There has been a lot of recent discussion in the media about the potential dangers of 3DTVs and 3D Movies – and yet stereoscopes have been with us for over 150 years, 3D movies for over 50 years, and 3D viewing is also widely used in industry. 3DTV is, however, transitioning from a special event to a 24/7 experience and becoming available to a wider demographic. Where is the truth in the concerns being expressed, where are the falsehoods, and where are the gaps in our knowledge? The panelists gave their views on this important topic.
