X Ray Specs

Last week I had a fascinating meeting with a senior contact from the broadcast industry who has been heavily involved with all aspects of 3D delivery. Despite his vested interest, it quickly became clear that 3D is set to be a car crash.

He pointed to the fact that it is already being dropped by major Far East broadcasters due to the fact that is makes viewers feel ill after a few minutes, let alone the need to wear silly glasses.

In cinema this is clearly less of a problem, but it still seems to be a transient phenomenon (and one that has failed in the past).
