Samsung Electronics has commenced the mass production of panels for 3D LED TVs and 3D LCD TVs. The manufacturer claims to be the first company to do so, producing six panel types that use 3D Active Glasses technology.
Samsung’s 3D Active Glasses technology first blocks the left and then right lens, causing a momentary lag when images are shown to each eye to achieve more lifelike 3D images.
“Recently, 3D displays have captured the industry spotlight,” said Wonkie Chang, president of the LCD Business at Samsung Electronics.
“Samsung Electronics aims to lead the global 3D TV panel market in pioneering panel mass production for 3D LED and LCD TVs.”
The company has begun producing LED and LCD compatible panels for 40-inch, 46-inch and 55-inch full-HD 3D TVs using ‘3D Active Glasses’.
The panels use Samsung’s true 240Hz technology, which the company says “delivers full-HD viewing in 2D, and also smooth, natural, full-HD 3D images that can vividly capture rapid movements.”
The technology operates at 240 frames per second, which Samsung says allows its panels to deliver a more lifelike picture with alternating left and right eye images through the use of 3D Active Glasses technology.
“Samsung has reduced the response time of its LCD and LED panels by 20 per cent to less than four milliseconds, eliminating any interference between left and right eye images,” the official Samsung statement said.
“With this improved response time, Samsung is able to achieve natural 3D images and also deliver 2D pictures capturing rapid movement with exceptional clarity.”
