AUO to mass produce 65″ 3D panels in 2H 2010

FPD China starts tomorrow, and AUO will exhibit new 3D display technologies. The first one is a 65″ full-HD 3D panel, that they will start mass producing in 2H 2010. This one uses polarized 3D glasses that only weigh 10 grams, costing around $3 per pair. If you already have glasses, you can easily clip polarized lenses onto the regular frame.

AUO will also exhibit glasses-free barrier and lenticular lens displays.

AUO will also show new e-paper displays and OLED prototypes.

Sony’s active-shutter 3D glasses are now shipping for $149

Sony’s active-shutter 3D glasses are now available for $149. The glasses offer about 100 hours between charges, and auto-standby to improve efficiency. You can use these with your your HX800 or HX909 TVs (or the LX900, which includes 2 pairs already). For the HX800/909, you’d also need the 3D sync transmitter (which costs $48). You also need a 3D-player (such as Sony’s 3D Blu-ray players).

Buy the Sony 3D glasses now for $149.

Samsung releases new 3D glasses

Samsung has released 3 new 3D glasses today. All of them are battery operated (active-shutter) and require a Samsung 3D-ready TV with an emitter (such as the LED-LCD C7000 or PNC8000 plasma) and a 3D Blu-ray player (such as Samsung’s BD-C6900 that’s shipping for $399.).

  • SSG-2100AB: the basic model, costs $149
  • SSG-2200AR: – these are more expensive at $199
  • SSG-2200KR: these ones are for kids, come in pink and blue and cost $179

Samsung SSG-2100AB

All of those glasses are now available for pre-order over at Amazon.com, we do not know when they’ll ship yet. Interestingly, Samsung’s 3D-starter-kit includes 2 pairs of the basic model 2100AB, and costs $350 – so it’s cheaper to just buy two pairs at $299 (although the starter-kit includes a 3D Blu-ray movie – monsters vs aliens).

New 3D poster technology coming soon

The Fraunhofer institute, University of Kiel and RealEyes is showing a new technology that enables 3D posters for large (up to 5 meters) outdoors advertisements. And these do not require any glasses.

The researchers say that the display are similar to the lenticular images we’ve seen on postcards. But instead of the grooved sheet with the image attached, the new posters use a lens array – 250,000 lenses, each 2 millimeters in diameter. The 3D image can be viewed from the other side of the street, and the image appearance changes with each step and adjusts to the visual angle.

They have already built a DIN-A0 (1 sq meter) poster prototype, and they say that commercialization of larger posters (3 to 5 sq meters) is possible during 2011.

3D POSTER

Today it  has been achieved and  it is being  commercialized  in Spain, such images with lenses of 1.25 mm or 20-inch lenses.Actually, this technology is not new, if it is true that recent times are getting an excellent quality,  almost, these days, it has gotten to produce  it  industrially  with a really very low cost.The optimal size at the moment is a traditional MUPI (1.2m. X 1.8m high).  It’s true you might get a panel of five meters cracked, but the problem lies in the placement of such portions in the same plane,   they must be perfectly flat  without any kind of inclination,  so  this would give us a picture also cracked.

HDI’s 100″ 3D Laser TV will cost $10,000-$15,000, first units available in May

HDI says that they will begin production of their 100″ 3D Laser TVs (1920×1080) in May. Mass-production will take a bit of time – hopefully by Christmas 2010. They also say that the TVs will cost between $10,000 to $15,000.

The TVs are 10″ thick, and weighs about 75% less than normal 100″ LCDs or Plasmas. They also draw 80% less power than a 100″ plasma. According to HDI, they do not contain any harmful chemicals, either.

Samsung shows a 55″ glasses-free 3D LCD, will take 3 years to commercialize

Samsung shows a 55″ glasses-free 3D LCD, but says that this will take about 3 years to commercialize. The display offers full-HD images, 500cd/m2 brightness and a 4000:1 contrast ratio. It offers 9 viewpoints with an optimal viewing distance of 2.5 to 6m. Interestingly, Samsung used CFL backlighting, although they say that it can easily be replaced with a LED.

Samsung says that the display can easily be switched to show 2D or 3D images, and it actually uses 2 LCD panels to do so.

Turn your Canon digital camera into a 3D camera

Update: Loreo has released the same kit for Nikon, Sony, Olympus, Panasonic and Konica-Minolta SLRs.

Loreo has released a new Stereo Lens-In-A-Cap for Canon cameras ( APS-C format subframe digital SLR sensors, 22-24mm). It costs $165. Using these kinds of lens you get one photo that has two images in it, side by side (see here for some samples from Loreo). You can view the 3D images in Loreo’s own 3D viewer, or change the photo digitally to other 3D formats.

Buy it now for $165, from Amazon.com

The robot-looking 3D lens is available for:

Nikon, Minolta, Fuji, Konica, Pentax, Olympus, Panasonic,

AUO to show the world’s first deadzone-free glasses-free 3D display

AU Optronics has developed a auto-stereoscopic (glasses-free) 3D panels (15.6″ Full-HD and 10.1″ WXGA) that are deadzone-free. AUO is using a lenticular-lens design combined with SuperD’s eye-tracking system. AUO is targeting notebooks and tablets for the displays. Eye-tracking means that only one user will be able to view the 3D image, though.

AUO also announced that it will invest $7.7 million in SuperD (and will get 10% of its shares).
