Samsung looks set to wade into the 3D TV market, if an announcement by 3D technology firm RealD is anything to go by.

Real3D, which provides 3D plastic specs to cinema chains, has said that its 3D technology will be integrated into Samsung's as-yet-unannounced line-up of 3D TVs.

Sony, LG and Panasonic are each chomping at the bit to show off their respective 3D TV achievements - expect big news at the Consumer Electronics Show (CES) later this week - but Samsung has so far said very little on the subject.

Samsung’s 3D sets will support RealD’s “proprietary stereoscopic format”, RealD said, described as an enhanced version of a “side-by-side 3D format” that uses unique filters and other technology to combine left- and right-eye images into a single 3D HD image.

The duo will also work closely on “active eyewear technology”, RealD added. ®
