Samsung 3D Blu-rays don’t work?
As Samsung and Panasonic prepare major media announcements in New York on Tuesday and Wednesday, respectively, about their 3D products hitting stores this month, reports have begun to surface that Samsung’s 3D Blu-ray players already in Best Buy stores do not work.
Not that the average consumer would notice yet since there are no 3D Blu-ray movies on the market yet, but industry insiders have told 3DHollywood.net that the players were recently tested with 3D Blu-ray movies compliant with industry standards that are being prepared for market and that they do not work at all. That could mean Samsung may have to recall or modify their players.
Sources say that Samsung’s players have come to market before the Blu-ray Disc Association has issued its final certification specs for the industry standard the organization announced in December.
Any products released now will simply be guessing at the final approved standard, and apparently Samsung guessed wrong.
