launch of 3DTV service. There are many ways to transmit stereoscopic video data and provide 3DTV service. In order to provide 3DTV service of full HDTV quality and at the same time 2DTV service to legacy viewers in terrestrial broadcasting, we need to send two images of full resolution encoded separately. We present new hybrid encoding schemes: 'MPEG-2+AVC', 'MPEG-2+AVC Interview' and 'MPEG-2+HEVC', and then compare objective and subjective performance of each scheme. 'MPEG- 2+HEVC' shows the best result and it shows the possibility of providing backward compatible 3DTV service while keeping HDTV quality to legacy HDTV users.
