3D is still a buzzword in todays industry, with consoles and handhelds now supporting 3D, but glasses-free 3D television won’t be in the home for at least the next ten years.
Sony’s Sony’s “resident 3D expert” and director of SCE Studio Liverpool, Mick Hocking, discusses some of the problems facing providing big screen, glasses-free 3D TV for multiple viewers.
“We’ll probably see glasses free TVs that actually work for multiple viewers. Probably the earliest for that will be ten years, that’s still some way off,” he said.
“There are some things on the horizon, like integral imaging, which may provide a solution to it. There’s a lot of research going on but as yet no-one has managed to produce a really good glasses free screen for the large screen, for multiple viewers.”
