Aside from unveiling an industry-first notebook with 14-Inch transparent LCD screen, Samsung Electronics Co. Ltd also wowed attendees to the FPD China 2011 Expo with their huge 55-inch Naked-Eye 3D TV! The audiences were astounded that they could watch a real 3D movie on such a large display without using special stereoscopic glasses like the one built into the BlackBerry PlayBook with Stereoscopic 3D Display. Nope, you don’t have that thingy in this 3D HDTV.
This yet unnamed 3D LCD TV from Samsung has a simple button to switch between 2D and 3D viewing modes. Part of its specs and features include the following: It is outfitted with a special LCD panel whose optical refraction index can be easily changed to display 3D images that’s viewable glasses-free.
Moreover, this changeable Samsung 3DTV LCD display type, when in 3D mode, projects two different images for the right and the left eye, creating a stereoscopic image. The huge 55-inch screen displays 2D and 3D videos in full HD 1920 x 1080 resolution. It also boasts a very high 500cd/m2 brightness rating and 4,000:1 contrast ratio. The Samsung 55” Naked-Eye 3D TV uses a direct-lit Cold Cathode Flourescent Lamp as backlight unit.
When not in 3D mode, this 3D TV can function as a regular 2D web-enabled Samsung Smart TV. But Samsung’s personnel at FPD China also said it will take the company at least 3 years to bring this product to commercial market. It’s a long wait but we believe it’s going to be worth it.
