A couple of years ago, avoiding 3D was a full-time job. It was everywhere. It was on TV. It was on advertisements. It was in the cinema. But despite the huge marketing push, consumers at large still felt it was a joke, and it's tough to convince consumers to wear those funky 3D glasses while enjoying content. That said, there's still a market for at-home 3D content, and it's a bit too early to call the latest push a complete flop. To that end, those fortunate enough to be in Google's Fiber footprint will soon gain 3net and ESPN3D. Fiber TV uses fiber cables to deliver plenty of channels, as well... Read more...
The world's largest HDTV? Not quite, but it's certainly amongst the biggest, and definitely up there in terms of TVs that are actually available for sale to simpletons like us. Samsung just announced a new 75" monster of a TV -- a Smart TV that actually includes a copy of gesture-controlled Angry Birds. That's right, a Smart TV with Angry Birds. It's probably the biggest edition of Angry Birds ever. The ES9000 LED Smart 3D TV packs tons of other punches as well, with a larger-than-life frame, a .31" curved bezel with no visible seams, and support for video calling apps like Skype. The ES9000 also... Read more...
Say hello to the TV you'll go to bed dreaming about. This is more than just a platter of pixels; this is what technology lust is made of. LG has just announced plans to formally unveil the largest 3D Ultra Definition TV at CES 2012. It's an 84" beast that truly breaks new ground, boasting 8 million pixels, four times the resolution clarity (3840x2160) of existing Full HD TV panels. Combined with LG's Slim and Narrow Bezel Design, the 3D UD TV provides the most convincing 3D viewing experience currently available outside of a movie theater. What's more, 3D Depth Control allows users to customize... Read more...
3D had a huge coming-out party at CES 2011, and it's looking like that trend will continue into 2012. LG, shortly after introducing a majorly huge 55" OLED HDTV, is announcing their newest collection of 3D glasses, including a pair designed by renowned eyewear designer Alain Mikli. They'll be introduced in Q1 2012, with the F310, the clip-on F320 and the Alain Mikli F360 being lighter and more comfortable to wear while upgraded design features such as curved lenses and clean frame structure have transitioned 3D glasses from burdensome requirements to stylish fashion accessories. "Compared to active... Read more...
See that car blasting out at you? The one on the left. No, the one on the right! LG has just expanded their glasses-free 3D lineup with the 25" DX2500, which incorporates glasses-free parallax barrier 3D and head-tracking technologies. With the DX2500, LG becomes the first in the industry to receive TÜV Rheinland certification for a glasses-free 3D monitor. "LG is taking glasses-free 3D monitors mainstream with the DX2500," said Si-hwan Park, Vice President of the Monitor Division at LG's Home Entertainment Company. "With the DX2500, we are making the LG brand synonymous with glasses-free... Read more...
Remember that PlayStation 3D display that was unveiled way back at E3? It hasn't vanished. In fact, it's shipping soon. Very soon. Sony just announced via their own blog that PS3 owners can hunt one down in the U.S. (and a few other, unspecified places) starting November 13th. The 3D Display will cost $499.99, which includes the screen itself, one pair of 3D Glasses, MotorStorm Apocalypse Blu-ray game, and an HDMI cable. All you need to do is hook up your PS3 system and you’re ready to go. It'll support both 2D and 3D content, and with active 3D, you can get Full HD 3D playback; with passive... Read more...
A study funded by Samsung and discussed in the Journal of Vision may have found the reason why so many individuals experience eye strain while watching 3D content. According to the article, problems arise when our eyes are asked to simultaneously focus on the screen while simultaneously adjusting to the distance of the content. "When watching stereo 3D displays, the eyes must focus — that is, accommodate — to the distance of the screen because that's where the light comes from. At the same time, the eyes must converge to the distance of the stereo content, which may be in front of or... Read more...
Tons of new gear is being introducing during Consumer Electronics Week in NYC. It may be as official, but it's basically Fashion Week, but for gadgets. Vizio is one of the companies on hand to introduce something new, including a fresh Theater 3D technology that's wrapped up in new television models. They showcased their full line, including a new suite of passive 3DTVs. There's the E, M and XVT, in screen sizes ranging from 32 to 65 inches, with 3D tech available across 11 models at a wide variety of pricing levels. The new crew also has Vizio Internet Apps, enabling folks to hop online and download... Read more...
Westinghouse probably won't sound like an unfamiliar name for those who have shopped televisions in recent years. They're generally considered a higher-end bargain brand, with reliable sets and reliable quality. And now, they're turning to 3D in order to keep with the times. As more and more TV makers push out 3DTVs in order to hop onboard the bandwagon before it passes us all by, Westinghouse is introducing their first 3DTV this week. The company's 47" W47S2TCD is a passive 3D set, priced at just $1199. That's not bad in the 3D landscape, and the passive panel means that you won't have any batteries... Read more...
Is it a TV? Or a PC? Is it both? The world may never know! Sony's new VAIO L is one of the wildest all-in-one computers, and it honestly looks a lot like a 3DTV. Speaking of 3D, it definitely supports 3D, but would you expect anything else from such a pioneering voice in the 3D universe? The machine has a 24" LED-backlit multi-touch display, with touch access to the Internet, TV (optional), Blu-ray (optional), and yes, a regular Windows PC. There's an HDMI socket, USB port, and Sony tosses in a pair of rechargeable action 3D glasses as well. It'll ship with a Core i7 processor, Windows 7 Professional,... Read more...
Is 3D really the future of television? It's hard to say. The technology is still blooming, and content is still growing. It will still take a few years of trying to see if consumers really are investing, or if this is all just a passing fad. But one thing is for sure: hardware makers are all-in. Nearly every major (and minor) television maker has devoted at least one 3D TV to their line, and 3DFusion is no different. But one of the biggest complaints we hear when it comes to 3D is the "glasses" requirement. Not everyone wants to wear glasses to watch television, but there's an alternative that... Read more...
Nvidia's really into this whole 3D thing, and understandably so considering how vested Team Green is in seeing the technology succeed. To help nudge things along, Nvidia today announced its 3DTV Play software. What exactly is it? Using the 3DTV Play software, users can connect their Nvidia 3D Vision-enabled notebooks and desktops to their swank 3D HDTV for big screen fun. The software works with any compatible Nvidia GeForce GPU-equipped system, even if the notebook's display doesn't support 3D playback. As long as your HDTV does, then you're golden. To kickstart things, Nvidia is bundling its... Read more...
NVIDIA and 3D go together like...well, they just go together well. NVIDIA has been pushing 3D about as hard as any company out there (aside from Sony, that is), and particularly in the PC space, few companies have done more to push the technology into the mainstream. 3D Vision and 3D Vision Pro have been big aspects of the company's initiatives, and this is proof: 1,000 products now support 3D Vision. That's a big deal for a technology that many pundits have said won't stand the test of time. It has been less than two years since 3D Vision launched at CES 2009, and now there are over 1,000 products... Read more...
In the coming months, you'll see the New England Patriots return to dynasty form and whup the competition, Brett Favre throw for a billion yards (and nearly as many interceptions), and Peyton Manning assume the fetal position at the first sound of footsteps (yes folks, this Editor is a die-hard Patriots fan). Sony hopes you'll see all the action on one of its new 3D Bravia TVs, particularly "with a number of college and pro football games slated to be broadcast in 3D this fall," as Sony points out. Sony is manning its front line with three new sets in all, including models measuring 60 inches,... Read more...
