Japan introduces 52-inch glasses-free 3D TV

(Posted on May 24th 2011 by Raven Lovecraft)

What is perhaps the most technologically sophisticated 3D TV is now a fait de compli in Japan.
But it’s not quite ready for consumers. The 52-inch glasses-free 3D TV, using a new kind of display tech, is currently being peddled to business customers that can produce their own 3D content. It comes from Dimenco, a small company made up of former Philips employees.
  • The group created a new kind of glasses-free 3D technology that, unlike the displays used in products like Nintendo’s 3DS, can be scaled to large-screen devices without any real loss in visual fidelity.
  • Other issues related to framerates and dark lines in the display are also alleviated. But with all these new inner workings, it can still project any kind of 3D content that’s already on the market today.
  • In fact, it can even take a 2D video and convert it into 3D in real time.
  • There are a lot of advancements in glasses-free 3D tech this year. We saw a start-up company at the mobile CTIA trade show earlier this year and were blown away with its displays that literally do make it appear that objects are jumping out of the screen.
  • With this new technology, the early concern about not being able to use glasses-free 3D in full-size TVs is no longer an issue. However, the other major concern, the price, still very much is. Dimenco’s TV sells for 1.7 million yen, or approximately $20,800. Yikes. It does expect to reduce costs over the next couple years, though, and plans to introduce TVs for the consumer market beginning in 2013.

What differentiates LG’s new 3D TV from current store models?

LG’s Cinema 3D passive 3D glass technology is similar to movie theaters whose glasses also work on the LG TV. Passive glasses don’t require power, are much lighter, cost only several dollars and are easier on the eyes. Those glasses are used in any movie theater running 3D movies. They consist polarized material, which is different for each eye separating two images coming to you from the screen. A stereoscopic image will be produced by your brain similar to those you can see with your naked eyes outside of the movie theater or your 3DTV.

1. More 3D 2. More Versatile

They act as polarizing filters sequentially allowing the left/right frames from the TV screen to pass through. In active 3D systems, much of the work delivering the 3D experience is done by powered glasses, costing $150 each, running on batteries or requiring re-charging.

Select 3DTV you like and purchse it directly from Amazon. It will be delivered to you within days:

 

3. More Comfortable 4. More Affordable

Through the 3D looking glass

Tue Mar 30 2010, By Spencer Dalziel

HERE’S A QUESTION for you. If we say 3D game changer we’re sure that most of you will think of James Cameron’s record breaking Avatar, possibly the first film in a while to be widely acclaimed for its technological merit alone. However, it was the Lumerie brothers, inventors of the cinematograph, who staked the first claim as 3D game changers.

Back in 1895, the Lumerie brothers achieved something James Cameron and his crew were still trying to pull off over a hundred years later. The brothers filmed “L’Arrivée d’un Train”, a 50 second shot of a train coming towards their camera. The brothers were trying to achieve a 3D effect on their cinematograph and urban myth has it that the audience ran out screaming to avoid the oncoming train. The legend probably isn’t true. The cinematograph wasn’t one of the increasingly popular stereoscopic 3D cameras but, as the first to present a realistic 3D scenario on screen they can’t be beaten. The brother even went on to reshoot the train in 3D and show the movie at the French Academy of Science.

The history of 3D is littered with obsolete technologies and false dawns. But the difference between Cameron and the Lumerie brothers is that Avatar was released in a 3D ready world. Avatar might have saturated the cultural mindset for 3D but the tipping point was last year’s Ice Age 3 in 3D. This was the first film where its 3D release financially outperformed its 2D release and analysts are projecting exponential growth rates and reporting that 3D will be a multi-billion pound industry within the next five-years. This 3D ready world is due to a convergence of resources necessary to seed the right conditions for 3D at the cinema and in the home. The 3D market has matured while costs have dropped, 3D technology has evolved and an eco-system of 3D technology providers has developed, delivering 3D capabilities from production facilities and viewing technologies to broadcast infrastructure.

