3D TV might be returning

When 3D TVs became a thing just over a decade ago, they were an impossible sale:

  • Consumers had just upgraded TVs to HDTV – and were not interested in spending more money
  • There was little 3D content available via special DVDs and DVD players
  • And 2009-2011 was a time when the economy was devastated by the Great Recession

Now, things are different including that 3D content can (or could) be made easily available through streaming media, which was not available a decade ago.

Plus there are new applications for 3D. A decade ago it was for watching 3D movies – today, 3D is for gaming and business applications (think CAD). And, there is VR, which is a natural option for 3D too.

It’s a long shot, but hear us out: The stars are beginning to align for the much-maligned technology.
