CES 2010 preview: Six trends to watch for at this year's show

2.) Home theater goes 3D

By now you’ve surely heard all the ruckus about James Cameron’s Avatar, a film so expensive that by design it’s supposed to usher in a new era of big-screen entertainment: 3D. Visual entertainment in three dimensions is by no means new, but the latest renaissance of the technology is coming on strong, with most major film houses (pricier tickets!), television manufacturers (bigger televisions!), home theater component sellers (renewed interest!) and content providers (3D channels! TV sitcoms! Football games! Star Wars!) all having a hand in the pot.

Jeffrey Katzenberg would be pleased, indeed.

Since CES places such prominence on the home theater segment of consumer electronics, expect to see a number of big-name TV manufacturers placing renewed emphasis on 3D tech for the home. What that means: bigger sets, sales of sophisticated 3D glasses, 3D boxes and a whole lot of (likely overpriced) HDMI cables. Now that the technology has been available for awhile, prices are pushing down — meaning you can soon buy an 82-inch 3D HDTV for less than $2,999.

High-end home theater has been out of vogue for the younger market. Expect 3D to make a play for those consumers’ attention.
