Comcast this year is setting up demonstrations of  the 2010 Masters Golf Tournament using 3-D television. The easiest place to see it, in and around Spokane, is at the downtown Huppin's HiFi, Photo and Video store, 421 W. Main.

The when: Thursday and Friday, 1 to 3 p.m. Pacific Time, inside the store.

Huppin's has set up a 55-inch Samsung 3-D TV to showcase the new technology, said store manager Mike Reynolds.

"I'm impressed," he said. He spent time Wednesday watching a par-3 3-D showcase on the Samsung LCD screen. And  now says he gets it.

"I put on the glasses and yeah, I thought it was pretty cool."

Murray Huppin, the company president, said the event should give golf fans and 3-D aficionados a good opportunity to see how far the technology has evolved.

The Samsung 3-D model sells for about $3,000, not including bells and whistles and installation.
