Though 3D is one of the biggest innovations there is, it is not big enough for consumers to take. With the recession still rampant, and with HD TVs just got affordable, what does it take for 3D devices to hit?

During the CES 2011, 3D TVs and smart TVs were two of the main categories and themes in display. Admittedly, some manufacturers think that they’ve over-estimated the sales potential of 3D devices. Consumers even showed that they are not much into 3D as of the moment. Still, manufacturers are not giving it all up. But the question still lingers: What does it take for 3D TVs to hit?

Obviously, the biggest drawback of 3D devices in home is pricing. To think that there is still recession, and many consumers just bought their HD TVs. Simply put, the price that one needs to pay for 3D must drop first, before it proliferates at home. The second issue that 3D adoption is facing is lack of content. Albeit Avatar showcased what a film could be when 3D is done well, there’s still too little high quality content available.

Ever since James Cameron’s Avatar, the word on almost everyone’s lips has been 3D. But with Scorsese giving it a go, this may be the first time 3D is viewed from a different perspective.

Although 3D received some negative press, another pioneer filmmaker in the form of Martin Scorsese is impressed with the new technology. He made it known that he was always a fan of 3D technology due to its ability to tell stories better. Scorsese also added that 3D can be an exciting challenge in film-making, as “It’s literally a Rubik’s Cube every time you go out to design a shot, and work out a camera move, or a crane move.

However, he also pointed out that there’s no need to overdo the 3D effects. With Martin Scorsese giving it a go, it is likely that the 3D technology can be viewed from different perspectives. And this can mean good news to the 3D movie industry.
