Sony Bowing First 3D Movies on Blu-ray7 Jan, 2010 By: Erik Gruenwedel
Sony Pictures Home Entertainment Jan. 7 said it would release 3D movies on Blu-ray Disc worldwide for the first time, beginning this summer with the animated release, Cloudy With A Chance Of Meatballs.
The launch is aimed to coincide with the summer arrival of Sony Electronics’ 3D-compatible Bravia LCD televisions and 3D-compatible Blu-ray disc players.
“3D entertainment on Blu-ray is poised to revolutionize the home viewing experience in much the same way that high-definition televisions and Blu-ray Disc have over the past several years,” said David Bishop, global president of Sony Picture Home Entertainment. “SPHE is proud to lead the way in providing compelling 3D entertainment to complement the new hardware entering the marketplace.”
