Toshiba has unveiled the UK’s first glasses-free 3D TV – with the 55-inch ZL2 offering the latest television tech and ditching the specs.
The Toshiba ZL2 offers up face tracking, Resolution+, Auto-calibration, 2D to 3D conversion and smart TV features.
Make no mistake about it, this is high-end television with Toshiba billing it as its ‘most advanced TV to date’.
“Built to provide exceptional all round performance, the ZL2 removes all barriers to enjoying 3D entertainment – offering viewers the freedom to experience a next-generation home cinema experience in the most [...]
Toshiba is readying a glasses-free 3D TV, according to a Japanese newspaper.
Yomiuri insists that Toshiba is working on the technology and will produce a television that does not need the much-maligned glasses required by most 3D technology.
The company has refused to comment on the specific report, but has confirmed to PS that work is continuing on glasses-free 3D.
Philips has shown off a glasses-free 3D TV using the lenticular technology, and Nintendo’s 3DS uses the same tech to bring 3D to the portable console.
So, it certainly makes sense that major television manufacturers [...]
Samsung is releasing a new 3D-capable Plasma TV at the sweet price of $989—a full $400 less than its current entry-level 3D set. The 50″ PN50C490 sports an odd 1365 x 768p resolution, but hey—cheap(er) 3D.
The PN50C490, available for pre-order now, also offers 3 HDMI 1.4 inputs, a USB port, and ConnectShare for easy digital camera hookups. Dorky Samsung Active 3D glasses are still a must here, alas.
Awful movie, cheesy music, cheesy acting, bad directing and writing just a big mess. where to start, the dramatic music gave me a head ache like nothing else it just went on and on. Thought it was a musical for a little but no one song so I guess not. But they did dance for 5 min before the can use their powers. So anyone with 50/50 vision and a gun wins, you have 5 min shoot in their general direction bound to get a hit. Now the acting with self narration, for example a guy climbing a ladder, someone shouts out he’s climbing a ladder, like the old time batman show. I was clapping at the [...]
To hell with 3D television — I’d rather have higher resolution. If the rest of the TV-buying public agrees with me, then you’re looking at the super display of the future. This TVLogic LUM-560W rocks the rez known as Quad HD, showing 3,845 x 2,160 pixels of ultra-high-def, far beyond the paltry 1920 x 1080 of today’s HDTVs.
This is one of a few superscreens peeking out from the future, showing off what might be commonplace a decade from now. Meanwhile, filmmakers with their high-resolution digital cinema files will love editing their flicks natively on this gorgeous display, [...]
LG has revealed the reason it is to bring both active and passive 3D technology to homes in the UK – and it’s all down to consumers asking for the technology.
Speaking at the launch of the Freeview HD platform, where LG showed off its LE7900 range with the platform built-in, we quizzed the company on conflicting reports that its passive 3D TV range would be only in pubs.
Launching passive in the home
A spokesperson confirmed that its passive 3D TVs – the LD360 range – will indeed be available to consumers, as well as its active-shutter LX990 3D TV range.
“We had great success [...]
According to the industry, 3D is the next big thing. TV manufacturers are chomping at the bit to sell us new monitors.
Sky is planning a huge 3D blitz this year, including the launch of a dedicated 3D TV channel. Games are an obvious contender for the 3D treatment, thanks to the fact that they have all the data they need to produce an effective world already built in.
Verily, the planet is on the cusp of an incredible 3D revolution and we should all be excited! But I’m not. To hell with 3D. If I could change one thing about the cinema-going experience – other than shooting bloody Pearl [...]
Sony has unveiled the prices of its 3D glasses and emitter package – an add-on which will make the latest batch of Sony Bravias 3D Ready.
Sony’s latest Bravia TVs will be 3D compatible but only one of these will be 3D Ready, and that is the LX900.
The LX900 is Sony’s flagship model of the company’s Monolithic range, one which will have an emitter inside. The television will also come with two Sony active-shutter glasses.
The active shutter glasses can also be bought separately, although this is currently available in Japan.
Each pair of glasses will set you back [...]
Sky is opening its first 3D TV experience at the Westfield shopping centre in West London on Friday – the first of many planned displays to showcase the company’s forthcoming technology.
With Sky’s 3D channel scheduled to launch in April for pubs, and come to homes by the end of 2010, Sky is keen to show off what consumers should expect from 3D TV.
Following a successful first 3D football match – Arsenal v Manchester United last month – Sky will hope that footage including Burberry’s London Fashion Week Show, football, rugby, ballet and tennis will convince people to consider [...]
LG’s flagship 3D TV, which it showed off at CES this year, won’t be coming to the UK for consumers.
The LG LD360 3D LED TV was supposed to be launching into consumers’ living rooms this April, but it has apparently been pulled.
The LD360 was supposed to provide consumers with a 47-inch LCD TV that will be compatible with such services as the Sky 3D TV channel.
Just two months ago, LG was touting the new flagship model as the start of a new wave of TVs, stating:
“One of the biggest trends in TV in the coming years is certainly set to be 3D and LG is making its [...]
