3D in TVs just an added feature: Westinghouse

Boot Camp feature for Tuesday, July 5, 2011

    Viewing 3D as just an added feature.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.    Without an abundance of 3D content, TV makers have had a tough time convincing consumers to buy 3D models.   So, many are shifting gears and are pushing new TVs….with the 3D capability simply being listed as an added feature.   Westinghouse, for instance, has announced its first 3D capable screen…that will use inexpensive passive, rather that active shutter glasses.   And marketing VP Rey Roque says….

Right now, 3D is moving along more as a feature among many other features.  So it’s going to be for, perhaps, not everyday viewing.  Not all the content is going to be 3D.   And so this is really an ideal solution.  You have a great 2D set all the time.”

    The 47 inch 3D capable screen will likely retail for under a thousand dollars.    You can find us at BootCamp.com.   I’m Fred Fishkin.
