Why 3DTV will be in your home soon -CES 2010 Preview

Submitted by on January 7, 2010 – 5:39 pmNo Comment

DSC_2026If the first day of CES 2010 press previews are any indication, you’ll be wearing glasses in your living room by the end of the year. I had come here hoping to learn more about what excites me for the future of technology– 3D TV and Internet connected TVs –and every manufacturer had something new to offer.

It seems that this is the year that 3DTV will come into our homes. Each manufacturer has their choice of 3D glasses. Some have electronic shutters, others use “RealD” glasses like you use in a 3D movie at the theater. I’ll be checking out each of the offerings at the exhibits over the next couple of days.

But there is no question that 3D is truly here, evidenced by:

– TVs from LG, Samsung, Sharp, Panasonic, Toshiba, and even Vizio will offer 3D.
– Cable/Satellite TV stations will start to broadcast in 3D.
-ESPN is planning to show 85 events in 3D in 2010
-Discovery (may be in 2011)
-DirecTV will start broadcasting those channels in June 2010 – you’ll be able to use your same satellite box you currently have with a firmware (software) update.
(you will also be able to record the 3D programs if you have a box with a DVR)
– There will also be 3D Blu-ray Disc players coming to stores this year
– There is a 3D standard that has been created for Blu-ray. No matter which 3D technology is featured on your Blu-ray Disc Player , you can play the same 3D discs.
– There is a standard for the cables that carry the signal from the Blu-ray Disc players. This assures that you can connect your players to your TV.

Yes, it will be a rocky start, but it is clear that you can have that 3D experience in your living room by the time Avatar is released on Blu-ray!
