There’s either the current craze going on in the TV world or ‘waiting for the next craze’ going on in the TV world. Right now, it seems we’re waiting. Two years ago, TV manufacturers, retail shops, consumers and TV stations were preparing for the 3D TV craze. But, it didn’t happen. At least not yet or in the near future.
3D TV sounds really cool and exciting and maybe it will be but right now it’s not. The most recent example is ESPN canceling its 3D programming after this year. And, sports programming is the best predictor of what is hot in the TV market.
3D TV makes some people sick then there are glasses you have to wear. While new TVs being shipped are 3D compatible, the purchases haven’t jumped as much as thought in early predictions. However some have noted a lack of content as the major obstacle in 3D TV saturation. If TV shows won’t broadcast in 3D then why buy one.
However, some manufacturers offer 3D TV’s that can convert 2D to 3D allowing all 2D programming to be enhanced to almost 3D quality. This is probably the single most important feature of the top 3D TV’s.
As of now, the biggest trend is in LED TVs. Tomorrow, though, who knows. Experts believe 3D TV will catch on but right now the technology, programming and consumer demand remain flat. (Pun intended.)
