Porn industry embraces immersive 3D technology

CES wasn’t the only show brimming over with 3D announcements this past week, with the Adult Entertainment Expo also bursting out of the box to bring 3D content into people’s living rooms, albeit in a slightly different shade of blue than James Cameron’s Avatar.

A company aptly named Bad Girls in 3D (BGin3D) was even claiming to be the first firm to offer punters a turnkey digital 3D viewing system and a 3D content subscription service for in-home many dimensional soft porn.

Lance B. Johnson of BGin3D reckoned that "for several decades, the adult entertainment industry has driven adoption of every significant new entertainment delivery system — the VHS home-video craze in the 1980s, the satellite television mania in the 1990s and the present day internet."

He went on to say “2010 and beyond will be all about 3D. Society’s enthusiasm for 3D films is largely responsible for the record $10
billion in box office revenues in 2009.” 3D is not expected to shrivel up and fall flat any time soon either, with companies like LG Electronics and Sony working hard to sell hundreds of thousands of 3D TVs in 2010.

"We want to bring this technology into the home and we will do this via a hardware “bundle” that will work with streaming 3D porn.”

BGin3D says it has partnered with “the best active 3D shutter glass supplier for home theater” adding that active technology had “been embraced by the world’s leading display manufactures like Panasonic, Sony and Mitsubishi.”

Johnson believes customers are getting rather a lot for their money (shot) too, with the entire syste, costing what he calls a very “affordable” $4000.

Also, with the Blu-ray Disc Association announcing its Blu-ray 3D standards last month, BGin3D said it would also be shipping equipment compatible with the Blu-ray specifications.

“We plan to release our content on 3D discs when the consumer equipment becomes available in the next few months,” said Johnson.

Promising not only to “surround” viewers with erotic content, BGin3D also boasts its immersive experience will quite literally “suck you in.”

Enticing indeed.
