We have seen 3D TVs couple years ago and they are still available, but the content for those 3D TVs is pretty low. If you have a 3D TV can you tell me how often you watch it? And I am talking about you and not your kids, I know kids love 3D cartoons but what about the rest of us. I myself as many others have purchased a 3D TV few years ago and the only thing I watch on it since I bought it was Avatar In 3D.
3D is slowly fading away as there is no demand for it. But what about 4K UHD 2160p resolution TVs. Are they here to stay or will they slowly fading away just like 3D TVs are? Well believe it that the 4K TV is the future or at least till they come out with something better.
Why 4K TVs are here to stay? Even thou there is not allot of content in 4K resolution yet on the market, that does not mean that it is not created. Almost all new Movies are recorded in 4K or higher resolution, some even in 8k. This is why the new movie theaters are projecting 4K on to the big screen. Sharp even announced 8K full dome TV during CES in 2013
Just because most movies are recorder in 4K resolution should be good indicator that we will all soon be using 4K TVs in are living rooms or are theater rooms. But there is more, there are lots of cameras and devices that are also capable of recording in 4K format which will expedite 4K content building.
