Toshiba unveils world’s first LCD TVs that offer 3D capabilities without any need for dedicated glasses
Toshiba today unveiled the world’s first LCD TVs that offer comprehensive 3D capabilities without any need for dedicated glasses. The new Toshiba Glasses-less 3D REGZA GL1 series offers two models with screen sizes specifically designed for personal use: the 20-inch 20GL1 and the 12-inch 12GL1. The Toshiba 20GL1 integrates a high definition LED backlit LCD panel specially designed for 3D capability without any need for glasses that offers approximately four times the pixels of a standard Full HD panel. It also integrates the Cell REGZA Engine designed for 3D capability without glasses and based on the Cell Broadband Engine to deliver superior multimedia processing. The result of this combination is stunningly sharp, dynamic 3D images.
The new 3D TVs with no need for glasses employ an integral imaging system and a perpendicular lenticular sheet to display smooth, natural images, and Toshiba’s image processing technology to create nine parallax images from the original content and create to 3D images. The result is precise rendering of high quality 3D images whatever the viewing angle within the viewing zone. Both TVs will be available in Japan from the end of December.
