Brazilians Getting Costly 3D IPTV: No Glasses Required But Fat Wallet Is

philips-3d-display.jpgBrazilians living in Sao Paulo have a real treat in store thanks to a partnership between Philips and Telefonica that's bringing 3D IPTV to the region. Better yet, 3D viewing requires no glasses thanks to Philips' autostereoscopic technology in use on the 52-inch 1080p 3D TV the company will supply. Of course, the big caveat here is the price of the TV. €18,000, making this service commercially-oriented for the time being. You also have to live in the Jardins neighborhood, where they have the fiber optic capacity to transit high-bandwidth 3D signals. "Inside three or four years", the two companies expect that the price will come down enough to appeal to the more mainstream consumer. In the meantime, why not head to theater and check out Fly Me to the Moon. Debuting today, the film is the first ever to be released solely in 3D.
