History of 3D
3D TV is one of the greatest inventions of our time. This kind of viewing, three dimensions mean that you are able to enjoy the best viewing possible through your TV set. The viewers are therefore, able to watch movies and other videos in such a way that they appear real. There are a number of technologies that are applied to make this possible. In most cases, the manufacturers of these TV screens use stereoscopic displays or the multi-view display.
Today when you go to most of the cinemas, you will realize that there are indeed a lot of screens that show on 3D. For you to enjoy this you must however put on the 3D glasses. However, by the end of it all, you would have enjoyed one of the best viewing techniques the world has ever seen.
Though most of us are oblivious to this, 3D TV is not a new concept. The earliest that 3D came to be a reality was way back in the 1890s. British filmmaker William Greene can be credited with being among the first people to conceptualize the idea of 3D viewing. He had filed to patent 3D movie processing back in the day, which is fast becoming a reality today. Several tests were carried out from then on, including the one by Edwin Porter and William Waddell in 1915. The concept of 3D is not just a mechanical affair that happens on the TV screens, but in the real sense, it is something that is developed in the human brain too. The main proof of this can be seen in the way the different images are transmitted to different eyes perfectly, to enable the ultimate 3D viewing.
Further down the years, a lot of work was done on the stereoscopic views by Louis Jules Duboscq on a picture of Queen Victoria in the 1850s. The constant work and inventions that were in place during this time led to the screening of the first public 3D movie in 1922. From then on, it has been an upward trend with more ingenious ideas and designs being worked on through the years, to give us what we have today. Over the years, some of the developments that have marked milestones in the history of 3D include the screening of the first color 3D movie in 1935, and the stereoscopic 3D demonstration in 1928.
According to reliable sources, by the time the world was going through the Second World War, 3D had already become a common phenomenon, and there were still cameras already in popular usage. As a matter of fact, the 1950s were significant milestone years in the development of 3D, especially because TV was becoming a reality for so many people back then. A lot of movies were in production, and as such people were beginning to warm up to the idea of 3D screening. These trends have continued today to the point that we have 3D HD TV in homes throughout the world.
