Almost 30% of LCD television panels shipped this year will be 3D-capable, NPD DisplaySearch estimates. Patterned retarder films are finally catching up to the dominant shutter-glass technology for 3DTVs, according to the market research firm. "3D PR film reportedly minimizes eye fatigue, and demand for 3D PR is growing at a much faster pace. It is forecast to account for 48% of total 3DTV panel shipments in 2013, up from 39% in 2011," NPD's Yoonsung Chung said.
