Effective Friday, three dimensional television arrived in Canada through leading electronics company Samsung. Samsung now allows for publishers, producers, and viewers to create and watch things using three dimensional viewing. Films such as Avatar, Alice in Wonderland, and Hubble 3D where scheduled for release in March, 2010. To view upcoming releases.
Yet, even today, there is a drawback to the technology. Those wishing to view the films must still dawn the 3-D viewing glasses, which today, unlike the paper ones of long ago, have advanced electronics and sell for between $229 - $249 depending on whether for children or adults.
Panasonic and Sony Canada are planning to bring their versions of 3-D television on the market in the early summer months. Although some viewers cannot wait to get their hands on the new technology, the majority of the public is still out on whether they will bother or not, as the cash outlay is expensive.
People interviewed in rural areas seem to think this is another bunch of hullabaloo about not much at all. Most of those people say they would rather go fishing or sightseeing outside, instead of sitting inside and watching life through dimensional glasses on yet another type of television. They wonder what happened to HD...Is it now on its way out in favour of 3-D?
