Default 3D television

About an hour ago I watched 3D TV for the first time, there are no 3D transmissions at this time so it was a demonstration disc. Well, the first surprise was when I was asked to read a disclaimer! this was a long list of medical conditions, any one of which it advised not to watch 3D! These included heart problems, epilepsy, headaches, pregnancy and drunkenness!
I was sober but have had heart troubles but I just had to see it. The electronic glasses are not much bigger than a pair of sunnies and as light. The picture really is genuine three dimensional but, the young couple who viewed it before me had the same opinion as me, very clever but would be a strain to watch it for extended periods. The set was a 55" LED LCD 3D Samsung.
I'm still feeling a little nauseous and would be interested in hearing from anyone else who has seen a demonstration, or better still has one.
The price was quoted as $A4500.00

I've been amazed at the quality of video that is produced now with the HD televisions, and I think that with the millions of sharp colors that can be produced things look pretty lifelike as it is now, without the need to go 3D. I can't get my kids to put the tv remotes back in a spot I can find them, I don't know where they would lose the 3D glasses....

I'm hoping this whole 3D craze will go away soon when the novelty wears off again. I hate the fact that all the movies are being made in 3D, which is just another way to get an extra $5 a ticket. Lately movie producers think special effects and gimmicks are more important than the actual content in the movie.

If I want to see things in 3D, I'll go outside and experience real "reality".

I'm sure that it's going to be an expensive five minute wonder Doug and what I forgot to mention is that you will also have to buy a Bluray player, 3D discs won't play on a DVD player. I would love you to look at one to see you're impression.

I probably wouldn't enjoy it much. I have one eye that is dominant, which affects my depth perception in everything I do. The 3D I have experienced in movies, etc has been a mixed success. Still, it may be worth a trip to the store just to check it out, it's amazing what the minds of engineers can come up with!

I haven't tried a 3d tv,but I did go and see Avatar at the cinema in 3D. I was prepared for a new revolution in the technology. I was first disapointed by the uncomfortable glasses I needed to wear, and then again when those glasses cut off my peripheral vision by about 5%. As a juggler, I have very wide peripheral vision and I can wear very few glasses that don't annoy me.
Finally i was disappointed by the fact that the effect seemed no different to the last time I had seen a 3D movie 20 years ago !
Some effects look great, untill they reach the edge of the screen and cease to be, but over all it's a distracting uncomfortable experience.

I would like to find out if 3D tv is any different.

I forgot to say I was disappointed with the movie in general despite the 3D.

So true Doug,the very concept of alternating two pictures on the screen at high speed and relaying the information by infra red to the glasses to alternately switch the LCD lenses is brilliant, but to actually get the idea into mass production amazes me in spite of my 50 years in consumer electronics.

I agree with bobj, just another gimmick from the tv makers, kinda like digital tv. I think that was a hoax implemented by our gov,t and the manufacturers. I have a hdtv and there aint that much difference afaic.

I haven't had the opportunity to checkout the 3D sets yet, but I doubt it's anything I'm going to be interested in. I thought the exact same thing when I heard of it, it'll cause strain on my eyes.

Well seeing as I don't have a television of any kind I really can't see the advantage. (snigger) Now when they come out with a 3d Johny Walker maybe I'll give it a try. Oh wait what am I saying? they have come out with a 3d J W it's up,down and flat on the floor.

Retirement is easy, but You really have to work at it.
