Japanese 3DS to get 3D TV

Posted in Nintendo 3DS by Conner Flynn on June 21st, 2011

3DS owners outside of Japan will be very jealous, but we should be used to it by now. Thanks to Fuji TV, Nintendo’s Itsu no Ma ni Terebi (otherwise known as “SpotPass TV”) will bring several short format 3D TV programs to the handheld.

Just like its Wii predecessor, the video service is Japan-only at least for now. Hopefully Nintenso will keep it’s promise about Netflix so the rest of us can watch programs.

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.

I am just about ready to jump on the 3D TV bandwagon. I am waiting for screens that don’t need glasses before I bite and those are probably coming soon. If you can’t wait any longer, a new Samsung 3D TV has landed on Amazon.

The TV is the Samsung 46-inch LN46C750 and it has full 1080p resolution. The TV supports 3D and has a pair of 10W speakers. Other features include a wide color enhancer, and support for Skype on Samsung TV.

Samsung DTVs get InstaPort S tech

I am not a very patient person. I want my computer to switch web pages right now, and I don’t want to wait when I click a link for a page to load. I want things to be like flipping TV channels. I really get frustrated waiting on my TV to change inputs when I am watching movies.

Silicon Image has announced that its cool InstaPort S technology will be used in the new line of Samsung LED and LCD TVs. The technology promises to change HDMI inputs in one second. That means you will not have to wait while the input looks for a source and all that.

Amazon offers pre-order on StreamTV 3D TV needing no glasses

Posted in Amazon by Shane McGlaun on April 7th, 2010

I really want to get a 3D TV in my living room, but before that happens I need to see some 3D content come to DirectTV. I am also waiting for the tech to get cheaper and hopefully lose the need for glasses to watch.

Amazon.com has a 3D TV up for pre-order from a company that I have never heard about and can’t find any information about online called StreamTV. The TV is interesting, but even Amazon is very light on details for the set.

Philips 52-inch 3D display is pure ecstasy for couch potatoes everywhere

Posted in Philips by Shane McGlaun on June 5th, 2008

Philips 52-inch 3D TVAt CES in January I wandered over to the NVIDIA meeting area and spent some time in the little gaming area NVIDIA had set up. Hands down the coolest thing on display was a big screen 3D TV that was being used to play some Need For Speed Pro Street. Trust me 3D rocks so hard for gaming you will want it.

The catch with the system NVIDIA was using is that you had to wear these geeky glasses straight out of the 1980’s to get the 3D effect. Philips announced a new 52-inch 3D monitor today that is auto-stereoscopic meaning you don’t have to wear glasses to view in 3D. Sign me up!
