Many companies are developing 3D products and this new Sony F series 3D VAIO is just the beginning in the line of innovative technology.

3D Technology without Glasses; Is it Possible?

3D technology is getting bigger day by day and consumer electronics majors are betting big on 3D technology to help drive sales of TVs and other hardware. As we all know these are very costly and apart from this hardware one of the most significant drawbacks is the 3D glasses.

There are active shutter glasses, the dominant glass technology for 3D televisions. They have serious drawbacks like they are relatively expensive and they use batteries that have to be replaced or recharged. There is one more issue with this device that prevent some active shutter glass from being fully compatible.

The problem with this shutter glasses are that they are not so much competitive for living room 3D market. But they are active in exploring a number of alternatives and options. One of the famous approaches can be to move the glass technology into the television itself. This step will allow consumer to use cheaper passive glasses like the kind found in theaters. Some of the companies like RealD and Samsung, they have teamed up to pursue this approach, are calling it RDZ. One better option can be to eliminate the glasses altogether-this step will surely attract considerable interest among hardware vendors.

How glass-free 3D technology works

Many people know about creating a 3D image. It is to display a slightly different version of the image to each eye, such that viewer’s brain will recombine them and perceive depth. There is a technique called alternate-frame sequencing in the active shutter glass; it blocks vision out of one eye and rapidly alternating so that each eye only sees half of the frames.  You need a TV with higher refreshing rate of at least 120hz to get this to work. You also need to synchronize the image on the screen with the blocking mechanism in the glass.

Most of the Glasses-free televisions use lenticular lenses to achieve the 3D effect. It works as follows, there are multiple images which will be displayed on the screen at the same time in alternating bands. To see the image bands it has a layer of convex lenses arranged in columns. This technology is almost similar to the holographic images that morph as the viewing angle changes.

It is the lenticular lenses which make it possible to have many separate images at many different angles and not just for each eye. Glasses free 3D environment is significantly depends on this technology.  Using this technology, the television will show a pair of images with different perspective at several different viewing angles simultaneously so that everybody on the couch gets the 3D effect.

But there is one problem with this technique i.e. it significantly reduce the resolution of your image. It is due to a lot of horizontal pixels are devoted to showing the two perspective at alternate angles. This is good but poses a dilemma like the television needs to support the 3D effect at many viewing angles in order to make glasses-free 3D practical. But the main problem is the resolution; it degrades as supports for more angles are added.

About 3D TVs

Since many years we have excelled in the development of televisions and movies. Today we enjoy a number of 3D films, as nothing can compare to the 3D experience, and manufacturers have come up with the latest 3D TVs.

How do 3D TVs work?

3D TVs allow you to watch shows, objects, images and videos in 3D format. It has a special port where a stereoscopic sync signal connector can be placed that connects to an Infrared emitter, which sends the signal to your 3D glasses. The simple process synchronises your glasses with the 3D screen. Even if you do have a 3D TV, as well as the glasses and the Infrared emitter, you will not be able to see everything on your TV as 3D. The reason behind this is not simply the TV itself that produces the 3D picture, but it is the footage that needs to be 3D compatible, so that this signal can be transferred.

How do you see the images and videos in 3D format?

Everything around you appears in 3D, but when you look at it on television you do not see the same way, as it flat on TV. 3D technology alters the way we focus on objects. It makes your brain to think that the picture on TV has depth by making each view the same picture at two different locations. Therefore, it becomes tougher for your eyes to look constantly, so you shouldn’t spend extended time watching 3D objects.

Various types of 3D glasses?

There are two types of 3D glasses, like passive and active. Passive glasses are the traditional 3D glasses that use two different color lenses, usually blue and red. These colors filter images that appear on the screen. Without the glasses you will see the images on screen in both the colors. The red color absorbs blue light and blue absorbs red light, so each eye will see the image in the other colour. Each eye is sees one set of images and therefore, it converges to make one 3D image. Active lenses use LCD technology that feature infrared sensor, allowing it to connect wirelessly to TV. Instead of having the image in two different hues, two sets of images are shown at different times at a very fast speed. In this way the eye is tricked to think that there are two images which you see in 3D format.

3D TVs is the latest technology at numerous electronic stores around the world. After taking a closer look at the amazing technology, you with enjoy full entertainment experience for years to come.

UK Shops Start Selling Samsung’s 3D TV

Samsung is scheduled to release its 3D TV today in the UK. Samsung has managed to pitch ahead of its rivals like Sony, Panasonic and LG in releasing the first 3D TV in the UK. Originally Samsung was scheduled to release the TV on April 27, however other competitors have now entered the 3D TV market, due to which Samsung revised the release of the TV.

Samsung has spent over £8 million on advertising campaigns as it expects to get a large revenue share of the market. The 40 inch TV will be available at John Lewis store at Oxford Street from Thursday, followed by Comet and Curry stores in the weekend.

The TV will be available for a starting price of £1,800. However customers will need to buy a Blu-ray player as well, which will cost £349, as not many movies are available to support 3D format.

Just to make things seem less expensive, Samsung will offer you free 3D glasses and a Blu-ray CD of Monsters vs. Aliens. If you are thinking of purchasing the TV, then it is mandatory that you also purchase the 3D glasses for a 3D viewing experience.

3D TV has become a common buzz word these days, especially after the release of 3D movies such as Avatar a Clash of the Titans. However, instead of having a 3D experience in the cinema, electronic manufactures are now resorting to cashing in to the growing market on TV.
