If you have recently purchased a brand new TV set (a Christmas present for the family, perhaps), you’ll be pretty pissed off to hear this one. Commercially available 3D TV Sets will be available for sale to end consumers this year. It is expected that new 3D TV Sets will be only about $300 more expensive than same size flat screen TV Sets without 3D capability. You’ve heard it right – a 3D TV experience right in your living room. This is gonna change the way you watch porn forever.
DreamWorks Animation CEO Jeffrey Katzenberg said that his studio will release each of their new movies in 3D versions, because 2010 will be the year of 3D TVs. Sony, Discovery and Imax are joining forces to create the first fully 3D TV channel that could go live as early as towards the end of this year. HDNet owner Mark Cuban also said that his channel will start broadcasting most of its prime time and weekend shows in 3D soon. Disney owned sports network ESPN is planning to start with 3D broadcast on June 11, 2009 with the World Cup soccer.
The question now remains – which company has produced 3D TV Sets? People behind International CES – the world’s largest consumer technology tradeshow said they expect Sony, Panasonic, Samsung, LG, Mitsubishi and Vizio to unveil their 3D TV models at this week’s show (takes place between January 7 and 10, 2010 in Las Vegas). Consumer trends analysts anticipate 3D TV Sets to become an instant hit. As many as 45% of household in North America may feature a 3D TV Set by 2014 – the analysts anticipate.
