3D TVs was the most spoken and celebrated as a future of home entertainment. This technology now faces its destiny. The biggest TV makers Sony and LG have officially announced that they will stop making 3D TV sets. Starting 2017, Sony and LG will stop integrating 3D capabilities.LG and Sony both confirmed that none of their TVs will feature 3D movies and TV shows.

Product Development:

Tim Alessi, LG’s director of new product development mentioned that 3D capability was never really universally embraced in the industry for home use. It’s just not a key buying factor when selecting a new TV.Purchase process research showed it’s not a top buying consideration, and anecdotal information indicated that actual usage was not high. We decided to drop 3D support for 2017 in order to focus our efforts on new capabilities such as HDR, which has much more universal appeal” added Mr. Alessi.

AVTAR – One man 3D Show:

It was movie ‘Avtar’ released in 2010 shown the world the quality of 3D technology.This gave a boom to the technology.For the spectators who have guessed it ‘the future of home entertainment’. It was even harder to manage the 3D experience in the home.

“I think [the fact that Sony and LG dropped 3D] says that consumers have moved on to other purchase motivators for TV,” said Ben Arnold, executive director at NPD. “Things like 4K/UHD, HDR and even smart have become the key features along with screen size that consumers are buying on”, he added.


On a surprising note,other veterans like Samsung and Philips decided to abandon 3D TV in 2016 only.
