Topic Abstract:3D Video and Cinema

3D has been the hot topic of late. From Avatar, and a host of other cinematic features, all the way to the Nintendo 3DS, it’s hard to avoid. It is even coming to the home, with millions of 3DTVs and 3D Blu-ray players already sold. Major broadcasters, like ESPN, Discovery, Comcast, and DirecTV are but a sampling of the 3D services launching globally. We’ll look at where this all came from, where it is today, and where it’s likely to wind up.
