  • Future of 3D Entertainment

    There will be three different (publicly available) ways to watch 3d tv or 3d videoes from different devices.

    One will include hologram technic, physically matching angles for eyes; so this will not require eyeglasses.

    Secondly, people will be wearing circular polarized glasses in home, while watching tv or movies. This is the way you see today in “Real 3D”.

    Third technic is a little bit confusing, it’ll be based on hitting the light to the surfaceyes those different in size. 360 degree view will also be availabe with this technic. However you won’t need to wear an eyeglasses for this, it’ll be hard to capture those videos. So there will be only one angle at a time, that you can not freely rotate the view.

    However nearly all of these technics are under development, only the second one is ready for public. We may expect to see similar technology in our cellphones and watches. These are not science-fiction.
    Tv stations will be outputting left & right eye’s video streams seperately. So it’ll be the tv viewers choice to select the 3D mode and combine those video streams and watch it in 3D, or selecting only LEFT or RIGHT stream and watch it in 2D as now. This requires some significant changes in tv broadcasting systems. So this will work only some local/special centers for some time. In the near future number of the people who go to the cinema/theatre to watch the movie will increase, because they will not be easily reproducing the effect and quality of that 3D. Many filmmakers nearly leave 2D and educate themselves related to 3D filmmaking.
    Technology is not something that you create something from nothing, but combining technologies together to create a new one. However many this are invented, you’ll see them many years later, because it’s not easy to announce it to public or to produce it or to prepare necessary infrastructure because of the money and the time. ( also you’ll not see many of them because they’ll keep your mouth shut… )

    Let’s see which one will win..
