I attended the The Future of 3D HD Stereoscopic Television presented by Quantel this morning in Manhattan and I’ll be posting an online video about it when I get a chance. I also was at the Web Analytics Wednesday last night at AvenueA-Razorfish and I took some footage there as well – I’ll post about both here and at Webmetricsguru.com today (if I have time).
Here’s the thing about 3D HD Stereoscopic Television – it’s just a technology and it’s hard for me to get that excited about Technology, by itself. Putting on what appeared to be regular sun-glasses, I could easily see convincing depth once the room was darkened and the projectors were running – but I didn’t feel that I enjoyed what I was looking at any more than I’d have, had I not had the 3D HD Stereoscopic view (normal state of watching television or movies).
And, most of what was featured was improvements in post production – real time changes that could not have been made before – in other words, faster throughput – more power in correcting defects.
Was it worth getting up 2 hours earlier than usual for me to attend this breakfast? Maybe, or Maybe not – I did talk with a few people I know and made a few more contacts.
Even if we could buy a TV so equipped today – you have live in Japan, so I’m told – World’s first 46-inch stereoscopic 3D TV from Hyundai on sale in Japan – I think I’d enjoy some things a little more – but it would not honestly change my life:
However, what I saw today was much like this – except projected to a much larger screen – same glasses.
From an Analytics point of view – I’d think there’d be more “engagement” using this technology (until the novelty wears off).
