Three challenges for 3D TV
by John P. Falcone
CES 2010 doesn`t start until later this week, but I can already tell you what the biggest trend will be: 3D TV. While 3D was teased at the 2009 CES, for 2010 we`ll be seeing manufacturers tout actual products that consumers will be able to buy by next Christmas (if not much earlier). But my question is: Does anybody actually want to buy it?
The industry thinks 3D is a slam dunk. It`s already a hit in theaters–almost half of the top-10 highest grossing movies of 2009 were offered in 3D–so the thought is it should translate perfectly to the home. And the current technology is widely agreed to be superior to the red/blue anaglyph method used throughout the middle-to-late 20th century.
