Stream TV To Launch Glasses Free 3D TV During Autumn
The official announcement of the glasses free 3D TV from Stream TV is expected to come during the IFA event at Berlin, following which the set would thereafter be available with all major retailers.
The 3D TV by Stream is based on a software and hardware combination which would convert the images into 3D. The distortion that we get to see in case of multiple viewing angles is also supposed to be removed with the technology the company is using.
Pegatron (Unihan) is the partner that Stream has selected for this venture. This company manufactures components and supplies to brand names like Apple, Lenovo, HP, ASUS and Toshiba.
The CEO of Stream TV Network, Mr. Mathu Rajan states, “True 3D should be like looking out through a window – a natural experience not an optical illusion. Stream TV does not use a parallax-effect to split left and right images to deceive the eye into believing it is seeing 3D.”
The present day 3D TV sets that are based on glasses free technology uses the lenticular lenses system wherein one gets a distortion effect when moving from one point to another. This would not be so in the case of this new technology being used by Stream. The first 3D set from the company is expected in autumn this year. The company has also stated the TV would come at about $2000 and would be a 42 inch set. Chinese market would also get their share of the TV set as there is a partnership with BOE and Konka by Stream.
The Olympics event is what Stream TV people are going to use as the platform to showcase their product and market it extensively. Areas where there is going to be high traffic would have their sets installed for public viewing. Pedestrians and others would be able to view the Olympic events live and that too without glasses in 3D. Other places where people would be able to view the product beaming live images from Olympics include New York, Philadelphia, Taipei, Beijing, Shanghai, Edinburgh, Prague, Berlin and Paris. The BBC Television center and BBC Media Center would also have display from Stream installed this week.
The display panels have Ultra-D SeeCube Conversion box with them which would be able to convert the 2D images and also stereoscopic 3D images that would be broadcasted, into 3D that don’t need glasses to view. Mathu Rajan states, “From the Grand Opening Ceremony to everything sports offers, consumers can watch in spectacular glasses-free 3D”.
