So while reviewing the Evo 3D last week, I also happen to come across a Miami company that is on a mission to be a leader in 3D online videos: Net Element.
Net Element owns a number of web properties, including OpenFilm.com, a place for Spielbergs-in-training to upload their films. Some filmmakers have shown interest in uploading red-and-blue 3D movies, and that spurred the company to experiement in 3D video for its other websites, like Motorsport.com.
There are no 3D videos yet on Motorsport.com, but expect to see a few added this fall. They've already begun filming in 3D by putting the special cameras on cars during races.
Of course their success depends on more computers that can play 3D video. Consumer awareness of 3D continues to rise, thanks to the marketing push from 3D television-makers since last holiday season. But 3D TVs — which retail for three times as much as 2D sets — can't create the market alone. Analysts say what's more influential are the cheaper, glasses-free devices like the Nintendo 3DS and Sprint's Evo 3D smartphone.
