Verizon Fios 3D TV is Coming!
There’s no question that 3D TV will be the next flashy development in home entertainment. The surge in equipment suppliers displaying 3D TVs at this year’s Consumer Electronics Show foretold that 2010 would be the year 3D emerged.
And, of course, there’s the theatrical success of “Avatar” on the big screen, giving millions of people their first taste of 3D not generated by red and blue lenses in cardboard frames.
Just this month, 3D TVs and projectors have gone on sale. NOTE: You need a special 3D-ready TV to see 3D at home; a regular HD TV, even a new one, won’t show 3D. That’s because it’s the TV set that takes a 3D video feed, with separate channels created for each eye, and allows stereoscopic perception of the images.
Verizon’s network can easily handle the 3D signal, and we are committed to having a 3D offering later this year, surely in time for the holiday tech buying season, when the penetration of 3D-ready sets increases. Just as we did with HD, we’ll bring the broadest range of 3D possible to the market supported by the best technology and customer service.
Verizon Fios is actively at work developing its 3D strategy and service options. Fios Video-on- demand, Fios pay per view and Fios broadcast choices are in play. Verizon is focused not only on the most content, but also on the best customer experience. That’s why you’ll see Fios enter the market with a rational, satisfying 3D package, not flashes of 3D titillation.
So stand by. Fios 3D is coming to a flat screen near you, as things sort out and the market catches up to the technology.
