Avatar director James Cameron predicts 3D TV explosion

AVATAR director James Cameron says a seismic shift is about to occur in television in Australia with the advent of 3D content

Cameron, at Warner Roadshow Studios on the Gold Coast to check progress on his new 3D movie Sanctum, says 3D will be the norm before we know it.

"Oh, it`s all happening at an accelerated rate,“ he said.

"For the last five or six years there`s been more content than there has been screens, people were making 3D films at a rate faster than the exhibitors were adopting the 3D technology in the theatres.

"That`s now going through a fairly seismic adjustment, and over the next few months we`re going to see a real change in that and the number of screens worldwide is probably going to double I would say, in the next year.“

But he believes it will take time for consumers to take real advantage of owning a 3D TV or home computers because of a lack of content.

"I think they`ve jumped the gun,“ Cameron said.

"They`re all now making 3D screens, and the quality is very good, but there`s not going to be enough content to drive them.“
