Panasonic parades 50in 3D plasma TV

Into homes by 2010

Panasonic is on the road towards development of its “full HD 3D system”, following creation of a 50in 3D-capable plasma display.

The screen is still just a prototype, but Panasonic claimed that 50in 3D displays will “become the most popular size for home theatres”.

At IFA in Berlin earlier this month, Panasonic unveiled plans to develop several models of 3D TV. Each will “perfectly complement” the firm’s upcoming range of 3D-capable Blu-ray Disc players to create a “full HD 3D system”, the firm said.

Panasonic’s 50in 3D PDP requires users to wear active-shutter glasses - which create the illusion of 3D by alternately darkening the lenses of over each eye in synchronisation with the display’s refresh rate.

The advantage of active-shutter tech - according to Panasonic - is that each eye receives a 1920 x 1080p image. Other HD 3D display technologies usually just divide the resolution between each eye, meaning neither eye sees a full HD image. “Crosstalk reduction technology” also enables the set to minimise on-screen ghosting, Panasonic claimed.

Europe, North America and Japan could take first deliveries of the 50in 3D PDP next year, Panasonic hinted. ®
