The Migration to 3D TV: Panasonic's CTO

Techstination feature for Wednesday, July 14, 2010

The migration to 3D TV. It's coming faster than you think. I'm Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear. It's one of those old what comes first....the chicken or the egg... dilemmas. Consumers want to make sure there is 3D content before they purchase 3D capable TVs. And those providing content want lots of 3D capable TVs out there....before they invest in the 3D programming. That's a big reason why Panasonic has forged a partnership with DirecTV, which has now launched a trio of 3D channels available to its high definition subscribers. Panasonic chief technology officer Eisuke Tsuyuzaki ...

"To answer the chicken and the egg, the plan is by 2013, 70 percent of all our flat panels or large screen flat panels will be 3D enabled. So we believe it's a feature that will become more prevalent based on consumer demand as well as what we've seen from the theatrical experience. "

And more TVs will lead to more 3D programming. You can find us with archives, interviews and more at I'm Fred Fishkin.
