Microsoft display could make 3D glasses obsolete

Posted in 3D by Conner Flynn on June 15th, 2010

The current generation of 3D TVs all have one large and dorky problem. The glasses. Nobody wants to pay extra for a pair and nobody wants to wear them. We need to get rid of them. Microsoft may just do that.

The company has been working on a new lens that would allow for 3D video with no glasses needed. The display tracks the viewers eyes using an onboard computer. Then it delivers a different image to each eye. It can even handle two viewers at once. The problem right now is that it has a viewing angle of only 20 to 40 degrees.

Toshiba releases OCB-type LCD panel for stereoscopic 3D glasses

Posted in 3D by Conner Flynn on May 20th, 2010

Stereoscopic 3D technology has been around for a long time and it has come a long way. Toshiba has introduced a new OCB (Optically Compensated Bend) LCD panel that works in time-based type 3D glasses.

In those glasses it will facilitate high-speed shutter opening and closing, which minimizes eye fatigue caused by “3D crosstalk”, a phenomena that happens when the right image is sensed by the left eye and vice versa, causing double vision. It also means better image quality and a wide viewing angle.

Samsung 3D Glasses compatible with other TVs when worn upside down

Posted in 3D by Conner Flynn on May 5th, 2010

The incompatibility of glasses from 3DTV manufacturers is another sign that 3DTV is just a passing phase. And I find it to be an annoying one personally. Now there’s word from Samsung that they should work with other TVs if worn upside down. Which really stinks because you already look ridiculous enough.

The trick was revealed during a demonstration of Samsung’s 3DTVs in the UK, with R&D chief Simon Lee using a Panasonic 3DTV to explain the compatibility. The trick will only work on sets that use Active Shutter glasses, and so far it has only been tested with Samsung and Panasonic’s sets.
