cnet UK reports that the Odeon cinema chain will complete a rollout of 3D projection conversions to 30 theaters by the end of March. That contrasts will 900 3D equipped theaters here in the US.
The Odeon system will project a 2K image (2,048x1,080 pixels); about twice the resolution of Blue-Ray discs, but about half what is captured by the average digital camera these days (4K or 4,096x2,160 pixels).
But do the Brits really want 3D, at any pixel depth? cnet UK blasts 3D home displays as the great, unwanted TV technology.
"Every system we've tested so far, including many of those at CES, has had the same problems. It's an uncomfortable experience wearing the glasses — and obviously impractical if you wear glasses normally — and the 3D looks anything from really horrible to utterly unbearable." writes Ian Morris. "Do normal people want it? We suspect not."
