What is a 3D TV?
These days, whenever you make a trip to your local electronics store you will probably see 3D TVs on display. Best Buy does a great job actually setting up their 3D Glasses area to showcase the 3D TV functionality for those who are eager to learn more about how the technology works. In addition to that though, today there are a lot of movie halls and movie theaters such as IMAX that show their movies on 3D screens. As a matter of fact, this is now the trend all across the world, so much of a trend that consumers are actually starting to invest into 3D technology. The hype and buzz around this technology is certainly there, but have you thought for a moment away from the 3D craze and frenzy and asked yourself, what exactly is a 3D TV and how does it actually work? Come to think of it, very few people ever think of that question. Most of the consumers just go out shopping and buy the latest 3D TV brand that we can get our hands on. Well that’s why we’re here, to educate you
3D TV is more or less a new technology, especially when you consider the fact that so many homes are still using analog television sets and many homes already have LCD or LED screens. A 3D TV is a television that has been designed in such a way that the viewers are able to enjoy the image and video viewing in three dimensions. What this means is you are able to view whatever you are viewing in such a way that it appears real with vivid life-like images project to both of your eyes. There are a lot of companies that have put a lot of effort in making sure that this process works perfectly, both for home use and also in the cinemas where the technology has stirred up commercial gains since its inception. There was a time when people would rather sit at home and rent a DVD. However, since 3D came into place, many people are flocking the movies again, lining up to catch their favorite actors on the big screen.
As much as 3D home theater systems are becoming a popular item in many people’s homes, there are still quite a number of people that are yet to experience this reality. The main reason for this is that to enjoy it; you have to think in terms of buying a new TV set, and this would have to include a compatible Blu-ray player, a 3D-ready TV and of course the added price you pay for buying the latest new technology.
3D TV viewing is going to continue to grow over the next several years I predict, and to be able to enjoy 3D you must at least have 3D glasses that are specially designed to enable this form of entertainment. There are so many companies that are working day and night to make sure 3D technology continues to advance, and are even working on getting rid of the mandatory glasses that people now have to wear. However, before that can be achieved, you must get the 3D glasses for you to enjoy your favorite 3D movies or sports. While glasses-free technology sounds appealing, it’s questionable whether or not that will actually all come to life in the near future. The good thing about these challenges, however, is that technology is at an advancing stage and only time will tell where 3D TV viewing will be 5-10 years from now. Rest assured though, the battle of adaptation among consumers may be slow for now, we’ve seen the same pattern happen when LCD TVs first came out. We are viewing history repeat itself, all in my opinion of course.
