More than 200 3D Blu-ray Discs, 150-plus 3D sporting events, 150-plus 3D console games, and around 200 non-sports 3D video broadcast events are expected in 2012, according to Insight Media.

Consumer electronics companies such as Samsung and Sony are producing their own 3D content. YouTube has more than 10,000 3D videos, and close to a half-dozen dedicated 3D channels are available in the United States.

But all this positive news on the content side doesn't mean the consumer electronics industry will hit a "critical mass" when it comes to 3D in 2012

The success of 3D as consumer television format will be dependent not just on what happens in the U.S. market but also on global adoption fueled by the quantity and quality of content production.
