Panasonic Confirmed: 3D TV Sales Surpassed HD TV
The sales on 3D TV surpassed the HD TV market adoption? How true could that be?
In an attempt to recover the big investments made in 3D technology, the industry has been in survival mode for quite a while. But this time, Panasonic CTO, Eisuke Tsuyuzaki, claims that the masses have finally warmed to the 3D TV platform. According to the CTO, “Within North America, the industry shipped some 2 million Full HD 3D enabled televisions after just nine months on the market.”
While people can say that Eisuke Tsuyuzaki has a point regarding the market’s quick adoption of 3D TVs, the statement needs to contextualize. Panasonic and its competitors committed just a part of the budget to get HD TV in the market compared to 3D. In addition to this, the 3D TV platform also had a showcase film – the Avatar – to reveal what it’s really capable of, but the sales were still slow out of the gate.
Maybe 3D TV viewing can become a big business. But suggesting that the industry is where they hoped it would be is a lie.View Article Source »
