Vizio Ramps Up Passive 3D Set Production

Posted Thu May 12, 2011 at 07:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

The company sees passive tech as the future, citing issues and expense associated with active shutter technology.

After the whole Blu-ray vs HD-DVD thing it seemed like we were done with format wars for a while, but then 3D hit and the whole thing started again. The current debate between active and passive technologies has fans and TV makers taking sides and Vizio has taken theirs.

"Growing sales continue to show that consumers want a high-quality theater-style 3D experience without flicker and the inconveniences of cumbersome, expensive eyewear," says chief sales officer Randy Winick. "Positive press from industry experts and feedback from Hollywood strengthens our confidence as well."

Thanks to those high sales and positive responses, Vizio is going to be ramping up their production of televisions using passive 3D technology significantly.
