If this tech is already out there, why are all the TV manufacturers releasing 3d tvs with glasses right now? Wouldn't it make more sense to wait a little longer and go completely glasses free?
Toshiba isn't alone in this...
Sharp recently showed a glasses free 3D screen of its own which the upcoming Nintendo 3DS system will apearantly use.
"DISPLAY MAKER SHARP has unveiled a 3D screen bound for Nintendo's upcoming 3DS console.
Sharp ran a demo in Japan showcasing its glassless 3D display technology that is, according to rumour, a mindblower. The display uses a parallax barrier technique that controls the direction of light, sending the image to the right and left eyes of the viewer.
To make the 3D effect work, Sharp has had to up the contrast ratio and brightness on the 3.4-inch touchscreen. The screen now has a brightness of 500cd/m2 and a 1,000:1 contrast ratio.
Sharp claims the display can also be used in 2D environments and will be destined for use on mobile connected devices like smartphones and mobiles. The biggest claim to fame for Sharp though is confirmation that it will be producing the display for Nintendo's upcoming 3D console.
The BBC reported a couple of weeks ago that Nintendo is developing a 3D version of its console for a 2011 release. On Friday, Sharp confirmed that its technology will be used in Nintendo's 3D console.
As Sharp hasn't mass produced the 3D display yet and Nintendo hasn't made any announcements on specifications and features of its console, it's unclear what form the display will take when it's manufactured."
I will wait a long time for this new 3d set to be proven
Their are a lot of warnings about this that make me sceptic.
like the Dragons show " For that reason I'm Out"
This isn't exactly anything new Pedal12.
Similar types of warnings are included with video gaming consoles and in the manuals of most video games.
While watching 3D may cause issues for some people, I think that this is a very, very small group. Most people shouldn't have any problems at all.
Yea I agree but you are trying to fool your body and I don't think it is as proven a technology yet. They have been trying to do this for a long time.
Don't get me wrong I have seen it.. And it looks very good.
I just don't think it is good enough yet. maybe in a few years.
( HDMI 1.4c) supporting 5000 Mhz refresh rates. Then I will jump in.
Problem is the glasses are not set as a universal standard. If I buy a sony TV you have to buy the sony glasses. same thing with Samsung.
This means the manufactures are and will change them like TV models and will they be backwards compatible with the older 3dtv? probably not.
I think Sharp has it right in design No Glasses at all. if you can make it work.
maybe they will license out the technology.
In the mean time at least you can get some nice discounts on current model high end TV's that don't have HDMI 1.4 when they really start pushing the 3DTV.
I agree that ideally 3D should not require glasses at all. However based on the most recently info, it looks like glasses free 3D is still several years away before it can be implemented into larger screen TVs and viewable from multiple positions. In the meantime, we'll have to settle for 3D with glasses.
You are correct in saying that a Panasonic 3D TV requires Panasonic 3D glasses (and same goes for all the other manufacturers). However recently a number of 3rd party accessories makers announced that they will be releasing less expensive 3D glasses that will work with all the current 3D TVs.
It's true that you can probably score pretty good deals right now on non-3D models... as manufacturers will be starting to clear out last year's models.
