Samsung demonstrates better glasses-free 3D TV: CES 2014
CES 2014: Samsung demonstrates better glasses-free 3D TV1:16 /
A concept 4K resolution 3D TV in Samsung's booth created the illusion of a third dimension better than before, and doesn't require you to watch from a particular seating position.
David Katzmaier at CES 2014 in Samsung's sprawling booth and one of many concept TV's on display today is the company's latest attempt at a glasses-free 3D television. You're watching 3D right now behind me on this television and you're not wearing glasses and neither am I. I can see some 3D effect relatively well. Actually move from side to side on this and the 3D effect kind of follows you. I've been told there's 35 different positions. That's a big improvement from previous years where you had to stand at specific places relative to the television to get the 3D effect. There are some downsides. The effect can be a little bit disorienting at first and there's a little bit of blurriness especially when it really pops out at you, but it's a lot better than previous years and of course you don't need to wear glasses. And nobody really cares about 3D anymore and I think the main reason is because of those glasses and the fact there's little content, so maybe when glasses-free 3D becomes a little more viable with products like this 3D might make another comeback. Another couple tidbits this is a UHD 4K resolution television that uses LED-LCD technology. Of course one of the reasons it's able to get to that glasses-free a little bit better is with all those extra pixels. That's a quick look at Samsung's glasses-free 3D concept at CES 2014.
