Unhappy Seth Meyers on 3D {This can't help matters ? }

Watched a replay of this, on NBC TV two nights ago. Witty humor or not a fan of 3d, I guess ? ;-)

Well, I love 3D, but this was great!

I agree about 3D at the theater. I kind of wonder on the germs on those and all that butter grease all over the lenses. If you have a Real D theater you can bring your own.

That stab at Michael Bay, ouch!

Both problems that Seth Meyers raised have been solved for home theater with my now discontinued LG OLED65E6P...no headaches, flip up polarizing filters over my eye glasses.

Yes, but not for theater. The real solution is glasses-free 3D which James Cameron is trying to push for next Avatar sequel.

Having every theater seat positioned to have a 3D image projected to each patron is a problem without a current solution.

The glasses we get at the local theater have always been sealed in the plastic......I would guess they go thru a check/cleaning process before getting repackaged.


I am NOT using someone butter funk glasses and would leave if they did not give out clean fresh and sealed glasses.


One more reason to build a home theater...


I will be venturing out to see guardians 2 as the theater has Atmos and dbox.........I want to see how it compares to my home atmos and subs directly behind my seats.

It's certainly possible given research, time and money.

Avatar 2 was pushed back again to 2020, but that's still a short amount of time for this tech to debut, perhaps in 5 years maybe in time for the 3rd or 4th release. I generally think glasses-free will be the next generation of 3D, but it's leading edge tech right now. This is stuff that will be coming in 5 to 10 years time while they get it perfected now.

Only have Dolby 3D here, no Real D so that's the kind they have to put on the charging station and every time I picked up mine at the entry, they were always dirty. Seth is right on that, obviously a little exaggerated but still, the glasses need to go.

Learn something new each day....I had assumed all theaters were passive.

But I dont get out that often anymore.....

Dolby 3D in the States don't use active glasses. They use a color filter instead of polarized. I have heard that some theaters in Europe do use an active system that require charged glasses.

I don't know, may have just been a storage rack. I just know they were covered in oil on the lenses and not easy to clean. First time I went I brought my passive glasses but that was different type so I know I can't take glasses with me.

The article says it is low resolution and the size of a small pad of paper. Being in front of my eyes at a theater in 5 years seems impossible and 10 years seems hugely optimistic.

In the late 1990's at the University of Washington's Human Interface Technology lab, I experienced with my own eyes a full-color holographic animated image of a parrot. It was floating in space in front of me--no screen, no goggles, no glasses. I also experienced voice-activated computers that could recognize speech well enough to perform commands. This was 20 years ago--voice commands have only recently become widespread, and the holograms still aren't here.

We're practically neighbors, lol. Don't think I've ever been thru that area, last time I went west was to Syracuse couple years ago, wife's grandmother passed away. Went thru Dodge City, Garden City route.

I see Seth still hasn't learned to stop staring directly into the camera. Everyone knows you are reading cues cards, but you don't need to make it that obvious.

I don't remember what it was called, but there was a guy on here (lcd displays forum, I think) a few years ago pushing his glasses-free 3D tech. It got to the point where he said there would be several sets coming out "soon" from known manufacturers but then nothing. Anyone else remember this?

No, but I know there's at least two companies: Izon and Rembrandt, they offer up to 65" glasses-free 3D displays. Hard to say whether or not the tech will make it to the big companies with the removal of 3D altogether from flat panels this year. If they add the 3D tech that would drive up the cost which a lot of consumers complained about before.

Found it. It was called Ultra-D and apparently is in Izon sets: Two Months With an Ultra-D TV

Izon has updated their website.

They play 3D HD content upconverted to full UHD. Website doesn't show price but it used to indicate the 65" was 6K, this is really not a bad price considering OLED's are about that still. They have a 27" 4K display coming, not sure on price, if it's similar to 65" pricing it would likely be in 2500-4k range. That's what the Rembrandt model is priced in from the price they quoted me. Just a little too much to use for an edit monitor right now.
