Dawn of new 3-D TV Era

Filed under: Gadgets — Tags: , , , , , , , , , — tiliman @ 3:21 am

It seems that suddenly there is increased interest from big electronic appliances manufacturers in 3D TV as well as TV channels.

  • Samsung is releasing a new pencil thin 3D TV that can convert 2D videos into 3D. More interestingly they are integrating their new AppStore withthe system as well.I wonder where is the SDK for building apps for TV? We know Bada for Phone is being launched in April.
  • Toshiba with a set top box has also promised to upconvert 2D videos to 3D as well as upconverting of not-so-high-def videos to highdef.

  • Sony’s Bravia XBR-60LX900 due this summer will support 3D as well.
  • Discovery partnering with Sony and Imax promises for 24hour 3D TV channel as well as  ESPN promises for 3D TV channel this summer.

The 3D tech is finally arriving in our homes but it is yet to be seen how well the technology delivers. I hope Hollywood is planning on more 3D movies as well to support the initiative of manufacturers.
