The view from CES 2013: 3D is dead as TV gets smart 

BBC North controller of production Mark Harrison presents his findings from the annual tech fest.

CES in Las Vegas always reveals important truths about the evolving relationship between media producers and audiences.

The first this year is that everyone has finally accepted 3D TV is dead.

 Last year, some still insisted you couldn’t operate in the future without a pair of 3D glasses, but now the specs are being reserved for gaming and movies at the cinema.

3D’s place has been taken by 4K, or Ultra HD. We are years away from being able to make and transmit in 4K, yet it matters far more than 3D ever did: it enables manufacturers to focus on making bigger, better, normal TVs.
