Holographic 3DTV by 2018

3DTV NoE is a Network of Excellence funded by the European Commission 6th Framework Information Society Technologies Programme. The consortium of 19 entities, led by Bilkent University, has been working on a 48-month project on 3DTV, concluded on September 2008.

After that, Professor John Watson of the University of Aberdeen (one of the project partners) declared: "It's likely that within three years we will see a TV on the market which will use autostereo systems to create 3D images, so that viewers do not need to wear traditional 3D glasses. However, in ten years time it is highly probable that TV using holographic images, which would appear to float as if in mid air, will be available for consumers to purchase."
