Research says US consumers embrace 3D

Americans will embrace 3D, according to consumer insight research from Austin based Zpryme. Following this years CES, the consultants followed up the consumer buzz with a timely 3D snapshot.

3D TV presents a giant leap forward both in terms of technology and the user experience. Consumers are well aware of this and are excited by the prospect of enhanced cinematic immersion and gaming interaction. The naysayers are missing the point here. Adoption will be driven by big ticket content and media events think broadcast sports, movie night, gaming, and so on. If the success of Avatar confirms anything, its that consumers are happy to overlook the perceived shortcomings of 3D done right, said Alberto Alex Perilla-Gayle, Zpryme director of consumer insights.

Following the release and subsequent success of Avatar and Januarys CES show, 3D has attracted a lot of attention from both consumers and business. The snapshot from Zpryme reflects opinions from all online consumer discussion surrounding 3D HDTV in the weeks prior-to and after CES (December 30, 2009 January 17, 2010).

The research analysed 744 consumer messages, posted across 47 sources, reaching over 14 million consumers; this represented a rich demographic spectrum, comprised of 61% males, 68% 18-54, and 39% earning $75,000+, according to Zpryme.

The people are amazed by 3DTVs enhanced viewing experience and the technology itself. Most consumers say 3DTV is long overdue, revolutionary and cool. However, some worry that 3DTVs media and content is only a gimmick or at best immature.

Many are concerned about the realities of using 3D glasses day-to-day. Consumers worry that 3D glasses will be uncomfortable to wear; some say that prolonged viewing will be headache-inducing.

Many anticipate that buying, using, and keeping track of glasses will be a pain, and bothersome. Some simply deride 3D glasses as silly or geeky. Many also complain about being pushed to upgrade so soon after buying-in to HD. They worry about having to replace equipment and content they say it is ridiculous or stupid.
