Sensio optimist about 3D TV
Sensio (Montreal, Canada) is planning for a resurgence of home 3-D TV set sales in the next year.
“By the end of 2010, we realized the sales numbers were not there. We then got feedback from consumers. We learned two major things: consumers want more content and they want a better user experience. We are now dealing with both issues.”
