Bringing 3D into Home Entertainment

Bringing 3D into Home Entertainment

From outside the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center, there was a big hint on what Samsung would reveal.

Similar to most of the major announcements at this year's CES, Samsung also declared their intent to bring 3D entertainment to the home cinemas of consumers everywhere. However, Samsung went a couple of steps further than the competition by announcing a series of supporting initiatives for their push into the realm of 3D aside from just having 3D-capable HDTVs, namely by joining forces with DreamWorks Animation SKG and Technicolor to produce 3D content on 3D Blu-ray media to be enjoyed on their home cinemas.

"Monsters vs. Aliens" will be the first 3D Blu-ray movie for Samsung's latest 3D-enabled gear. The picture might not show it, but at first glance, the 3D performance was simply stunning to behold.

In order to take advantage of these new 3D Blu-ray disks, Samsung also announced the BD-C6900 Blu-ray player. Technicolor will create and produce a 3D Blu-ray disk of DreamWorks' "Monsters vs. Aliens", while Samsung will also provide their customers with several 3D selections including a short entitled "Bob's Big Break" as well as trailers for 2010 DreamWorks Animation feature film releases "How to Train your Dragon" and "Shrek Forever After" on Samsung HDTVs that come with the updated Internet@TV feature.
