Is Glasses-Free 3D Doomed?
Five reasons glasses-free 3D was a no-show at InfoComm 2011.

June 27, 2011 By Jeffrey Goodman

Glasses-free 3D isn’t doomed, but the technology was a virtual no-show at infoComm 2011.

It certainly has been interesting to watch the rise of 3D.

It seems as though there are reports every day either about why 3D is a successful format that is here to stay or why it is DOA and a commodity feature.

At present, it can be difficult to distill the facts that would allow us, as integrators, to form a long-view opinion about 3D and how it may affect the commercial A/V business.

But one thing is certain: glass-free 3D (autostereoscopic) was barely present at Infocomm 2011. While I may have missed a booth or private showing, I counted two glasses-free 3D displays on the floor: Planar and Black Box, which was supported by 3D International, based in Germany.

Given all of the press that 3D is receiving, why was glasses-free 3D a no-show?

For the reasons outlined here, among others, both the demand and the technology itself have been slow to progress. 

Glasses-free 3D may not yet be a mature technology, but it has reached a level where integrators who take the time to choose network components properly will have a unique, high quality product to add to their portfolio. 

I believe this is only the calm before the storm.
