3D TV is an emerging technology that allows consumers to enjoy three-dimensional movies, television programs and video games in their homes. Several companies have developed viable 3D technology for the home theater environment, but the reality of seeing 3D TV in the average household is probably years away. That’s primarily because the technology requires the purchase of new television equipment, including a 3D-ready TV and a 3D-capable Blu-ray player.
A number of TV manufacturers, including Panasonic, Sony and Samsung, are manufacturing 3D TVs, and their technology is not standardized. At this point, it’s anyone’s guess whose 3D TV technology will have the greatest long-term success, but the Blu-ray 3D standards are platform agnostic, meaning 3D Blu-ray discs should play on any manufacturer’s 3D-enabled set.
Although there are companies working on 3D television technology that does not require glasses, the systems that are coming out now use glasses. The arrival of the 3d television technology is causing quite a stir within the industry, with competitors watching carefully of the progress that Panasonic is making in the 3D TV market. Others are looking to follow swiftly. In fact Panasonic is attempting to encourage other companies to follow the 3D TV standard.
I hope this tv will come to Uganda soon. So far 2010 is the year when 3d TV really starts hitting our homes to enable us to enjoy a much enhanced viewing experienced that was unthinkable a few years ago. So say good bye to the cinema trips and enjoy the 3D TV experience right from the comfort of your own armchair.
