Brave 3D future: James Cameron predicts 100% technology expansion by 2016

Director of Avatar James Cameron expects 100% 3D technology expansion within five years on both the big and small screens. “Our strategic plan is to make 3D ubiquitous over the next five to 10 years on all platforms,” famous director told The Hollywood Reporter. He said that there will be a complete adoption of 3D technology in cinemas in the nearest future, as well as a rapid take-up of the home market (mainly thanks to 3D TV and special software for 3D conversion and playback, e.g. 3D video player etc.)

The Terminator director aims to encourage film-makers, broadcasters and games manufacturers to embrace the new world of stereoscopic vision. “Broadcasting is the future of 3D. Everything will be produced in 3D and 2D versions will be extracted from that”, said James Cameron during a lecture with fellow Fusion 3D camera developer Vince Pace at the National Association of Broadcasters in Las Vegas on April 11th, 2011. He has also added that once a new technology emerged for viewers not to wear special glasses to see the three-dimensional effect 3D in the home would be adopted with lightning speed.

At the moment James Cameron is working on a script for Avatar 2, which will be shot using his new filming technique that substantially improves the quality of 3D.
