There were 2 impressive announcements from Sony at the press event last week, and without a doubt the biggest one they are trying to push is the range of 3D Bravia’s due for release next year.
The press conference included some example footage of the 3D used in the Bravia’s and it will be using RealD 3D technology which is the type of 3d that uses polarized images to and the sunglasses style glasses.
The footage they played included a clip from the movie Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, some 3D gaming footage of Wipeout, some nature footage and some footage of a Football game.
The Sony booth also included some TVs running the above footage.
Personally my experience was a bit hit and miss with it. I thought the football was poor however the movie, Wipeout and the nature footage were good.
Personally I am not totally sold on the 3D at home idea, I think 3D technology has some way to go before I would consider it. I don’t think it is an of the TV’s though, more a lack of quality content that shows off the 3D technology properly. I wish they had show some footage of Avatar instead of Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs, I think that may of change my perception of the 3D tech quite a bit.
