Toshiba are leading the way with the no-glasses 3D TV concept, and will do so by unveiling the television this coming Monday (October 4 2010). This takes a considerable leap from the array of 3D-TV’s that have been selling for the past year or so that require the viewer to use glasses to experience 3D-TV. This is (hopefully) about to change.
More than a hindrance than a necessity, 3D glasses have been proved by most to be annoying, and something that 3D users want away with as soon as possible. That time has come with the new technology that Toshiba hope to preview this coming Monday.
Whereas 3D glasses use filters to filter out specified ‘flashes’ of images made by the TV screen to give us the 3D effect, Toshiba’s technology is supposedly doing away with the glasses by providing a filter on top of the TV set that will send the 3D image to the viewer.
Full details of the technology are not yet known, but researches reckon that the above details are what Toshiba are using to bring non-glasses 3D TV to the masses.
Certain technologies have already implemented similar ideas, much like this one here that sends 3D images to 64 positions around the room allowing multiple users to enjoy the experience at different positions around the room.
The Toshiba 3D TV reveal is to take place at the Ceatec IT show, which begins on Tuesday in Chiba, near Tokyo. Make sure to check back here again where we will give you an exclusive look at what Toshiba have to offer.
