Panasonic develops 50-inch full HD 3D PDP and high-precision active shutter glasses


Panasonic Corp said Monday it has developed a 50-inch full HD 3D compatible plasma display panel (PDP) and high-precision active shutter glasses that enable the viewing of theater-quality, true-to-life 3D images in the living rooms.

Aiming to bring full HD 3D TVs to the market in 2010, the company steps up its efforts in developing the related technology. Prototype full HD 3D TV and glasses will be displayed at CEATEC JAPAN 2009 to be held from Oct 6-10 at Makuhari Messe in Chiba City, east of Tokyo.

The new PDP and glasses evolved from Panasonic’s world-first full HD 3D Plasma Home Theater System that was developed in 2008 and comprised of a 103-inch PDP and a Blu-ray Disc player. The prototype PDP has a 50-inch screen, which is expected to become the most popular size for home theaters.

i have seen some of these prototypes in trade shows. Doesn't look so impressive... Since only one eye is open at any one time, the screen looks half as bright. these work great with CAD and other industrial applications, but not for your everyday variety show. i hope they have fixed many of these problems by now.

It's cool if it works, but even if it does, I don't think people are going to be too thrilled about having to wear goggles.

3D is exhausting for the eye, so watching 3D for more than ten minutes makes the viewer sleepy. OK for digital signage, but lousy for TV or cinema length movies.