So is a 3D ready world the best thing since sliced bread? Not quite. The big problem for 3D developers is delivering open standards for punters. When James Cameron said he was waiting for technology to catch up with his vision he wasn’t joking. Cameron was literally developing proprietary 3D technology on the fly for Avatar. He commissioned has own Reality Camera System in 2003, which was the first the first 3D HD video camera for the 3D IMAX format, and he used it for shooting Avatar along with his virtual camera system.

The problem with this pioneering method of delivery is that it engenders multiple formats that could bottleneck the delivery of 3D to the viewing public. Are there are so many competing technologies that it has created a Wild West with no standards for creating and viewing 3D?

We spoke to a few key spokespeople working from different angles in the 3D industry to discuss their technology, what they think about the lack of 3D standards, what will be driving the takeup of 3D and where they see 3D going in the next five years.

jdsulogo

JDSU is the world’s largest producer of optical coatings and developed the 3D filter wheel technology for use in an exclusive partnership deal with Dolby. If you popped along to see Avatar or Tim Burton’s Alice in Wonderland at a cinema that used Dolby’s 3D projection format, you would’ve been looking through JDSU’s filter wheel.

The company is currently basking in the glow of the feel good factor generated by the global success of Avatar. The Wall Street Journal reported in January that JDSU received a stock bump “on favourable sentiment surrounding the fibre-optic sector and as the company received a boost from the success of science-fiction movie “Avatar.” Despite the fact that its 3D technology represents only 10 per cent of its overall business, analysts have now pegged JDSU as a potential leader and developer of 3D equipment and optical components. Senior director of global marketing and corporate communications at JDSU, Jim Monroe, went on to tell Dow Jones Newswires, “3D movies have become an emerging trend and the company has factored in the possible increase in business that it will see from more 3D movies being made.”

Markus Bilger is the Custom Optics product line manager for the Advanced Optical Technologies business segment at JDSU. He told us that he believes 3D is the next logical progression for viewing as we move away from flat plane 2D, saying, “3D is the next evolutionary step in viewing content. The transition from 2D to 3D is as important as the transition from silent movies to talkies and from black and white to colour.”

In 2005, no one could’ve guessed that the success of a film like Avatar would expedite the takeup of 3D but JDSU was already sitting on its 3D technology. Bilger has been working on the 3D filter wheel project with Dolby and had to wait half a decade for the project to take off. “We first started working with Dolby over five years in Germany as a research and development project. We knew we had the 3D technology ready to go with Dolby but the market conditions weren’t financially viable. We had to wait for the convergence of cost, availability and quality hardware to serve as a precondition for 3D. With a mature 3D market is place, JDSU was in a position to roll-out,” he said.

jdsufilterwheel

Bilger described the technology behind the filter wheel that creates the 3D effect in Dolby’s 3D glasses, explaining, “The Dolby 3D glasses feature optical coatings made by JDSU that transmit differerent wavelengths of light to each eye. These coatings correspond to the filter wheel that spins at a rapid pace in the projector thereby creating an immersive realistic 3D experience.  The JDSU filter wheel technology works by spinning the filter wheel at a fate rate of speed in the projector thereby creating two different pictures that are projected on to the movie screen. The Dolby glasses that are worn by the viewer in the movie theatre help the viewer see the two at separate times. There’s shown at such a fast rate of speed that the human brain actually combines them in to one picture with very good colour balance and depth perception giving a great 3D experience.”

While Bilger obviously has the JDSU company line down pat, he was refreshingly honest in his descriptions of the 3D industry. He thought that the huge return on investment for 3D cinema and the fact that it can’t be illegally copied yet are not a primary motivator for technology companies because, “It’s an artistic endeavor first and foremost.”

However, he did think that it was still Wild West times for 3D technology. “Its pioneering days for most companies involved in 3D – from TV and production facilities to filming and viewing,” he concluded.

