3-D porn hoped to attract buyers of new Panasonic, Sony TVs

Business news website Bloomberg.com has just reported that upcoming sales of 3-D TVs by Panasonic Corp. and Sony Corp. may get a boost from pornographic content set to be released by a leading adult video production company in Japan.

Interest in 3-D video technology grew following the blockbuster success of US director James Cameron's movie Avatar last year. In response, Panasonic Corp. released its first high-definition 3-D TVs in the US last March, and in Japan in April. Sony Corp. quickly followed suit, with 3-D sets to be launched in Japan under its luxury Bravia brand beginning June 10.

In an effort to drive up interest in 3-D technology, Japan-based adult video maker S1 No.1Style is set to launch the country's first DVDs specifically formatted for the 3-D sets, according to Bloomberg.

"Adult videos will likely be an incentive for consumers to buy a 3-D TV. It's worth paying attention to the move because it's lack of content that's hindering expansion," content analyst Yuji Fujimori told Bloomberg.

Sales of adult videos in Japan amounted to 108.6 billion Yen (US$1.2 billion) in 2009, or about 30 percent of the country's overall video market, according to Yokohama-based BRICs Research Institute economist Takashi Kadokura. - GMANews.TV
