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 3D monitors. In 2012, we'll continue to expand our range of glasses-free 3D monitors featuring different designs and advanced functions."

For optimal viewing of 3D images, existing glasses-free 3D products generally require viewers to stay within a tightly restricted angle and distance. However, the DX2500 has removed this restriction with the parallax barrier 3D and head-tracking technologies, allowing viewers greater freedom of movement, enabling a more comfortable user experience.


Position tracking in the DX2500 works via a camera embedded in the monitor, which detects changes in the user's eye and head position in real-time. Based on this information, the monitor calculates the angle and position of the viewer and adjusts the image to display the optimal 3D effect. And with an advanced 2D to 3D conversion function, DX2500 users can view unlimited 3D content such as movies, photos and games all with a single mouse click.

Now available in Korea, the DX2500 will be launched worldwide in early 2012. Too bad there's no price, and it's hard to say if this thing will ever make it the U.S.

Sounds pretty awesome...the upside to it being available elsewhere first means that (hopefully) some real world testing will let us (and by "us" I mean "me") know just how well it performs in the real world.

Been seeing some interesting things in this specific area like the monitors that have internal 3D processors. While I still think 3D is a poor substitute for holographic projection displays it will do in a pinch :)

Now I wonder how fast someone is going to hack this head tracking for something other than its purpose. I mean hell look at all the awesome things hardware hackers have been able to do with the Kinect.

Yes! I have to agree with you again "gazd1". You're sure are right about their products not being up to scratch. I've had one of their LCD screens a long time ago and it couldn't even compete with Asus for a good picture quality.

I'd be curious to see reviews on how well this performs. I've been waiting for a good glasses-free implementation; I hate wearing glasses over my normal glasses. I never seem to get the right distance.

"Probably as expensive as you would expect, and I doubt it will make it tho the states, but I would love to see in action in front of my desk."

Cool... But I have a feeling that it'll make it into the states eventually, I mean that IPS gaming monitor they had got released, I have some hopes that this'll be released in the states.

I do have to wonder if that camera can be used in Windows as well...

The list price in the korean article has it at 1,290,000KW(todays exchange rate,1,130KW = $1.00US)

It's not listed for sale yet in Korea;possibly on the 7th.

"@Smoghog, thanks. Well, that changes everything, It still pricey but accessible. If it was Sony we be talking about five or ten grand at least."

80% on wiskey

20% on domestic alcoholic drink called Soju

I really like the idea of a 3d monitor, but the main thing holding me back is the fact that there aren’t really many places that offer a good enough selection to ‘try before you buy’. At least for me a 3d monitor is not an investment i’d be willing to make without personally testing it.

Yeah! No price at all. That's for sure. They may scare their future customers away before they can see them at the local store.