In doesn’t help that JDSU leased its filter wheel technology as an exclusive deal with one company when other 3D glass manufactures might benefit from using it. Would the filter wheel even work with competing formats? Dolby 3D technology doesn’t require a silver screen and uses specific passive filters with much better colour balance than polarized stereoscopic glasses.

jdsu3dglasses

XpanD uses active shutter glasses, which are touted as the upcoming standard for Blu-ray playback for home users and have been backed by most 3D TV display manufactures. Active shutter glasses have polarisation filters and deliver separate images to each eye. They shutter the images alternately for the right and left eye in synch with the refresh rate of whatever display input is being used.

RealD 3D uses a slightly different stereoscopic polarisation technology. These glasses use a circularly polarised light that alternates 144 times per second. Films are recorded in digital and RealD also uses digital projectors.

We haven’t even mentioned Sony’s use of RealD’s new XLS format and Imax 3D, which uses a 3D camera that records left and right-eye images onto two 65mm wide filmstrips to create 3D on a 2D screen. Naturally, you can’t walk in to a Dolby 3D theatre and use ReadD glasses just as you can’t walk in to an Imax 3D cinema and get 3D on XpanD’s glasses. It’s no wonder Cameron had to distribute Avatar in every 3D format known to man and dog or he wouldn’t have made it past that magic $1 billion mark.

Bilger diplomatically said that JDSUs 3D filter wheel is potentially compatible with other formats. He also insisted that the company is agnostic its approach to 3D and didn’t mention any future partnerships with other 3D glasses manufacturers, saying only, “It is possible.” He maintained that “JDSU is happy to work with a partner like Dolby that has technology leadership in the theatre space.”

While JDSU only offers 3D technology in the optical filter wheel, Sony is moving to 3D from every conceivable angle. Nick Sharples, director of corporate communications for Sony Europe told the Inquirer with evangelical zeal that his company is on a mission to create 3D “from lens to living room.”

Is practical and easily viewable three-dimensional photography here at last?

  • Amidst the sea of ever-advancing digital technology and evolving camera models, one product stands out above the rest: a 3D digital point-and-shoot camera, introducing a whole new way of seeing things.
  • A working prototype of Fujifilm’s FinePix 3D digital camera presented at the PMA Imaging Technology 2009 Show may well be finding its way into Australian homes in the near future. Alongside an 8.4-inch 3D Photo Frame and 4×6 prints, this futuristic camera has left those lucky enough to see the camera hands-on wondering “how did they do that?”
  • Using the latest advances in technology, the Finepix 3D synchronises two eye- distance apart lenses with matched zoom, exposure and focus to take two photos simultaneously with pinpoint accuracy but from slightly different angles. In other words, instead of just using one eye, this camera is now looking at things with two eyes, just as we do.
  • The concept of stereoscopic pictures has existed since Victorian times, but being able to view 3D photos without specialised glasses is what allows this new technology to really stand out. Fujifilm introduces the Finepix 3D into fast-paced market looking for something new and exciting.

Fujifilm’s W1 3D camera takes an ambitions leap, hoping to make a few waves


  • The impressive 2.8-inch live-view LCD screen allows users to view the photos in 3D before taking the picture.
  • This real time 3D effect is accomplished by the screen tricking the viewer’s eyes to see the two images as one.
  • Both the accessory 3D digital photo frame and processed prints make use of this technique to produce stunning images.
  • This groundbreaking technology means that viewers no longer need bulky glasses to view 3D images.
  • This new approach to 3D photography beckons a future tide of revolution for the media industry.
  • The introduction of a revolutionary 3D digital photo frame paves the way for future digital 3D screens for TV and cinemas, leaving generous room for expansion.
  • Eventually 3D billboards and posters may be seen jumping out at consumers, snatching the attention of viewers and delivering messages more quickly and memorably.
  • Enormous research is being done on electronic paper and other new printing techniques that will one day see magazines competing to attract readers’ attention through the use of 3D photos.

