New era of 3D television dawning
on Friday,January 30,2009 20:01
Electronics companies are vying to provide a new generation of TV experience - your favorite programs in three dimensions - and one company has recently introduced its latest offering to the U.S. audience.
Panasonic presented the first ever 3D Full High Definition Plasma Home Theater System in January at the Consumer Electronics Show sponsored by the Consumer Electronics Association and held in Las Vegas.
According to gizmag.com, an industry news provider, the system consists of a 103-inch Plasma HDTV and a Blu-ray Disc player that plays back Blu-ray Discs onto which 3D videos are recorded.
It still requires a pair of special active shutter glasses that allow the viewer to experience 3D images, but the latter will contain twice as much information as regular full HD images.
Commenting on why Panasonic has stuck with Plasma TV, rather than LCD, the company''s senior executive Bob Perry explained that Plasma is "the only TV capable of delivering a 3D Full HD experience due in great part to its ability to refresh at a speed which enables multiple image display without loss of resolution."
The four-day event saw the introduction of numerous other ground-breaking technologies, including Sonys flexible OLED display, Yahoo!s TV Widget, and LGs Watch Phone, and prompted Gary Schapiro, president and CEO of CEA, to say, "The success of the 2009 International CES gives us optimism that innovation will restart the worlds economic engine."
