Global 3DTV to increase 166% by 2017

Posted on 25 Sep 2013 at 07:07AM

Consumer uptake of 3D hardware continues apace, with the market on track to achieve 157.7 million 3DTV sales in 2017, up from a forecast of 59.3 million for 2013, according to a new report from Futuresource Consulting.

“In 2017, 3DTVs will account for 58 per cent of all TVs sold across the globe, rising from 18 per cent last year,” says Sam Leech, Research Analyst, Futuresource Consulting. “Growth in the delivery of 3D content to the home is less apparent, with a varying array of broadcaster strategies – some are ending current commitments whereas others continue to increase output. What is clear is that 3D content will become increasingly restricted to premium and o…

Italian local TV channels Telecapri and TCN-TeleCapriNews have started technical tests of anaglyph 3D, a three-dimensional technology visible on all TV sets.

The tests will serve to optimise the broadcasting and transmission technology and sites and acquaint viewers with the procedures. The 3D programmes are transmitted on Telecapri (DTT channel 76) at 08:50 and on TCN-TeleCapriNews (DTT channel 74) at 14.30, 16.30 and 21.30 hours.

To watch the 3D programmes, viewers must use new anaglyph glasses (a new version of the old two-colour glasses, designed in Italy, but produced elsewhere), at a cost of €0.90. The glasses are distributed in local stores.

Seminole grants IZON $400000 to produce 3-D televisions in Lake Mary

Posted on 10 Sep 2013 at 10:10AM

Seminole County commissioners on Tuesday gave $400,000 in incentives to a Longwood company that plans to make glasses-free 3-D televisions, a technology that industry experts say is not yet ready for the mass market.

The unanimous approval came less than a week after Lake Mary commissioners rejected giving $400,000 to the same company, IZON LLC, saying they were not confident IZON could produce the TVs.

The terms of the incentives package require IZON to hire 400 people to produce the TVs in a Seminole County factory. The jobs would be mostly assembly-line workers paid an average of $37,000 annually, or 95 percent of Seminole's average pay.

Can Xiaomi Sell 3D TVs When No One Else Can?

Posted on 06 Sep 2013 at 05:05AM

For a while there a couple of years ago, 3D TV was the next big thing with electronics manufacturers. Customers were far less enthusiastic and 3D television sets from makers like Samsung Electronics, LG Electronics and Sony Corp. (NYSE: SNE) never lived up to the hype.

Now, the Chinese smartphone maker that can do no wrong, Xiaomi Technology, has introduced a 3D TV set with a 47-inch screen made by either Samsung or LG for $499. The devices are said to be Internet-ready using the Android operating system from Google Inc. (NASDAQ: GOOG).

Xiaomi, like all the other makers that came before, faces an almost insurmountable problem: the availability of good quality content i…

Do I Need A 3D TV?

Posted on 22 Sep 2013 at 23:11PM

The past several years has seen the rise of 3D, both in the movie theaters and at home. More and more TVs are capable of 3D, causing many to ask: Do I really need this? I’ve gotten other, similar, questions, like “Is everything 3D on a 3D TV?” and “Can I get a TV without 3D?”

Well… yes and no.

What It Is

Most new TVs have the capability to display 3D. The most common source for 3D content is specific 3D Blu-rays, but certain games and a handful of cable/satellite channels also have 3D content. These TVs, generally, also have the ability to convert 2D content into 3D, but this isn’t nearly as good as “real” 3D content.<…
