3D glasses not a problem

with one comment

3d-shuttersDo you feel silly wearing 3D glasses? If so, you’re in a minority, according to an ongoing study by 3D advocacy group Meant to Be Seen as part of its U-Decide Initiative. The consumer survey found that 12 percent of those inexperienced with 3D object to wearing 3D glasses for video games, a number that jumps to almost 30 percent for 3D broadcast television. Experienced 3D customers are even less with just 3 percent critical of wearing the glasses for video game playing and 12 percent for watching broadcast television. Blu-ray movies fall roughly in the middle for both types of consumers.

Neil Schneider, president and CEO of Meant to Be Seen, disclosed these and other preliminary findings during a panel I moderated at the 3D Entertainment Summit. Check out the study or join in yourself – it runs until the end of the year, with random prizes for participants – at U-Decide Initiative.
