Las Vegas, NV (KTNV) -- Hundreds of exhibitors have the latest in electronic media on display at the National Association of Broadcasters show, and everyone's talking about 3D.
More than 90,000 attendees are taking in all of the new technology at the NAB show, and this year, one of the topics in the spotlight is 3D technology.
Academy Award-winning filmmaker and director James Cameron had everyone listening on the first day of the event. Cameron's goal is to integrate quality, affordable 3D into a 2D market.
"We're going to try to minimize to zero the difference that you're going to have to pay and the difference in the amount of work, and I think that's the only way that we're going to break this log jam of content and get that content flowing," Cameron said.
Cameron is optimistic 3D will make its way to your living room and onto local broadcast.
A Japanese company has plans to eliminated the need for 3D glasses with the creation of the largest glasses-free 3D projector in the world.
"It's quite natural with quite good quality," Dr. Kazumasa, the vice president of Nict said.
Kazumasa said the technology may take 10 to 20 years to get down to a resonable size. Right now, the projector is the size of a two-bedroom apartment.
