Company plans slate of 3D-based enhancements

Sony has announced an initiative to bring 3D visuals to several of its products, beginning sometime in 2010. Central is a 3D-compatible BRAVIA TV, which should use a frame-sequential display, and require active-shutter glasses. The company is promising a high framerate, as well as a 1080p resolution for each eye. No prices or narrowed release dates have been suggested.

Sony's PlayStation 3 console and VAIO PCs should also gain some form of 3D support, though the company has declined to offer specifics beyond 3D-capable games.

The adoption of 3D in movies and electronics is typically considered by commentators to be a defensive move. In the film industry 3D is believed to be a way of drawing audiences to cinemas, while also deterring camcorder piracy. HDTVs are meanwhile approaching a commodity state, prompting many companies to search for means of keeping prices inflated. 3D has not taken off at home however, in part because of the rarity of sets and the inconvenience of glasses.
