A new report released last week by The Nielsen Company and the Cable & Telecommunications Association for Marketing has shown that while the consumer market definitely has an interest in the technology, there are a number of factors, including cost and those 'pesky' 3D glasses, which are turning them away from embracing the products.
The online article published by MYCE (My Consumer Electronics) shares: "Over two-thirds of those polled were unhappy with the current cost of 3D televisions. Additionally, 57% were not pleased with the idea of wearing 3D glasses, while 44% also showed concern over the lack of programming and content available."
The trick there is that creating the technology for a 3D TV that does not require 3D glasses is more expensive than the sets that work with the glasses. It will continue to be an interesting period as this newer technology wrestles with the consumer who will have to adopt and pay for it.
