Philips unsure about 3D HDTV
Philips is busy showing off a 3D version of its 21:9 Ambilight HDTV off at IFA, but the company still isn't sure when, and if, it'll enter the 3D market. First of all, the company still hasn't decided which 3D technology to use--apparently there are three separate methods of displaying 3D picture. Only one of the three methods doesn't require those ridiculous 3D glasses, something I'm almost positive would slow the adoption process (I'm sure price would be another issue). Second of all, Philips thinks that OLED or possibly quad-HDTV (quadriple the current 1080p resolution standard) could be the next big think in HDTV. Personally I think OLED is the best of the three for the time being, should production costs come down. The good news is that Philips will support the Blu-ray 3D Standard once it's actually down on paper and ratified. Just don't expect too much, too soon.
