Samsung demos 55-inch glasses-free 3D TV prototype

Posted in 3D by Conner Flynn on March 17th, 2011

Samsung is now showing off a 55 inch glasses-free 3D TV at the FPD China trade show. It’s a prototype for now. The 55-inch display can accommodate nine different viewpoints for glasses-free 3D viewing, and can be switched into a 2D mode any time.

To switch modes, it changes the optical refraction index of an LCD panel that sits on top of the main LCD that’s actually used to display images. The prototype uses a direct-lit CCFL backlight, which will likely be replaced with an LED backlight before it hits the market. For now, it’s still about 3 years away.

Posted in Samsung by Conner Flynn on October 11th, 2010

Samsung’s 55-inch DID (Digital Information Display) LCD display produces an HD or a Full HD resolution (depending on the model) and has an ultra-slim bezel (3.8mm on the top and left side of the LCD and 1.9mm on the bottom and right side of the LCD).

Sadly we don’t yet have any pricing or availability details. Apparently, this 55-inch ultra-thin bezel screen will be followed by one with a diagonal measurement of 46 inches and a separation of 7.6mm.

Check out that remote mirroring the TV’s dipslay. It’s a 3-inch touchsreen remote control that’s now shipping with the LED backlit 200Hz Samsung C9000 . The TV measures just 7.98-mm thin and 55-inches diagonally. The remote is built on a 600MHz ARM 11 processor with a custom remote control layer on top of Linux and a 2.4GHz 802.11n radio.

That means you have lots of options to control and view your media, like watching the game even when you have to walk away for a few minutes. You can also preview other channels without interrupting others in the room. It also supports DLNA for streaming your media from compatible devices.

Toshiba intros ZX900 Series 55-inch and 65-inch Cell TVs

Posted in Toshiba by Conner Flynn on January 6th, 2010

Toshiba’s ZX900 Cell TV claims to have 143 times the processing power over existing televisions. That processing allows for Toshiba’s Resolution+ upscaling, a 480Hz frame rate and some home media server capabilities. Net TV applications include Netflix, VUDU, CinemaNow and Pandora, along with 802.11n WiFi and 1TB of HDD for streaming and storage.

It also boasts video phone capability, but it’s we aren’t sure if it has a built-in webcam or if you bring your own USB. The Japanese version has eight tuners, but that has been removed from this US version. These displays use KIRA2 LED-backlit displays with 512 zones of localized dimming, as well as built-in Wireless HD.
