3D TVs to boost TV market in 2010
BEIJING, Jan. 11 (Xinhuanet) — Many TV giants are displaying a new generation of TVs — the 3D TVs, in one of the biggest electronic shows in the world, the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas, to boost the market, according to news reports on Monday.
Panasonic expects to sell 1 million 3D TVs in 2010, hoping the new technology will satisfy consumers’ latest curiosity.
“It’s a challenging market. We need something to kick us out of this,” said Panasonic’s Elsuke Tsuyuzaki.
Many CTOs eye this year as really a breakthrough year for the 3D screen technology, as the latest 3D movie “Avatar” has topped world box office for weeks since its release.
According to statistics from the movie industry, this year around 20 out of 170 movies will be made in 3D, double the number from last year.
TV corporations will not stand aside and see the boom in the 3D movie market, as pointed out by Jeffrey Katzenberg, the head of Dreamworks Animation, “While 3D has taken many years to penetrate in the movie theatres, I believe 2010 is the year it will begin to enter the living rooms.”
