50% Expect To Work In 3D Next Year
According to a poll carried out among visitors at the BVE exhibition by test and measurement specialist, Hamlet – 50% of people expect to work in a stereoscopic 3D production in the coming year. A further 14% had already worked in 3D and almost two-thirds of visitors said that finding out about 3D equipment and production techniques was the main reason or an important part of their visit.
Conference sessions and product demonstrations at the event, held at London’s Earls Court, reflected the rapidly growing interest in 3D, both for cinema and now for broadcast. The convention immediately followed the first broadcasts from Sky’s new 3D channel.
While there is well-founded excitement about the prospects for 3D movies, those surveyed were less certain about the prospects of 3D to the home. 30% felt that technology fans would be interested but it would not find a mass market, and just a quarter thought that there definitely would be an audience.
