In Depth: Are glasses killing 3D TV?
A recent research study in the UK shows that a significant majority of 3D TV owners only own the glasses that came with their equipment, and a percentage (13%) don’t even own that.
“The glasses issue is very real,” says Jia Wu, a senior analyst at the firm. “Naturally enough, people would rather not have to wear them, but a majority of 3D TV viewers are prepared to put up with the inconvenience when the experience and entertainment value justify it.”
Of course, they claim that Price is the issue but I think a bigger issue is that people just don’t want to wear glasses. So many 3D tv producers ship crappy little glasses that, if you’re like me, won’t fit over your regular prescription glasses.
Autostereoscopic is the future.
