There are skeptics who have surmised (and understandably so) that 3D TV won't get off the ground, that the current Global Recession leaves the market unripe for its production. There is also the matter of the manufacturers not having enough materials to support the growing demand.
But while this is true in many areas of the industrial spectrum, there has been a lot of interest expressed by companies from the industry and education sectors. This makes a lot of sense since the inclusion of 3D technology in the walk-through and training programs of construction, mining, and governmental industries can provide a significant improvement in the learning curve and memory retention of those who undergo them, not to mention the convenience they offer to already existing methods. For example, won't it be amazing if the medical industry can utilize 3D technology in TV monitors during surgeries? Just imagine the possibilities.
It's true that those who would rather stick with their HD TV sets are in the majority, at least for now. After all, most people have enjoyed their HD TV sets for only a few years and would like to make the most out of them. However, history dictates that people love to go with the times. New technology also dictates the materials that are being produced by the industries.
Samsung has also made a forecast that sales will increase by 20% from its previous estimate, which will bring expected sales to 45-50 million units. This explains why the company just released their two flagship plasma display 3D TV's, both 50 inch models priced between US$1,500 and US$2,000. Samsung, Sony and other competitors will also be featuring 3D TV in different modes, namely liquid-crystal panels (LCD), light-emitting diode (LED) and now plasma display panels (PDP). This should allow 3D TV technology readily available in different price breakpoints, not to mention that it can address a wide range of preferences.
The media hype surrounding HD technology has set the major companies like Sony, Samsung, etc. to ride its coattails. The race in the production of materials in HD technology is now at its most intense. Partnerships between non-competing companies have also been made to take advantage of the business potential 3D TV will bring. Examples of these are Sony with FIFA, LG with XBox 360, and Samsung with Dreamworks among others.
The 3D TV revolution is at its infant stages. The pieces, however, have already been set in motion. At this juncture, it only makes sense that we go along for the ride. You might look even dapper wearing a pair of 3D glasses.
