3-Dimentional TV Future
Las Vegas, USA: TV, film and games media are focusing on 3D. Kids and Media attended the Consumer Electronic Show 2010 (CES), the World’s largest electronics fair. “The future is going to be exciting,” says director Oystein Samnoen.
At Samsung’s press conference during CES, Jeffrey Katzenberg, leader of DreamWorks Animation Studios announced the very first film in the new format, 3D-BD (3-dimentional film on Blu-Ray disc). DreamWorks has developed a 3D version of the film “Monsters vs. Aliens,” and the film will be launched during 2010.
We used 4 years and hundreds of artists to make the film. We are very excited about being able to give home audiences such high quality experiences,” says Jeffrey Katzenberg. “3D has now become a revolution throughout the film industry. Monsters vs. Aliens is the first animation movie made in real stereoscopic 3D. It’s the first, but certainly won’t be the last."
Samsung’s American boss Tim Baxter revealed that the company is making a large investment in the 3D format, and offers TV screens, Blu-Ray players and Home Theatres for 3D.
Kids and Media have talked to Hillary Goetz, representative for Motorola, who have also launched new technology which makes 3D possible via TV signals or Blu-Ray discs: “It’s difficult to say how fast 3D will spread because producers of home electronics, film and TV companies, and channel distributors are dependant on each other,” she said, “The public will have to buy new equipment to enjoy real 3D.”
