After only a week of being available, Panasonic has completely sold out of it’s new 3D Televisions.
Bloomberg.com reports the Panasonic became the first to offer 3D sets in the U.S. with the March 10 release of its 50-inch full high-definition plasma TV that came with a pair of glasses and a 3-D Blu-ray player, retailing at $2,899.99.
Hustler recently unveiled plans to produce “This Ain’t Avatar XXX” parody in 3D, which is set to street in the summer. Rob Smith, Hustler’s Director of Operations, is happy with Panasonic and looking forward to the other television manufacturers’ success in 3D technology as well.
“Hustler is very excited by the success of Panasonic with its first run of 3D televisions,” Smith said. “We also look forward to JVC, Phillips, and others doing well in the market. I feel that the groundwork for 3D in the home is already being laid by the mainstream film industry. With all the great feature films coming out in 3D people are going to want that technology in the home and after spending money on that new 3D TV, why not watch your porn that way? What you gain from 3D, the depth and the heightened realism, has its greatest impact in adult content. 3D is perfect for porn and vice versa.”
There has been some curiosity surrounding Hustler’s plans for more 3D titles. The major porn giant has not made any plans to create more 3D porn, but it’s not due to production difficulty.
“I don’t see it being an impediment,” he said. “At the moment it’s unfamiliar territory and it requires planning, forethought, and testing. Like all new production technology it will quickly become just the norm.
“My only concern with 3D in the home is competing 3D methods and players. The home viewing market, whether DVD, broadcast, or streaming content won’t be able to support a handful of delivery formats. We need a 3D standard for Blu-ray and broadcast to emerge.”
The 3D Media watch continues. Will it take the consumer tech world by storm, or will it fizzle out like beta-max? Stay tuned, I’ll keep you updated.
