TV or No TV: The case against 3D TV
Cutting edge 3D technology is putting new meaning to the phrase â€œtrue to life.â€
Because of this latest evolution in the viewing experience, images can now be seen in three dimensions â€“ height, length and width â€“ such that you are tricked into believing that you can actually reach out and touch those people and stuff onscreen. Thatâ€™s celluloid â€œaugmented realityâ€ for you.
This technology was first mainstreamed in the world of cinema, with blockbuster films such as â€œAvatar,â€ â€œHarry Potter,â€ â€œRio,â€ â€œUpâ€ and â€œTangled,â€ but itâ€™s now coming into ordinary homes via the growing line of pricey 3D televisions.
Leading the charge of 3D television in the country is Sony Philippines, a subsidiary of giant entertainment and technology company Sony Corp. of Japan.
According to Larry Secreto, director for Bravia Marketing, sales of Sony 3D televisions have â€œsignificantlyâ€ increased this year compared to last year, when many consumers were still feeling cautious because of the global economic crisis that peaked in 2009.
