The Renaissance of 3D:
How the New 3D Technologies Work
Commercial theater 3D is now firmly established, thanks in no small part to James Cameron's Avatar. Several more big releases are coming soon to 3D theaters near you, including Tim Burton's Alice in Wonderland (March), Shrek Forever After (May), and Toy Story 3 (June). These should continue to whet the consumer's appetite for more 3D entertainment in commercial theaters as well as in the home.
Last month an avalanche of 3D video products debuted at CES in Las Vegas. The momentum building toward a revolution in 3D-enabled video gaming and movies for the home looks upstoppable. Blu-ray players capable of delivering full 1080p films in 3D will hit the market by this summer. Lower resolution projectors capable of displaying some forms of 3D content from computers are already here and they can be used with active LCD shutter glasses for a higher quality viewing experience than traditional anaglyph. 3D-enabled 1080p home theater projectors will begin to appear this fall. All of this will be fascinating to watch. 2010 will be remembered as the year that 3D came home.
