3D is really coming of age with several big 3D films hitting the theaters this summer and doing very well at the box office. As more people get used to viewing, 3D content on the big screen there is more of a demand for 3D content in the home.

According to research firm Gigaom 3DTV shipments are set to boom over the coming years with shipments expected to hit 46 million by 2013. Sony and Panasonic are looking to 3D TVs as a way to rejuvenate TV business.

The prediction is that 3D will become a feature with only a slight cost premium in the coming years like 120Hz refresh rates today. For the 3D in the home to become a reality though, broadcasters have to start broadcasting shows in 3D formats. The firm also predicts that lower cost active glasses will be needed as well to bring 3D into the home in a big way.
