So let me get this straight here, if I spend $3,000 or more on a new 3D TV I can get two movies?!?! WOW, what a deal! I’m being sarcastic of course here, what kind of deal is that?! The movies you’ll get for spending thousands of dollars are Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and Coraline?! How is this a good deal again?
Panasonic, a leader in Full HD 3D technology, announced today exclusive agreements with two of Hollywood’s premiere film studios, Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Universal Studios Home Entertainment, to offer the Blu-ray 3D versions of Fox’s Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs and Universal’s Coraline, two of the industry’s most successful theatrical 3D titles, with its critically-acclaimed and award winning VIERA Full HD 3D TVs.
Consumers who purchase a Panasonic VIERA VT25 Full HD 3D Plasma TV between May 16 and July 10, 2010 will be able to receive the two Blu-ray 3D titles via mail-in coupon. Complete details on the offer are available on the Panasonic web site at www.panasonic.com/promos/3d-blu-ray-movie-offer.asp.
Both the Ice Age: Dawn of the Dinosaurs Blu-ray 3D version and the Coraline Blu-ray 3D version were authored by the Compression and Authoring Center of Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory. To assure the highest possible image and color quality, both Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment and Universal Studios Home Entertainment involved the film-makers in the process of encoding the titles for 3D. Thanks to this close collaboration, both Blu-ray 3D titles deliver dazzling color and image that is true to the original theatrical release.
