Is 3D only a feature on OLED models at this point? No 4K, LCD 3D in the mix?

Does any Sony TV's have 3D for 2017? Doesn't look like any 2017 OLED's have it.

Any future 3-D option, be it glasses free TV or VR headsets should be compatible with our existing catalog. Our 3-D discs contain an the necessary left and right and right data for any 3-D enabled device.

Personally, I'm hoping Sony eventually works 3-D blu-ray viewing into the Playstation VR. Not to mention keeps including it as a feature on their TVs. Considering they still seem into supporting the format, being the only studio releasing UHD+3D+BD combo packs, things are still looking up on that front.

I guess we'll know soon on the TV production front. Here's hoping SONY stays in the game...and that we enthusiasts can limp along on our current generation sets until the next tech arrives. Pity that Cameron didn't get moving on those Avatar sequels sooner; might've renewed interest in the format with more groundbreaking 3D visuals.

What a deplorable point of view.

3D was only fun when I had a projector, that's where it shines. Since I reverted back to a display, I haven't even touched a 3D movie. Honestly, the gimmick is done now - put me down as preferring 4K HDR to 3D.

You can see why the option of both for those that want both sucks though I assume.

Of course, but the writing's been on the wall - Vizio, Samsung, and now LG? I don't weep for the 30-odd 3Ds I have leftover. Panasonic isn't even in the US now. So what's left? Sharp? Sony, who uses other people's panels?

I sympathize to be sure, but I can't help but feel that it's a "format" that just lost a "war" - especially when (quoting from another forum here) - 4K discs have been a sales hit.

Can any of these 4k OLEDs support standard 3D blu-ray players and how will it work to that effect?

Dang this news kinda sucks. Just got rid of most of my collection and kept all my 3D ones because I enjoy watching them. I also own a 3D LG TV and bluray player from 6 years ago that's still going strong. Been eyeing the 3D OLEDs this year (the price tag hurts), looks like I'll never experience it.

Doctor, current 3D 4K OLEDs play 3-D Blu-rays on 3D Blu-ray players and 4K players.
Non 3D OLEDs will play them in 2D.

UHD still has to prove itself as a format, but if it does, there will still be room for new UHDTV's that can easily incorporate 3D tech down the road.
Most 3D fans with a reliable display will be watching 3D on their displays (projection, 3DTV) for the next 10 years at least, so anyone who says the 3D market is lost, needs to look at why 3D sales continue 7 years after Avatar 3D in 2009.
Most 3D fans don't need a new display every year.
New 3D fans can still find available 3D sets and projectors.
Keep buying blu ray 3Ds if you're a fan.

I could be wrong, but I don't believe they do. They get their panels from LG. Unless LG incorporates an FPR into the panel, the 3-D won't be there.

How flat are LG’s new TV’s? They’re so flat they removed the 3D.

You can give it as many names as you like - 4K, UHD, HDR, it’s still 2D. I don’t get why LG would drop a feature that is in a visual class of it’s own. Where it's actually taking advantage of how our stereoscopic vision works. Yes, 3D viewing doesn't happen as often as 2D, but the option is there and it's enjoyable every time.

It's like how stereo music creates a feeling of depth over mono. We have two ears, why not use them both. Stereo and mono audio is still an option. Why not keep stereoscopic and flat visuals as options as well?

I know it's a silly thing to say, but considering we have two eyes, I don't see the benefit of trying to take away the advantage a depth of field has.

To have them both looking at the same thing doesn't make UHD any better then 3D for realism. It just isn't possible.

Just read this on CNET. So glad I picked up my C6 in November when it was on sale. I was worried LG might do this after first Vizio and then Samsung dropped 3D over the last few years. Too bad, as the 2016 LG OLEDs are easily the best 3D TVs ever made.

Huge loss for 3D fans.

Certainly, there's no immediate crisis. And it's entirely likely there'll be future 3-D capable displays when companies smell a new interest in the technology. Home 3-D exists and is relatively inexpensive, so it can be reincorporated at any time. The quest for effective glasses-free 3DTVs also continues, as far as we know, so in a few years time we may see a brand new range of 3DTVs when autostereoscopy is finally perfected.

Despite that, I'm still a little annoyed by it. Many of us have sizable collections of 3-D Blu-Ray. Nearly 40% of my own modest collection is 3-D content. After the industry spent so long and so much money encouraging people to adopt the format, it's a little annoying when they stop supporting it when we've finally reached a point where including passive 3-D has almost no actual impact on manufacturing cost. I simply don't understand what LG would be losing by continuing to include it on their top-tier models until autostereoscopy or VR technology has matured.

I'm also annoyed because I wasn't really in a hurry to buy a new TV, although I've been planning to for some time now. While I still have 2 functioning 3DTVs (both LG), I want one of the new E6 4K OLED sets as an ultimate 3-D display that will (hopefully) last me for some time. I now have to make that purchase sooner than I'd anticipated.
