The present and future of post production business and technology

More good news about 3D?

More good news about 3D Don’t drink and watch. (Kind of makes it impossible to watch football in 3D!)

Samsung warns:

“Pregnant women, the elderly, sufferers of serious medical conditions, those who are sleep deprived or under the influence of alcohol should avoid utilising the unit’s 3D functionality.”

Since that describes me, about 80% of the time (sleep deprived mostly) I wonder when I could watch 3D TV if I wanted to? Also difficult to wear the 3D glasses and multitask on my laptop as I do more than half the time I watch TV.

Add to this new data point the fact that some 30% of the population cannot see 3D (stereo blindness) or find that it gives them headaches or worse, and you have to wonder why it’s so prevalent this NAB. During the week I also saw a post, but didn’t bookmark it, that indicated it wasn’t a great idea to drive after watching a 3D movie in a theater – something to do with changed depth perception after the 3D experience.

I remain 3D skeptical. I might be wrong.
