Lesson 4: 3-D TV / VIDEO Script

Al, by chance did you happen to see the article about 3-D TV in the Japan Times this week?

No, I didn’t. What’re they saying in the article?

Well, they talked about the latest Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas in January and it seems that the 3-D TVs were featured heavily in the show this year.

I see. Which companies are going to be taking up the sale of 3-D TVs and how soon? What about the cost?

Well according to the staff writer, Panasonic, who appear to be the leader in 3-D Plasma TVs and Sony, who are pushing ahead to launch new LCD-based products in the next few months are big players as is Korea’s Samsung.

Wow! I am guessing that available content is going to be the deciding factor in the success of 3-D TV. What are the manufacturers doing to make sure there is content?

Well, Panasonic are working closely with DirecTV in the US and BS broadcasting in Japan is already broadcasting in 3-D. But you’re right! Content is key!
