In early August I traveled to Secaucus, N.J., and saw the future of television. My epiphany took place at the North American headquarters of Panasonic, where a prototype 3-D TV system was running on a 103-inch plasma screen with a home-theater surround-sound system. It was, in a word, stunning.

I've had a similar setup for years (within the serious limitations of the old analog tv signal). There is no question that TV is headed in this direction. The biggest drawback to a fast rollout is NOT the technology, but keeping the directors and cameramen from playing around with convergence and trying to break the "window." The second biggest drawback is that 3D works best from FIXED viewpoints. Quick intercutting is NOT practical, since it takes time for the eyes to range and comprehend the 3D image. The only way to overcome that limitation is to have adaptive lenses that simulate the other depth cue of changing focus between items that are close and those that are farther away.

They talked about this very subject on tv this morning, suppose to be coming to your home next year sometime. But they also said, it would take the right tv, and all the necessary accessories, they mentioned a price of $2000.00 which is not at all a bad starting price for that new technology.
