3-D comes home
We've all heard of movies being watched in stereoscopic vision or "3-D," but now this cinematic experience is available in our own living rooms.
According to "Avatar" director James Cameron at the National Association of Broadcasters conference in Las Vegas, this way of viewing films at home is destined to become more prevalent, and perhaps even standard, over the next few years.
Cameron said he believes there will be "a 100% adoption" of 3D by the movie industry in the next five years. This means the possibility of watching all of our movies at home and in theaters in 3-D.
Companies have already released 3-D consumer cameras that can allow non-pro users to produce 3-D content. Flat screens are now available that also allow viewers to see this content at home.
But, according to Cameron, we can expect to watch 3-D through those red and blue glasses for at least the next 5 to 7 years, "the technology just isn't there yet," said Cameron.
Meanwhile, Cameron says studios are producing "more 3D movies than ever before" which means over the next two years we will see a spike in 3-D movie releases from countries and production studios all over the world.
