3DTV. Is It For Real?
If you think that the 3D is a new technology, then, you are mistaken. In fact, it already made its way in the theatres way back in the 1950s. Their presence caused a lot of excitement to the viewers basically because it was something new in their eyes. However, an optimum viewing experience was not provided by those cardboard made glasses and the old technology being used at that time. A few decades afterwards, IMAX theatres made waves in the market scene. 3D movies have become more promising. Of course, 3D TV has also been thought of by the very competitive television manufacturers. What they have in mind is to let each and every consumer enjoy that theatre feeling even when inside their homes.
Yes, the 3D TVs are equipped with such a high-end means of technology and can now be installed in the living rooms of the homes. Apart from the 3D movies such as Avatar, Coraline, Toy Story, Final Destination, and many others, there are now television broadcasts that are transmitted via three-dimensional technology. In a matter of years or months, many television channels and cable providers will soon be engaged in the transmission of 3D broadcasts. In fact, 3D television manufacturers are now dealing with some stations regarding the broadcasting of news, programs, sports, and games using the said technology.
So, what should a consumer have before he can finally enjoy that 3D experience at home?
Simply speaking, there should be an available programming provider in the area that can transmit in 3D. As of the moment, many stations are now planning out their moves to serve their patrons 3D channels and soon enough, the rest will surely follow. The HDTV packages are not yet certain if they will involve additional charges or not.
The next step is to have a 3D TV installed in the home. The market already has different brands and models of the said television and as expected, they are more expensively priced than that of the flat screen HDTV models which are also present. Shutter glasses should likewise be purchased. They are the ones that pick up the signal from the transmitter and then synchronize with it.
For those who want to watch DVD movies in 3D, they should be ones that have been recorded using the said technology along with a 3D Blu-Ray player. The cost of which will again depend on the brand name.
When it comes to the cost of a brand new 3D TV plus the other accessories that come along with it, again, it may be reasonable or unreasonable depending on the type of consumer. Someone who has the funds and is capable of the purchase will not have any problem at all. But those who are on a tight budget may struggle to deal with the current price. If the reason is to upgrade, then, it will be wise to wait for another year or so. It is to be expected also that other models will come out anytime and that will add up to your choices.
