Philips bails out of 3-D TV

(Posted by David S. Cohen)

Just as Monsters vs Aliens is ushering in the era of the 3-D tentpole — and making the need for 3-D homevideo more urgent than ever — Philips has abandoned its autostereo (3-D without glasses) TV efforts. Marketsaw, the 3-D blog, quotes Display Daily:

In a follow up discussion with Bjorn Teuwsen, Manager Marketing & Communications, he explained that the recession and the impact on the LCD industry had changed the math in their risk-reward calculation.  

They're not the only company in the field, but Philips has concluded that for the forseeable future, the only 3-D in homes will be with glasses.
