3DTV is Not Dead, It's Just Facing Reality Beyond the Hype

Contrary to what many at the press have been preaching since 3DTV was introduced in 2010, 3D is still alive and active in the industry, and many consumers still want to experience 3D at home.

What it should be dead is the approach of inflated advertising and improper reporting of 3DTV as a whole new television set or system that replaces what you have, although it appears that the market and the industry have finally adapted to the idea of considering 3D as what it should have been considered since day one: just a “feature”, one more feature of a good HDTV, to seldom enjoy a 3D movie or sport, then, when the 3D program is over, continue with everyday’s HD viewing. For this reason it is a must to have 3D transmissions backward compatible with HDTV transmissions.

As expected, CES 2013 showed many demonstrations of Ultra HDTV LED and OLED (even in Ultra HDTV resolution, such as Sony’s and Panasonic’s 56” OLED Ultra HDTV prototypes), and there were also 3D demos of the same Ultra HDTV and OLED panels, not to mention the huge 3D wall at the entrance of LG’s booth. Additionally, Stream TV Networks, Hisense, Toshiba and others demo their 1080p and Ultra HDTV auto-stereoscopic (no-glasses) 3D panels as well.  Full Article.
