3D TV To Explode On The Home Entertainment Front in 2-4 Years: James Cameron
3D TV is set to boom by the next two to four years time. Or so believes James Cameron, who has recently been lending a lot of weight to the cause of 3D TV and its proliferation as the perfect home entertainment device.
The Oscar winning director believes its the lack of quality in the current 3D productions and the cumbersome viewing glasses has led to below par advancement of 3D TV on the home entertainment front.
To quote Cameron, “The biggest hurdle right now is the experience in the home. While it’s quite good, it requires committing to wearing glasses. It’s a family phenomenon so it has to be seen from different angles. High-quality, full HD-resolution, glasses-free displays are two to four years away. In the next few years, I think the market will explode.”
It was in 2009 that the ‘Avatar’ was released in its 3D version and made box office records of the sort that is quite unheard of. It just goes to show how profitable 3D can be if only it is used in the right manner.
Mere conversion of 2D to 3D is not that would go well, as per Cameron. He said “One of the things that I think has hurt the business is quick and shabby versions in 3D. It’s not worth it if you can’t do it right.”
Cameron the maker of Titanic has also converted the movie into 3D format and the Blu-ray version in 3D is expected to be released on 14th September. A survey by Screen Digest estimates 18 million homes only to be having 3D TV by that time.
If one compares the acceptance of 3D to HDTV in the home theater segment, it would be seen that 3D has progressed faster than what HDTV did in its time of initiation.
