Re: 3D TVs are on the Verge of Extinction

It would be interesting to get the scoop from the commercial cinema side, but I'm guessing that forcing movie goers in that direction pushes ticket revenue up. The 3D ticket costs more - perhaps a tad more profit is built-in?

Here 3D movies in the theaters get the premium times and they tend to get put in the best/biggest theaters. Atmos with UltraAVX tend to all be 3D. Its a scam because I know many of my friends would rather see the 2D version because of the same reasons I dislike 3D (darker picture and those silly glasses) but because we all like the largest screen possible we are stuck getting the 3D.
Bingo! -- exactly the same tactics the theaters are using here in Canada -- oops, I just realized that 'tonyvdb' is a fellow Albertan as well, lol. Anyhoo, I remember being 'forced' to watch 'Fury Road' in 3D and absolutely hating the experience because of the darker picture (sound was subpar as well); sentiments that were shared by all four members of our viewing group.

Studio's can justify having them for block buster films since they charge an arm and a leg for the ticket price. People will see it for the special effects. We saw Star Wars in 3D and tickets were pricey but the special effects were incredible. Now, I can't compare to non 3D to say if it was any better or not since I didn't see 2D but the seats were full for the 3D picture.
the 3D was full because the 2D was sold out

I would be curious about the success of 3D in movie theaters. Our family is unanimous in avoiding them. But there must be a market for them as they do seem to fill seats.

Re: 3D TVs are on the Verge of Extinction

I've never taken 3D seriously simply because the drawbacks outweigh the positives - it certainly has its proponents though. It's good to see manufacturers pushing in another direction... I'll be curious to see if this has a trickle down (or, depending on how you see it... trickle up) effect on 3D movies in commercial theaters. I don't follow the commercial side of the equation all that closely, but it doesn't appear to be anything close to a cash-cow for the industry.

Re: 3D TVs are on the Verge of Extinction

While I do have a 3D TV as well as 3D Blu ray, I must admit that I only own a handful of 3D movies and that is mostly due to the fact that there are only so many good movies that are worth seeing in 3D.
I will not miss 3D but I do hope they perfect it at some point where we don't need to wear the 3D glasses in the near future.

They need to try to grossly improve customer support and especially detailed documentation with advanced products which has almost always went lacking.

Yes I surely can. If they need "gimmicks" to sell their wares, then that tells me there 'wares' are suspect!

The overblown "LED TV" scam is the best example.
