Samsung Australia is tipped to offer consumers a 3D bundle consisting of a 3D Blu ray player a 1.4 HDMI cable and the Blu Ray 3D movie Monsters Vs Aliens when they launch their new TV offering next month.
The move which is set to be matched by Panasonic is designed to help consumers overcome problems associated with the viewing of 3D content which can only be seen in the home if viewers have a 3D Blu ray player as well as a 1.4 HDMI cable which allows the 3D TV to connect with the 3D Blu ray player.
At this week’s Academy Award Samsung showed off the event in 3D on an array of their new LED TV’s which will be launched in Australia shortly.
