|Everybody talks about 3D technology. And Hollywood has invested millions of dollars in 3D cinemas. 3D films are well established in cinemas nowadays. In 2009, 3D movies had a 10 percent market share. And home theater manufacturers like Sony, Panasonic, Samsung and others will also be launching 3D TV sets in the US sometime mid-2010. The Blu-ray Disc Association has adopted the Blu-ray 3D specs. "A Christmas Carol" is to be the first three-dimensional film. Twenty 3D films will be released on Blu-ray this year. According to an opinion poll, around 80% of movie goers who have seen a 3D film on the big screen want to watch the movie in 3D at home, too. Threedimensional films are a great opportunity for an unforgettable home cinema experience. The most successful film of all times is Avatar which was filmed in 3D.
"Stereoscopic 3-D is the most exciting evolution in cinema presentation since color and widescreen. The question for film-makers is not 'why 3 D?,' since the reasons are obvious, at least to audiences, and the negatives have all been removed. The question should be 'how do I make 3D a part of my art?'"
3D movies generated over $1 billion at theatrical box offices worldwide this year, and when a movie is projected in both versions, the 3D showings typically bring in more than double the revenue of the regular screenings.
Ron Epstein from the Home Theater Forum.
“We’ve seen Mitsubishi’s 3D, Panasonic’s. Nothing comes close to what [Panasonic has],” he said. “Blu-ray players have reached their zenith. 3D is the technology to beat.”
