Will 3D Viewing Ever Really Catch On?

From the childhood delight of 3D Viewmasters to multicoloured lenses in cardboard spectacles to the mind boggling effects of the latest 3D Nintendo DS; 3D viewing has continued to surprise us over the years. With a large amount of 3D films filling our local cinemas, you may think that 3D has become the norm for film viewing but has 3D really become our preference when it comes to entertainment?

The 3D Experience

Modern 3D viewing sees hundreds of cinema goers sitting munching popcorn in the cinema; their faces obscured by what appears to be sunglasses as they feast their eyes on the latest 3D treat but are these glasses that need to be worn the main issue for cinema fans? While 3D glasses have vastly improved over the years, many people still complain that 3D glasses give them headaches or that the action of wearing them interferes with the enjoyment of the movie.

While a large proportion of people in the UK own a television, the percentage of those who own a 3D television is miniscule in comparison, so why would this be the case? 3D films and TV programmes look absolutely stunning and the realism in modern 3D filming is second to none, but another problem that has to be faced is that there are many people for whom 3D is a gimmick.

High Demand for High Definition

When High Definition television was introduced, due to the fact that it was television made clearer with no need for specialised glasses or any other additional items (other than a HD TV of course), the format really caught on and while some people may consider it a gimmick, it has become very important to viewers. Perhaps 3D just arrived at the wrong time this time?

Admittedly 3D viewing has been introduced many times over the years in various guises but often sank without much of a trace and even though 3D television is innovative and attractive, after the rollout of HD ready televisions; was anyone really ready to shell out on a new 3D television? Many people may already have a television with HD capability or they may have purchased a mk802 xbmc to view Android TV and take advantage of the full range of entertainment possibilities on the television that they already own so paying for a 3D television on top of all of that may be seen as something of a problem in these cash strapped times. At least with add-ons, they can be purchased without replacing the entire thing so users may have eschewed 3D in the wake of having purchased their HD TVs.

Adding to the Fun?

Also, does 3D really add anything to a film? Some new films were carefully filmed in particular formats especially for 3D to make them more atmospheric but people grumbled very vocally over the internet both before and after seeing these 3D films. Even though cinema ticket prices are sometimes considered high by consumers, 3D films often require an extra fee and so putting up the price of an evening out which could put people off further.

Realistically, 3D viewing is actually breathtaking and some films and television shows and even live events are made much more spectacular with the addition of 3D so while the format may not be as popular as traditional viewing, it seems here to stay. With new advances being made all the time in television and the 50th Anniversary of Doctor Who being broadcast in 3D, perhaps the age of 3D is not quite over yet.

The Perks of Blu Ray and Blu Ray Players
Picture Quality
Superior high def resolution is a huge element of the reason why Blu Ray movies look excellent. This means you'll see a much more detailed picture: much more clearly defined features of people faces, colors of nature, close ups of wrinkles, facial imperfections, etc. The technological distinction is that Blu Ray's maximum resolution is 1920 x 1080 (1080p), while DVD is restricted to 720 x 480 (480p). Further than image resolution, Blu Ray additionally employs much better video-compression methods, producing much more contrast as well as better colors. It truly is the best quality of video you can get inb the market today, with a comparable, if note better than picture that you get at the movies, when the Blu Ray player is used in conjunction with an HDTV.

Audio Quality
Audio quality is also much better. New high-resolution soundtrack formats, such as Dolby TrueHD and DTS-HD Master Audio, are basically the same as the studio master, consequently you will be hearing sounds just as the director and audio editors designed.

Special Features
Blu Ray also has extra unique functions that DVD never did. The most basic innovation is the pop-up menu, allowing one to access the menu features as the movie keeps playing. Also, there is BD-Live, picture-in-picture video commentary, Internet connectivity, including models with built-in Wifi for streaming movies, videos, tv shows and all kinds of media from the Web.

BD-Live

On some movies you'll be able to download a variety of up-to-date content (for example, refreshed previews and exclusive special features). There are also a host of next generation possibilities, such as ringtone/wallpaper downloads, peer-to-peer interactions, live events and gaming activities. For example, on the Blu Ray version of Julie & Julia with BD-Live, you can bookmark Julia Child's actual recipes while you watch the movie. At the end of the film, you can e-mail yourself the recipes, pretty cool!
Bonus View
The Bonus View and lets you play back picture-in-picture content, which allows for a second video and audio stream.
