Whether or not you’re a fan of James Cameron’s work is irrelevant when he speaks on 3D technology. As a huge initiator of the platform in theatres everywhere with Avatar, Cameron is again talking about 3D, but this time the subject is overall technology adoption. He explains that 3D technology was definitely boosted by the movie visibility, but doesn’t believe that theatres are enough to generate the home integrations that many companies are considering. Instead, he points to tablets as the portal that’s necessary to bring 3D into the home. Because many are developing glasses-free 3D technology, expect many to start taking a chance on the platform in general.
Cameron goes on to explain why the glasses-free 3D element is important. Autostereoscopic TVs are the likely solution to the hindrance that so many have cited: the glasses themselves. We already have smaller screens utilizing the technology, but until we see everything done on a larger level, 3D sales may continue to sag a bit.
James Cameron is a huge advocate of 3D technology, and he believes that consumer actually want the necessary hardware but simply don’t want to wear specs to get the effect. Toggling between 2D and 3D visuals will become commonplace in the future, and with so many already releasing 3D laptop initiatives, look for the same push to begin making headway into large screen home units.

Avatar will be re-released in this autumn with eight minutes extra footage.
Avatar was one of the best impressive movies. TechRadar has seen the movie on the big screen, but we think that 160 minutes was undoubtedly the longest time, we have seen the 3D movie in one sitting.
Adding eight extra minutes implies that the movie will be 170 minutes long now. This will test the patience of people, as they have to wear the 3D specs for long hours.
According to Fox, the main reason for releasing Avatar again is 3D explosion. The number of 3D screens has now increased and the enthusiastic movie goers who did not experience the movie in 3D will now get an opportunity.
This will also help to keep the movie new in the minds of people. The 3D version of Avatar will hit the box offices at the end of this year. The movie will be released on 27th August in the UK. You can get more details by visiting www.avatarmovie.com

Well, it looks like not only has 3D re-joined the ranks of cinema, but it could be taking over permanently. When James Cameron sat back and watched the 3D success of his smash hit “Avatar”, he noticed that the technology will not only stick around for a while, but possible take the film industry by storm. Headlining the Cameron-Pace Group, James Cameron is looking to encourage film-makers, game designers, and broadcasters to utilize the 3D technology to push every aspect of the business to new heights.
Cameron expects to see a complete conversion in both the commercial cinema and home theatre markets in the next 3-5 years. As directors and game developers begin to use the budding 3D market, many seek to discredit any notions that the movement is going to last. Numbers from the box-office last year suggested that maybe the craze was starting to die down, but with 3 of the top 5 movies in the world using the stereoscopic 3D element, those hoping to see an end to the medium may find themselves out of luck.
