New tech fails to drive new TV set sales

TV manufacturers try to put in all kind of new technical gimmicks to their products. Top telly tech fails to drive new set sales. The technologies telly makers are promoting in a bid to persuade punters to replace existing TVs are failing to excite consumers: LED backlight technology, internet connectivity and 3D. LED was the strongest driver, followed by internet access and, a very long way from the average, 3D (only four per cent of Q1 telly shipments).

    3D-TV, was paid a year ago, almost 2 000 prices. Now the big 3-D displays are cheaper at best less than 1 in 000.

    - Each time you will be a new feature, the products are initially expensive, and slowly lower the price goes until there is yet another story, CEO Samuli Seppälä explains.

    Study the characteristics of low end models. The so-called “3D-ready” flat-screen TVs may require an additional unit joined by a three-dimensional content can be viewed. All models are also not included 3D glasses

    Seppala does not recommend buying a 3D TV, unless the consumer is not particularly keen on the film enthusiast.

    Glasses-less 3-D, free-viewpoint coming to future TVs

    Future televisions will be smarter, more intuitive, and feature even more technically logical advanced displays, according to a panel of experts at the International Solid State Circuits Conference

    Among the technologies that will become more prevalent in coming years are glasses-less 3-D technology and free-viewpoint television (FTV) — a visual media that allows users to view a 3-D scene by freely changing the viewpoint, as if they were there, panelists said.

    part of Japan’s bid for hosting the 2022 FIFA World Cup included making FTV of all of the soccer games available. Unfortunately, Japan’s bid was not accepted

    Hirayama showed data from DisplaySearch that forecasted that the market for 3-D TVs would grow from under 25 million units and under $3 billion in 2011 to more than 200 million units and nearly $20 billion in 2018.
