Brands believe this method of approaching promoting 3D permits buyers to choose whether or not they wish to utilise the feature when they’re ready, while convincing them that their newly purchased television is future-proofed. This gives customers the appearance of having the choice to utilize a feature already present in a purchase that they made, rather than making them get a technology for which they could be unready, according to the brands.
It projected 3D TV shipments would rise to 23.4 million units this year from last year’s 4.2 million units, gaining further to 159 million units in 2015. By that time, iSuppli recounted, 3D TVs would account for more than 1/2 global flat panel cargos.

North American 3-D Movie Box Office Revenue Nearly Doubles in 2010
El Segundo, Calif., March 4, 2011—Box office revenue generated by three dimensional (3-D) movies in North America nearly doubled in 2010, as more screens were upgraded to 3-D capability and studios delivered more 3-D motion pictures, new IHS Screen Digest research indicates.
North American 3-D movie theater revenue amounted to $2.2 billion in 2010, up 85 percent from $1.2 billion in 2009. The 3-D segment rose to account for 20.6 percent of total North American movie theater box office revenue in 2010, up from 11.0 percent in 2009.
Viewers Choose Passive 3D Over Active 3D TV Sets
To many people, a 3D TV set is a 3D TV set. But it’s not, there are two distinct systems being sold right now. Active and passive 3DTV are fighting it out to win the 3D format crown, and LG have released data showing that passive 3D is preferred by viewers.
Passive 3D beats Active in consumer study
Passive 3D is found in most cinemas and uses circular polarization to separate the left and right eye images on screen. Active 3D needs a power source for the specs and each lens shuts to show each eye a different image.
Active 3D specs cost between $50-$100 per pair and require batteries. Passive glasses cost around $2 or just “borrow” a pair from your local theater.
There is much arguing over the systems, with proponents of active 3D claiming less flicker and a brighter image. Of course, passive users would argue with those points, and also mention the massive savings when needing additional glasses (some TV’s ship with one pair only!)
