Re: 3D TV a huge waste of time

Well of course he had a bad experience if he was using ESPN 3D as a good example of the technology.

ESPN 3D is fucking dogshit.

It's only 720p, which is absolutely ridiculous for 3D. This means that two video frames must be packed into a 1280x720 space. ESPN 3D uses horizontal side-by-side technology, so it gives the video an effective resolution of 1280x360, or 460,800 pixels. That's barely better than SD, which is 345,600 pixels.

Discovery Communications is actually competent and uses 1080i for 3net. As a result the picture is much higher resolution than ESPN 3D.
