If done well on a larger screen, 3D can provide an immersive viewing experience for movies, TV programs, sports and gaming. 3D video equipment also has a way of making 2D quality MUCH BETTER on the same machine. And on some higher end equipment, movies and TV programs not recorded in
3D can be converted to 3D. Now the latter is not as effective as 3D recorded material, but it can add a sense of depth and perspective. Best of all the price has come down to only a nominal increase over 2D, however the movies can be more expensive to purchase.
Now some of the negatives. Not everyone likes 3D and some people do have perception difficulty with it. Then there is the glasses. They can be expensive especially if you have a lot of friends or a big family. They can be uncomfortable and may be the
contributor to the so-called 3D headaches.
You also have to make sure all equipment including the DVD player and receiver are all 3D enabled.
We find the previous have not been much of an issue to our clients, but the biggest setback right now is not enough content. Unless you are a fan of the Transformer series, there are few movies on the market. Animation has increased in the last year, and there are some good documentaries. While content is expected to pick up, in the meantime it is recommended you have a 3D enabled satellite box.
