More 3D Content Heading This Way

If you've already got a 3D PC, you can also stream 3D content via the Internet. At the press conference, NVIDIA showed off how 3D content can be streamed live over the Internet using Microsoft's Silverlight web application framework. Using a 3D PC with the Silverlight video player, we were shown the music video “We Are The World” in 3D. Incidentally, this is the first time anywhere in the world the music video was shown in 3D.

While this allows users to easy enjoy 3D content on demand, Microsoft's Silverlight platform also gives content owners a secure method of distributing and monetizing 3D content over the Internet.

Another interesting announcement at the press conference, is that Sony is also bringing 3D to their “Alpha” series of DSLRs. Presently, Fujifilm's FinePix Real 3D W1 is the world's only 3D-capable camera. With Sony hopping on board the 3D photography bandwagon, photo enthusiasts will have a wider range of options for taking 3D photographs.
