DisplaySearch analyst Paul Gray predicts video games will be the driving force behind stereo-3D technology.
The hype cycle is beginning to turn on stereo-3D, as the first products are hitting the market and broadcast coverage is starting. Debates are beginning to rage on the problems and health risks of stereo-3D, and indeed whether 3D adds anything at all to the movie experience. Nevertheless, it does add immersion experience to video games.
“Many of these problems are caused by trying to shoe-horn the wide variety of visual cues into depth perception solely by stereoscopy. Those contradictions are understood to cause eyestrain. However, source material that is computer-generated does not have such problems and can be pre-compensated,” said Paul Gray – director of European TV research at DisplaySearch.
