Samsung today announced to mass produce 3D TV panels for both LED and LCD TVs. The HD panels varying in sizes from 40-, 46- and 55-inches boast support of True 240Hz technology and 3D Active Glasses.
Samsung claims the implementation of 240Hz tech will allow to render fast moving 2D images effectively and will make 3D content display in a more natural way. These new panels also have a 20 percent improved response time.
Early this month, Samsung announced the 2010 line of TVs, including the 9000 flagship series touting 3D capability.
Market Research firm, DisplaySearch reckons the 3D display market will grow from a $3.5b market to $22b by 2018.
I’m still unconvinced about these 3D LCD TVs, I’m not sure how much I’d enjoy sitting down to watch my favourite shows wearing 3D glasses! It’s almost certainly the future though, can you imagine sitting down to play a game of Halo on the Xbox only to find yourself surrounded by the environment? It will be a good experience when the technology gets there!
Don’t suppose you’ve any idea how much 3D LCD TVs are likely to cost for the average homeowner?
The cost in the UK for one of these lovely TVs is aroung £1800, just a bit of a pain wearing the glasses. I think that you will get used to it over time.
