Panasonic Confirmed: 3D TV Sales Surpassed HD TV

Written on February 27, 2011 by Adam Eve

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.

The CES 2011 was practically a warzone between two of the largest television manufacturers on the planet, Sony and Panasonic, as they show off their lineup of 3D and HDTVs that leaves us mesmerized to say the least.

Sony and Panasonic, two of the world’s largest electronics manufacturer, didn’t leave a corner unturned as each of their presentation for their 3D and HDTV lineup was definitely a sight beyond anything we’ve ever seen yet. And what really caught our attention was their flagship models, the Sony XBR-HX929 and Panasonic’s VT30. And while they dish each other out by having the fanciest features and sharp designs, we just couldn’t decide who’d win this battle. Although Sony was pretty confident that by 2013, they will be the number one manufacturer in the entire world. Panasonic, and definitely other brands, would not let it happen anytime soon. Panasonic continues the streak of becoming the best. See the details of Sony and Panasonic’s flagship TVs after the break!

The invasion of 3D is going strong. From glasses to TVs to movies. Now, during the Ceatec 2010 event, a 3D camera was unwrapped.

Panasonic unveiled its latest peraphernalia on photography. It’s a 3-D consumer camera which is dubbed as the Lumix DMC-GH2 camera along with a special lens. This sweet thing costs $250 carrying a 18-megapixel imaging sensor which allows the camera to shoot 16-megapixel images. The sensory captures 1080p high definition footages at 60 frames per sec. But the huge drawback is that it outputs at 1080i.

You can still capture images using its 3-D lenses. But you cannot shoot videos with it. Erica Ogg from CNET has something to say to it.
