You will have to go The Official 3D Thread in the HDM Forum and look there. It was discussed.
Yes, I read that. It offers the 'what' but not the 'how,' and that's all the info I was able to find too. I couldn't find any implementation details (for example, does it exists as a standard numbered MPEG stream, and if so how are the 2 streams linked together, etc).
The way MVC works is on a predictive basis - that not every scene has two totally different views. Some are redundant. That is how the storage is kept at a typical 50% over a 2D encode. The 2 streams from the stereo cameras enter the encoder, but once in, they are no longer. Or else the storage would be 100% over a 2D encode (1 view)
3D BD uses a frame packed construction. Each frame looks like this:
There aren't two seperate streams. Just a single stream at 24 FPS. It is the job of the 3DTV to unpack the L & R frames and present them seperately in the frame sequential aka page flip 3D format.
