3-D Projector Line-Up

You no longer have to be limited to 55 or 65" 3-D televisions, as you can watch 3-D movies on screens up to a 300" diagonal, depending on the image size that can be projected by the brand of projector that you select. Not all projectors are capable of projecting 3-D.  In fact, many cannot.  Even some projectors that are cited by its manufacturer as 3-D ready or 3-D capable do not process 3-D well.  Some models cannot project 3-D images from a Blu-ray player, but only from a PC that has 120 Hz output.

Of course, the couch or lazy Boy is the seating.   This is as basic as it gets.

Is 3-D Television in Your Future?

All though 3-D television is an emerging technology, it will be main stream sooner than we expect, as 3-D cameras are improved and all television sets will be capable of reproducing 3-D accurately. Obviously, 3-D televisions are expensive now, but like allnew technology, the prices will become reasonable as more viewers step up to enjoy the wonders of the world around us. I look forward to the advancements, which will put forward great images without the glasses. The first 3-D movie was produced by Arch Oboler, of the famed radio series, "Lights Out." It was called Bwana Devil and stared Robert Stack. My first experience with 3-D was in 1953 with the horror movie, House of Wax, which was the first movie with stereophonic sound,staring Vincent Price, who became the King of 3-D by staring in three more 3-D films.
