"3D" articles

By Kurt Scherf, Contributor TVs make for good eye-candy, and there were plenty of huge displays to be seen from all of the major manufacturers. This year’s hot topic was “Ultra High-Definition” televisions (also known as “Ultra HD” or “4K” sets. In layman’s terms, these are televisions that vastly increase the number of pixels, and therefore the resolution, on TVs. Having seen them up close at the 2012 CES, I can verify that the picture image is stupendous, and...

The record-breaking box office success of “The Avengers,” in large part due to higher-priced 3D tickets, will increase consumer demand for access to 3D movies at home, according to analysts.

Swindon-based British company Dialog Semiconductor has created a chip that can perform real-time 2D to 3D conversion for mobile devices, including phones and tablets. The DA8223 also contains a parallax screen driver that, when combined with a parallax barrier filter, will create 3D images to be viewed without glasses. It works by analysing each 2D video frame and creates a layered depth map, bringing forward foreground objects and sending backgrounds to the rear of the image -...

Step into any electrical store and you can't escape the way TV manufacturers have designated this to be the 3D Christmas. There are plenty of sets vying for attention, none of which are definitively the best; although, in this area, plasma screens currently seem to have the upper hand over LCDs. More exciting are the other devices starting to overcome the obstacles inherent in 3D technology. With much of the content, for instance, originating in the cinema, a projector seems a natural...

Jim O'Neill wrote a very nice overview of 3DTV on FierceIPTV . The concept of 3D is becoming more of a reality as 3D-ready consumer electronics become more affordable and the availability of content increases. There are many obstacles on the way to success: low consumer engagement, difficulties in marketing 3DTV effectively, advertising issues, etc. However, as I told Jim, "there is no doubt in my mind that 3D is here to stay, and it will be a standard feature in sets...
