What's on 3D TV Anyway?

If you are ready to buy a 3D TV, what's on the new hardware anyway? Fortunately, some TV networks have been ready with their 3D shows.

Dicovery Communications is teaming up with IMAX and Sony to launch a 24/7 3D television network. IMAX and Sony will obtain television rights to 3D movies which will air on Discovery's 3D network. Some programming will be offered by the new channel. It will cover such topics as engineering, science, technology, natural history, space, and so on. And there will be plenty of nature shows are good match for the realism of 3D.

The sport channel – ESPN – will launch a 3D TV network in June. It will show at least 85 sporting events this year. The first 2010 FIFA World Cup match between Mexico and South Africa on June 11 will be its inaugural 3D show.

The network that has tested ESPN 3D for more than two years is optimistic that its audiences will cheer the new show.

Are you a subsriber of Direct TV HD? If so, in June 2010, you will get a free software upgrade that allows you to watch three 3D channels. The first channel will show movies, documentaries, and other fare. The second, 3D DIRECTV on Demand, will have sports, music, and other content. A third channel will have free 3D sampler demos.

To develop shows in 3D, DirectTV is working with a number of big-name content providers, such as CBS, Fox Sports, Turner Broadcasting, MTV, and NBC Universal.

3D Glasses only for Samsung TVs

Samsung 3D glasses for its 3D LED, LCD, and plasma TVs cannot be used with other TV brands. The electronic shutter 3D glasses will come in three versions: One powered by an internal rechargeable battery (US$200), another with a replaceable coin-sized battery (US$150), and a smaller set of rechargeable glasses for children (US$180).

The model with battery offers about 400 hours of use between batteries, while the rechargeable units should be charged fully before watching an average-length movie.

The same Samsung 3D glasses will provide an identical 3D viewing experience whether they are used to watch movie on LCD and LED panels or plasma screens. Samsung’s representative explained that plasma screens do not refresh image the same way as LCD and LED panels. Samsung’s LED and LCD Tvs provide a 240Hz refresh rate, the glasses refresh at half that rate (120Hz) because they synchronize to 3D content by alternately closing and opening each side.

Sony Launch 3D TV in June 2010

Sony will begin shipping 3D TVs in Japan and the rest of the world on June 10, 2010. Two models, which are 40- and 46-inch, will come bundled with two pairs of 3D glasses and the price will be 290,000 yen (US$3,215) and 350,000 yen respectively. The both models will be followed by six further sets in July: 52- and 60-inch models that come with 3D glasess and four models that have 3D ciruity inside but require the additional glasses and infrared transmitter.

Estimated price of the glasses will be 12,000 yen per pair and the transmitter will cost 5,000 yen. The transmitter sends out a signal to synchronize electronic shutter in the glasses. According to Sony, the products can typically be found online for less.

Each set will be included by a real-time 2D-to-3D convertor. The convertor will simulate a 3D image from conventional 2D television image.

A firmware upgrade to its PlayStation 3 console that adds 3D support and other 3D-compatible home electronics products will also be available to coincide with the television launch.

Philips Announced 21:9 3D TV

Philips launched 21:9 TV last year. Last week, the company announced 3D version of the 21:9 TV and will be available from late summer 2010. It has a 21:9 aspect ratio allowing you to view movies as they were meant to be seen (2.39:1), rather than with borders at the top and bottom. The 3D versions come in 8000 and 9000 series. Prices are yet to be announced, but Philips won’t be charging a “premium” for the 3D TV.
Philips is using active-shutter technology to deliver 3D. This is the same system most other manufacturers use. The technology relies on a transmitter to sync a pair of glasses, which in turn produce the 3D effect by shutting off one eye at a time.

No 3D glasses will be supplied with the Philips’ TV, customers have to purchase these separately. Philips’ 56-inch 21:9 TV is the natural platform for 3D.
