  • Disney 3D Blu-ray on the way

    Disney, which says it has produced more 3D content than any other major, will begin rolling out 3D Blu-ray titles this year beginning with "Disney's A Christmas Carol" and followed by "Alice in Wonderland" and "Toy Story 3."

    Television sets with 3D capabilities are all the rage at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas this week, so it's no surprise that studios have waited until now to officially commit to the technology by announcing specific titles.
    As for Disney, it has been producing 3D content since at least 1953, when the first of its series of shorts called "Adventures in Music" was made, as was the animated short starring Chip and Dale called "Working for Peanuts."

    Scenes from the latter, in fact, were made available on 3D Blu-ray on Thursday, though only as part of a promotional item called "3D Showcase Disc," which Disney is giving to manufacturers to bundle with their 3D hardware.

    So, technically speaking, Disney's "3D Showcase Disc" is the public's first chance to experience true 3D Blu-ray since the technical specifications were finalized in December. You do, however, have to buy the hardware for viewing the disc just to get your hands on it. And don't forget to purchase the special glasses, which aren't necessarily included with the hardware or the disc.

        Yes, they are speaking of Tim Burton's version of the movie that is being released in 3D in theaters.

        I heard the same thing about High Definition video and digital 3D cinema technology.
