3D in your home?

Jul. 28, 2009by: Niki Stephens

Obviously over the last year there has been a rise in the amount of 3D movies being released. Well, it should come to no surprise then that 3D monitors will be introduced into the sales market. Jeffrey Katzenberg, who is the Dreamworks Animation CEO adores everything 3D and 3D related.

Katzenberg is making sure that Dreamworks is going to be number one when it comes to bringing 3D into any room that you entertain in. He's right when he says that the technology is so far beyond what it was 9 or so years ago.

There are a couple captain obvious tidbits, like for awhile we will have to wear the special glasses and that Blu-ray will be a fantastic platform for 3D.

This sounds pretty neat, but I don't know if I'd be up for buying one myself. If you feel the desire to though, they've already shipped out and will be available in your local electronic store early next year.

Extra Tidbit: What movie would you like to see in 3D? Perhaps a little MADEA'S FAMILY REUNION? I kid.

Why do some people dislike 3d so much?

Im just confused as to why everyone is so against this. Do you think it will take away from filmmakers worrying about the story and more focused on the cool factor? The same applies to CGI for a long time it wasnt applied to enhance the story it was there for the audience to be wowed at. 3D will live the same way as CGI did. First used for the effect then as the technology progresses it will become used to enhance the story.

I will never wear those glasses

Anyone who has complained about CGI should really hate this, bc now all you need to do is film a few scenes that"jump out at you" and most morons will be like, oh wow that was so cool, forgetting that the movie itself is crap. Its a cheap way to milk more money. Are they working on smell yet, that way we can actually smell the fart of the character who just did that on screen. Give me a break.

I don't see a time where the mass audience will be willing to shell out for a 3D compatible TV. It's a gimmick/distraction, and it's fun in the cinemas but basically irrelevant at home. 3D films and games need to be equally entertaining in 2D or they're just shooting themselves in the foot.

Fuck Katzenberg

The only reason Hollywood is pushing this 3D crap is to stop piracy and illegal downloads. But you can't get away from the fact that films are meant to be in 2D. I'm not against 3D as a gimmick but that's all it is - it's the emperor's new clothes.

I would have to see what the final product looks like for myself to make a valid comment. Maybe for some movies 3D would be a neat option, but for the most part it doesn't really wow me.

Maybe I'm tilting at windmills here, but I still don't understand why this particular fad keeps coming back into fashion once every generation-or-so.

And maybe it's because I wear prescription glasses, but those damn 3D glasses still give me a splitting headache.

But I also don't really understand why the theatres crank up the sound so loud that I have to wear earplugs either.

Then again, maybe I'm just getting old? Because I'm also tired of the screaming children, texting tweenies,

Establishing the 3d "standard" is the challenge

Last year, I believe it was Samsung that was very very close to releasing 3d TVs for sale (where you don't require glasses), but then issues came up about separate 3d standards that would have made SOME products compatible, while other releases would not be. I think over the last year there has been a flurry of cooperative get-togethers from several companies to establish a widespread agreement on 3d television.

I just really don't understand the need for this. I like 3D movies, but I'd rather go to the cinema for them. I think it will be awhile before this really gets off the ground.
