Recent film releases such as Avatar have revolutionized cinema by combining 3D technology and content production and real actors, leading to the creation of a new genre at the outset of the 2010s. The success of 3D cinema has led several major consumer electronics manufacturers to launch 3D-capable televisions and broadcasters to offer 3D content. Today's 3DTV technology is based on stereo vision, which presents left- and right-eye images through temporal or spatial multiplexing to viewers wearing a pair of glasses. The next step in 3DTV development will likely be a multiview autostereoscopic imaging system, which will record and present many pairs of video signals on a display and will not require viewers to wear glasses.