 

Fujifilm’s digital 3D photo viewer

  • Consumers themselves may one day be able to develop these photos at a local photo shop just as readily as a modern digital photo.
  • Should the Fujifilm Finepix 3D find steady footing in a market constantly on the move, other manufacturers will be attracted to join the fray and find whole new platforms beyond the existing patents on which to contend.
  • It is the incorporation of the digital photo frame that bolsters Fujifilm’s presentation of its latest venture into unknown territory.
  • The concept of being able to quickly and easily share 3D photos without having to develop expensive prints is sure to appeal to those already intrigued by this experimental technology.
  • On a hands-on experience, it becomes apparent that printed 3D photos seem to lose dimensionality and depth when viewed at any angle other than head-on.
  • Due to 3D viewing techniques, printed media seems to have a pixilated, low-resolution appearance. However, the technology, which has done much to impress and deserve attention, is sure to improve and develop further.

Panasonic Full 3D TV:

It has been seen since the introduction of color TV! Such a quantum leap in home entertainment literally adding a whole new dimension to the viewing experience. It is Panasonic Full HD 3D. See the secrets behind powerful 3D like you have never experienced before.

Panasonic Announces Camcorders With 3D Conversion Lens

Jul 30, 2010 10:40 by Hideyoshi Kume, Nikkei Electronics

A prototype of an interchangeable lens for the Lumix G mirrorless cameras

Panasonic Corp announced consumer camcorders capable of shooting 3D movies July 28, 2010.

  • The camcorders, “HDC-TM750” and “HDC-TM650,” can shoot 3D movies when they are equipped with the VW-CLT1, a separately sold conversion lens unit. Though there are no manufacturer’s suggested retail prices, the expected retail prices of the HDC-TM750, HDC-TM650 and VW-CLT1 are ¥160,000 (approx US$1,847), ¥130,000 and ¥38,000, respectively. They will be released late in August 2010.
  • Panasonic employed the “side-by-side” method for shooting 3D movies. The camcorders shoot movies for the right and left eyes by using the two lenses of the VW-CLT1. Then, they combine two frames of images (one for the right eye and the other for the left eye) in the horizontal direction and record them as one image.
  • Therefore, the resolution of a 3D movie that can be recorded and played is less than 1,920 x 1,080 pixels (about 2.07 Mpixels). When a recorded movie is viewed on a 3D TV, images for the right and left eyes are alternately displayed.
  • 3D movies taken by the new camcorders can also be viewed by using other companies’ 3D TVs and recorders that support the side-by-side method. The recording method is compatible with the AVCHD format.

3 MOS sensors used to take 3D video

The new camcorders come with three 1/4.1-inch MOS sensors with a pixel count of 3.05 million (total pixel count: 9.15 Mpixels). Light’s three primary colors are respectively processed by the three sensors.

  • While normal twin-lens camcorders have an image sensor for each lens, the new camcorders can shoot images for the right and left eyes at the same time by using the three MOS sensors. It is because the pixel count of the sensors is so high that the pixels can be divided for the right and left images.
  • Panasonic designed the cameras so that stereoscopic effect becomes optimal when the distance to a subject is 1.2 to 4.0m. It is not possible to adjust parallax. And, when a 3D movie is being shot, the zoom function cannot be used. The company set these limitations so that users can casually take 3D movies without special knowledge.
  • However, to avoid unpleasant effects inherent in 3D movies, the optic axis of the camcorder and that of the conversion lens unit have to be manually adjusted. They can be adjusted by following the instructions displayed on the LCD display and turning a dial located on the upper part of the VW-CLT1.
  • Both the HDC-TM750 and HDC-TM650 can shoot 1080/60p 2D video. They have a 12x zoom lens. And its focal distance is 35 to 420mm (35mm equivalent) when a movie is being shot. The F value is 1.5 to 2.8.
  • The HDC-TM750 and HDC-TM650 are mounted with 96- and 64-Gbyte memories, respectively. They also support SD/SDHC/SDXC memory cards.
  • The HDC-TM750 measures 66 x 69 x 138mm and weighs about 440g (including a battery) while the HDC-TM650 measures 62 x 66 x 126mm and weighs about 388g (including a battery). The size and weight of the VW-CLT1 are 78 x 59 x 97mm and about 195g, respectively.

This time, Panasonic also announced that it is now developing an interchangeable lens that enables its Lumix G mirrorless cameras to shoot 3D images.
