TV makers seek depth, adding a third dimension


This year, superficial was out at the nation's largest electronics gala. Every exhibitor at the International Consumer Electronics Show, it seemed, wanted to show some depth. Depth as in 3-D, that is.

Home theaters, webcams, live TV and even iPhone-sized screens — nothing escaped the 3-D treatment.

"There's three or more times more 3-D than last year," said Richard Doherty, an analyst with Envisioneering Group.

But will consumers care? Three-dimensional movies have been around since the '50s, and now and then companies try to get people interested by broadening the use of the technology. This time, the breadth of the industry's push suggests that 3-D has a chance of leaving the gimmick stage and entering the entertainment mainstream.
