Some news from British TV manufacturer Cello (yes televisions are still made in the UK) are about to launch a new range of 3D TVs. The new Cello LCD televisions will be 42 and 47 inch in size and price wise will range from £499 to £699. It seems 3d technology is here to stay no matter how much our team thinks it’s a gimmick but all the main TV companies are pushing people to purchase them just like they did with HD televisions (of which most of the population still don’t receive a HD signal). The new LCD models being made by Cello are being marketed at the cheap 3D television market, using passive 3D with a LG LCD panel and a very welcome set of four 3D glasses with each screen.
Director of Cello Brian Palmer said: “Initially I was unsure about the future of 3D, but the quality of 3D vision now available and the number of new 3D films coming onto the market this year guarantees success for this new technology. Sky now has one 3D channel and existing subscribers who already have Sky’s full package can get it free of charge. I’m sure many other 3D channels will also launch in the near future, making ownership of a 3D TV even more appealing.”
