Vizio is not “ditching” 3D, sees glasses-free as the future of 3D
Vizio is striving for competitive pricing and as they introduce their 2014 models, including Ultra HD (4K) TVs, they have stripped 3D features to keep their price down. They continue to sell older edition 3D TVs.
Vizio sees “glasses-free” technology as the future of 3D and is showing a 4K glasses-free demo/proof of concept with 14 separate viewing angles. Last year, several companies showed proof of concept glasses-free 3D TVs but only one (Stream TV Networks) had sufficient quality. Glasses-free displays that look really good are expected to hit retailers in Q2 of 2014.
