We’re at the stage of 3D hype during which pundits argue that 3D isn’t cutting and won’t cut the mustard.
Roger Ebert doesn’t like it for movies.
Blogger Jeffrey Goodman says glasses-free 3D isn’t being effectively rolled out for digital signage.
But those involved with deploying 3D in education environments aren’t the least bit pessimistic, as demonstrated at the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) 2011 conference in Philadelphia.
While 3D digital signage displays were lacking at InfoComm 2011, ISTE exhibitors showed 3D in various classroom and scientific research environments.
In fact, the education market may end up being 3D’s conduit to the mainstream, says Neill Salamack, channel manager for the Eastern zone of Sanyo’s digital solutions division.
“Instead of the consumer market driving 3D, we think the education market will because kids will tell their parents about what they saw [in class].”
At ISTE, Sanyo used its PDG-DWL2500 class room projector to provide a frame sequential 3D demo of biological images. Sanyo was one of many Texas Instrument’s (TI) 3D chip technology OEM partners at ISTE.
