One of the big issues that have plagued 3D TV owners and kept many from adopting the new tech aside from price of the sets and the fact that the active glasses are expensive has been the lack of content. Some of the big cable companies have added 3D sports channels, but many of the 3D stations are not 3D all the time.
Vizio is certainly investing itself in the 3D market, and they look to be making a bigger push as of today. In a late announcement, the company has officially unveiled their latest, and largest, 3D-capable TV. The XVT3D650SV is said to be more aggressive in the pricing area due to the fact that, instead of using active shutter technology, it focuses on the passive 3D glasses.
While 3D sweeps through the movie industry, and begins to make large in-roads into the video game industry, it is sports that has already given its own green light for the technology. But, while watching a soccer match, or football or basketball in 3D may sound like fun, there may be some sports out there that don't necessarily need to be given the 3D upgrade. For instance, darts may not have been a sport that you'd think would get the 3D treatment, but you'd be wrong.
While the World Cup 2022 bidding may be officially over as of the time of this writing (FIFA has announced that the 2022 tournament will be held in Qatar), that doesn't make Japan's bid for the tournament any less noteworthy. The country, with some major help from Sony, wasn't just aiming to make Japan the host country for the tournament in 2022, but to actually have countries all over the world host it together, thanks to life-sized holographics, and giant screens that would be placed in stadiums all over the globe.
When it comes to AMOLED and Super AMOLED, the display technology is synonymous with Samsung. But Samsung doesn't want to just focus on the here-and-now. They've already shown off what a 4.5-inch flexible AMOLED would look like, so why wouldn't the company show off a concept design of what it would look like to see that technology on a bigger screen? That's exactly what they did at this year's FPD International.
For 3DTV, or even 3D as a whole, there's a heated debate going on behind the scenes. It's one that you may have with people you know, even friends, as you suggest that 3D is the future, or perhaps that it's just a giant waste of time. And while companies all over the globe try to capitalize on the reemerging technology, some analysts out there haven't been all that positive about the technology's adoption. But, for one European analyst, it's not all Doom and Gloom. In fact, he believes 3D adoption is better than HD, at the same point in the technology's life cycle.
Panasonic has a bunch of different 3D TVs and other massive screened HDTVs in its line .The company has now combined a gigantic screen with 3D capability with the unveiling of its new 103-inch TH-P103MT2. The gigantic display supports full HD resolution with 3D capability and has no integrated TV tuner.
It's hard to not be a fan of Vizio TVs with their good performance and great pricing. The TV company has put a hurtin' on other major TV makers over the last few years grabbing up a large share of the market thanks to very competitive pricing. Vizio has announced that one of its most popular lines of TVs is now getting 3D models.
Gefen has gobs of hardware and accessories for getting your home theater all set up and running just how you want it. The company has unveiled its latest splitter for home theater fans needing to send a signal out to four different displays making this a great device for someone looking to build up a video wall. The splitter is the GTB-HDFST-144-BLK otherwise known as the 1:4 Splitter for HDMI with FST and 3D.
There are a few companies out there pushing for 3D technology to find nearly every facet of our technologically-focused lives. From our computers, to our video game consoles, and especially our TVs, the 3D revolution is an on-going push into the future from some of the biggest names in the business. NVIDIA is one of those companies, pushing for the 3D gaming experience as hard as they can, but until now mainly focusing on the computer end of things. Today, after unveiling the 3DTV Play Software all the way back in March, NVIDIA is announcing it's available now.
Getting 3D entertainment in your home isn't a hard feat anymore. As many TV manufacturers are making a hard push for the next level of entertainment, including heavy-hitters like Sony. However, the technology isn't loved by everyone, and for most it has everything to do with the glasses that are required to be worn while enjoying the 3D entertainment. While glasses-free 3D technology exists, and some companies are aiming to get test TV sets out in the market by the end of 2010, Samsung believes glasses-free 3D TVs won't be common in the home for up to 10 years.
