      Curious seeing as they were one of the first manufacturers to drop 3D entirely from their range.

      I find this quite bizarre really. The TV industry declared that 3D was dead, but yet they are happy to invest in 3D cinemas. Hmmm :confused:

      48 nits. How does that compare to the brightness of a 2016 LG OLED TV viewed through 3D glasses? I'm guessing not well. Granted, it's a much bigger screen, and you're guaranteed to be in a light-controlled room, but even so, that strikes me as still not bright enough.

      The brighter the visual information is, the more our eyes receive the three-dimensional impression. Therefore, we had to develop a new product that delivers the same brightness of Cinema LED, which is 48 nits, even while wearing the 3D glasses. We also could not sacrifice the resolution. It’s clear that lower resolution equals a lower sense of reality.”

      So the brightness should be like watching a regular movie at the cinema.

      It seems a case of follow the leader with tv they hear someone's doing something like curve TV and a number of others follow suit, one decides to drop 3D TV's and one by one they drop them.

      Wait, I'm confused. Is this for TV or an actual glasses-free 40ft cinema going experience?

      Cinema

      Edit: Not glasses free though, but supposed to not darken the image like you're watching through sunglasses like current cinema 3D.

      3D failed in the home due to the size of the screens. Sure, some people like it but on the whole average size screens at normal viewing distances don't work well with 3D. Cinemas have the scale to provide an immersive experience which is why the format is still making money.
      Personally, I don't have much time for it in either setting, unless it is done really, really well, and then only on the biggest screen I can find, preferably Imax.

      Will be interesting to see how it handles crosstalk and dark scenes. I wonder how much power this would use, Makes you wonder if this is really necessary compared to a standard projector.

      I agree. But the tech has now reached the point where it just works so long as people can get a big enough screen, and screens are getting bigger every year.

      If more people knew how good the latest Epson projectors (tw7300 and tw9300) for 2k and 3k (i.e. expensive TV price) and/ or the 2016 LG passive OLED tech, and if 3D could be streamed...3D would be a legitimate feature in more homes.

      Definitely. Projectors are a different matter, which is why they still support the format. They are still a relatively niche product though.

      this sounds awesome! I watch almost every 3D film that comes out so anything that will enhance that feature then I'm in on!

      Hmm it seems a bit small for a cinema screen but massive for a tv? would have to scale up to be relevant I guess.

      Sounds like the whole thing can go brighter so that's why it's "normal" brightness for 3d, imagine it's still going to have to filter out.

      I didn't mind gravity in Imax 3d, everything else has just kind of annoyed me and so just never go for it. I reckon Gravity would have been just as immersive on the same screen in 70mm 2d tbh

      The amazing thing here is that they have produced very high quality display panels 33 ft across, when many of us are looking towards 65 inches!!!. The 3d bit is essentially an after thought and just involves the shutter glasses and reasonable fast switching LEDs.
      I can see these going into lecture theatres in the near future.

      Will there be a price reduction in time for the World Cup?

      You're right of course. I do wonder whether and how much the projector market might be able to grow over the next few years though. I don't think it will replace TV of course, but I do think projectors have a chance to become much more mainstream. This has already started to happen with young people buying cheap LED projectors (they're cheaper and much more portable than many TVs). I think the quality is there for the first time now in the 2-3k price bracket to replace the largest TV in many households with a suitable wall.

      For the 1k market I think Epson and competition should perhaps look into bluetooth transmission and passthrough of audio as most people have bluetooth speakers/soundbar these days. It would be a better option than built-in speakers for most home situations where an AV receiver is absent.
