Forget HD, the future’s 3D
Now you’ve got an HD TV… what’s next? Well, it could be 3D.
You may remember the various experiements with three dimensional TV transmissions. Now, Sky’s looking seriously into providing a 3D TV service. They’ve recently demonstrated a test of 3D TV using an exitsing Sky+ HD box. The service has to be connected to a special 3D TV set. The screen needs a polarising filter, are you’re still required to wear a set of special viewing glasses.
Japan’s already running with 3D TV – just 2 hours a day, but it’s a start, and it’s believed that 3D TV sets will be debuted at Consumer Electronic Show in January 2009.
