Sony have announced that their top-of-the-range Blu-Ray home cinema system, the BDV-IZ1000W, will be 3D Ready.

BDV-IZ1000W: clean, elegant looks and access to a world of entertainment
The BDV-IZ1000W is the first all-in-one home cinema system from Sony ready to play high-definition 3D content from Blu-ray Disc, and can also access a world of online video entertainment from the BRAVIA Internet Video platform.

The BDV-IZ1000W delivers the full cinema experience via five ultra slim speakers, using a virtual 7.1 wireless rear speaker system and 1000W of S-Master full digital technology by Sony. Digital Cinema Auto Calibration (DCAC) provides perfect, simple and accurate set-up, while HD-D.C.S. (Digital Cinema Sound) uses sound recordings from Sony Pictures Entertainment studios to recreate an at-the-movies experience in your living room.

The price and date of release for the BDV-IZ1000W are still unknown. However, the Blu-ray Home Cinema’s BDV-E370 and BDV-E870 can all have 3D playback added with a software update.
