Techradar.com reports that while HBO may be making some of the world’s most cutting-edge television, outgoing CTO Bob Zitter has fired a parting shot at television’s cutting edge technology.
Speaking at TV Connect in London, Zitter claimed that 3D TV that used glasses is dead and admitted that he is very sceptical over whether consumers will ever buy 4K televisions.
“We never thought that 3D with glasses was ever going to get off the ground,” Zitter said. “Consumers have shown they do not want to wear glasses in the home. 3D with glasses is dead.”
Zitter’s problem with 4K, or Ultra HD, is that he thinks most houses aren’t big enough for televisions that would showcase the technology properly.
