Manufacturers take 3-D TVs to next level

LAS VEGAS (NBC) - Major electronics manufacturers are fighting to create a market for 3-D TV sets.

One of the obstacles manufacturers, such as LG and Samsung, face in getting consumers to purchase their TVs is a lack of content.  

In order to remedy this problem, Sony is introducing a 3-D camcorder to the market. The company is also part of the charge to link the TVs to the Internet.

These moves would broaden content beyond existing 3-D sporting events and movies.

The 3-D televisions were one of hottest product categories at this year's Consumer Electronics Show, which wrapped up in Las Vegas on Sunday.

Like any new technology, as the competition to build 3-D hardware continues, prices will drop and screens will grow.
