I'm slightly out of the loop here, but is 3D any good yet? Not seen any 3D films.

They keep trying to foist the bloody technology on us and all I ever here is "pointing and pointy things coming out the screen".

Even Sky may try and get in on the bandwagon. Which taken the speed of HD implementation, I have to wonder why the hell they want to divide their effort even more.

I've been wondering about this as well. They keep on about how they need special equipment to show them in cinemas as well. Which is why Beowulf 3d became Beowulf in most places. Going to be like the Star Wars prequels when George Lucas filmed in Digital believing all cinemas would upgrade to digital projectors.

But apparently James Cameron's Avatar is meant to be 3D and it's meant to be the greatest thing ever even though no one knows anything about it. Then if we have to wear the glasses that could be off putting. I actually saw Spy Kids 3D in the cinema and we all had to wear those cardboard glasses. Of course it didn't help that I already wear glasses so I was trying them both in front and behind the glasses but was annoying. The 3D parts seemed to work though.

I'd love to know how they plan to do it on your TV. Most of the cinema methods involve polarised light.

Or just do the old red/blue glasses trick ;)

I'm still waiting for holodecks. :geek:

I was never in an IMAX theatre but didn't they use glasses? Though does that mean the screens have to be like 500 feet in size to get the effect? :P

Nah, they just use 100hz or greater TVs and a synchronised set of shutter glasses. So the TV ends up showing two lots of 50hz image.

There is currently no way to get video to a TV at 100Hz...

All sounds like a silly idea to me.

By that you mean analogue or standard digital broadcast? Plenty of bandwidth on Sky HD or through HDMI.

I had a look and Sky are going to use polarised glasses though. :puke:

So just to watch a handful of things, would need to upgrade to state of the art technology, spending probably a couple thousand?

I'll pass.

Isn't it like upgrading to Sky HD when there are only a handful of stations using it so far? Though it looks like SKY HD have a rare version of MTV that shows music videos.

Sky HD is pretty much mature now.

Box can be brought £49

BBC HD
C4 HD
Sky1 HD
Sci Fi HD (Pretty pointless tbh, they were showing Firefly in 4:3 FFS)
Sky Arts HD
MTV HD
FX HD
Eurosport HD
Rush HD
National Geographic HD
Discovery HD
History HD

9 Sky Movies HD

3 Sky Sports HD

And a few SBO HD too.

Those are the ones I can remember anyway.

Sky channels I watch are Sky 1, Bravo, Sci Fi, FX and well would watch Heroes on BBC if it was on.

As for 3D, I see Bolt is also known as Bolt 3D.

How long until the porn industry gets in on the act? :oink: Debbie Does 3D?

I don't normally adventure into this forum, but I noticed this discussion about 3-D stuff.

It reminded me about this article I read on Gamespot about GeForce 3D vision.

Also about monitor refresh rates. I believe 120Hz LCD monitors are in the pipeline; they might even be out now?

BT

Just read my local cinema got the 3d projectors installed in 2 of their screens and have admitted prices for 3D films will be higher than normal. Also we would need to wear glasses which have to be returned. Wonder how many people will walk on by the person collecting them and say they left them on the seat.

Now I hope they learn to use the projectors but I doubt it since they can barely use the existing projectors they've had up until now.

Oh joy, yet another 3D system. This seems to be worse than the HD/Blu-ray farce.

What new 3d system?

Well they thought the HD-DVD would win that format war due to the porn industry adapting it. :P

The problem with writing stuff in trade journals where you think the unwashed masses won't get to see it, is that there is usually someone somewhere who lets everyone know. :D
