Sony and LG will stop integrating 3D capabilities into TV sets they manufacture this year. “3D capability was never really universally embraced in the industry for home use, and it’s just not a key buying factor when selecting a new TV,” explained Tim Alessi, LG’s director of new product development, to CNET. “Purchase process research showed it’s not a top buying consideration, and anecdotal information indicated that actual usage was not high. We decided to drop 3D support for 2017 in order to focus our efforts on new capabilities such as HDR, which has much more universal appeal.”
