whither 3D Tv?

In all this talk of the new trends and predictions  in displays, the much touted about  the 3D displays seem to have vanished from the discussion forums.

Has that technology reached a dead end?

You are absolutely right. Not much talk on 3D. But in the case of 3DTV, the issue is more of the usability than anything else.

The money is poured into UDTV, OLED, and definitely the biggest target for everyone is "mobile."

I donot think that technology has reached a dead end but its premature market. Mostly there is little content available for 3D TV. Unless there are thousand of movies, series, commericals and general content available i do not see 3D going anywhere. Also, the consumer hardware that can capture 3D videos and pics should be first thing to develop to increase the 3D content.

I think one of the main issues is resolution and field of view.  When you are looking at 3D for it to be real looking you need to have a wide field of view which is very hard to to in anything but a theater.  Of course source material is also an issue although resolutions is is incredibly getting better and better - 4K is incredible after just these few years.

Actually though I think the underutilized function of 3D is that switching in that you can show two totally different shows - need to figure out the autio better - and I remember seeing 3 different shows from the same TV on a TI micro mirror display. 

Now that we all want different programming and we want it NOW you either leaver the room and watch on you TV, Ipad, Phone or whatever....  Makes watching TV more of an individual experience then it used to be a few years ago...

@Chris,

Oh! I did not know that a 3D Tv could show multiple channels simultaneously.

Thta will be a very good feature for families  men can watch their favourite sports channel while women can simultaneously get engrossed in their daily soaps.

Just wondering why no company has yet exploited this feature

It is a current feature (multi-view), but you have to wear glasses - the frames sych at the same time rather then left/right for 3D - the sound is also an issue too...  

Performed a little research to find the name they use for this feature and found this article - they say 10 (OLED) differrent shows and Samsungs glasses shown in the article have built in sound...  www.smithsonianmag.com/innovation/people-can-now-simultaneously-watch-different-shows-on-the-same-tv-180947762/

wearable devices vs car infotainment

Between wearable devices and car infortainment, the latter has better chance to boost display market growth. Wearables will have smaller display and will be full of high end mems sensors and IC devices. However the car infortainment will need high end display devices and touchscreens for entainment purpose. Also the flexible displays can find better market in automobiles than anywhere else.

@wilber_xbox, totally agree. If the Touch Taiwan conference were any indication, it looks like carmakers are actually placing a lot of orders for their various screens!

oh yes, and one more thing. A new trend is making the "touch screen" in a car as close as to that of media tablets. You don't want the car display to be something as primitive as "push here button" type of touch screen, but rather much more fluid as that of tablets.  

It's obvious, but it means a boon to touch screen companies!

In-Cell vs. On-Cell technologies

The In-Cell vs. On-cell technology seems to be heating up. Although those who supply to Apple pretty much seem to believe that "in-cell" is the only way to go.

Touch screen notebooks will hit the wall?

Touch screen vendors did enjoy the surge for the touch screen demands from notebook computer guys in the second half of last year. 

I am curious to find out if it is indeed hitting the wall this year...what do you think?

Well, I agree with JP Pang telling of 'laws of physics":

Using a somewhat vertical touchscreen do not need that much time to turn painful.

I assume neither do people not need time to understand it.

What we think about Screen on wall so painting a wall can be eliminated.

Screen are getting thinner day by day, this can change the whole market
