3D HDMI Cable
Certain products herald the arrival of The Future. Think about the first time you saw someone using a laptop on an airplane. The first time youbought a song over the Internet. And the first flat-screen TV you saw: after decades of promises, a TV you could hang on a wall. It was like having a World’s Fair in your living room.
The flat-screen TV was a stunning change from its predecessors. And once it had been shrunken to mere inches thick, what else was there to do to it? Plenty, as it turns out.
Now if you are shopping for a television, you have new features to consider, like 3-D and LED-lit liquid-crystal displays.
Many television manufacturers – including LG, Panasonic, Samsung, Sony and Vizio – are already delivering 3-D-capable models. Cablesson have released a 3d hdmi cable to go with sony led tv. Three-dimensional imaging has come a long way since the films of the 1950s – think “Avatar” rather than “Creature From the Black Lagoon” – but you still need glasses to enjoy the technology.
Shoppers should expect to pay around $250 more for 3-D than for a comparably equipped 2-D television. Most sets come with one or two pairs of goggles; additional ones may cost more than $100 each.
Is this a cool gift for someone? Yes, it will probably be the first 3-D TV on the block. But bear in mind that 3-D programming is extremely limited, for now. (Sky and Virgin have announced a 3-D channel for the World Cup, which opens Friday, but check if your cable or satellite provider will be carrying it.) This year, the Discovery Channel hopes to introduce a 3-D channel in collaboration with IMAX and Sony, and Panasonic and DirecTV plan 3-D satellite channels.
