3D TV To Make A Come Back?

By |


ID-100168750.jpgDespite most of the big names in television all but abandoning their hopes that 3D would be a driving force behind people's television purchases, there appears to be some good news on the horizon for stereoscopic fans. A new report by Research and Markets claims the global flat panel market will increase 15.4 percent from 2013-2018. Some of this resurgence seems to be attributed to the rise of 4K technology, which is able to display more convincing and less headache-inducing 3D effects than 1080p was able to. But mainly the rise is attributed to 3D gaming, which has increased in popularity so much that manufacturers have taken notice and begun manufacturing and upgrading 3D TVs to keep up with the trend.
