Donald Bell intoduces us to Vizios proof of concept 55 inch glasses-free 3D TV

Hey, this is Donald Bell from cnet.com here at CES 2013 and I'm showing you Vizio's glasses-free 3D TV. This is a 55 inch TV, it's a proof of concept right now, there is no shipped date, there's no pricing, there's no proof that this thing will ever actually see the light of day for consumers. But it is a, the cools version of glasses-free 3D TV I've seen yet. Instead of the-- the technique of using a camera to track your head to determine who have-- who's-- who's gonna get the 3D signals sent to their eyeballs. They've actually made this so that it is static and there's multiple zone setup for different users. So anyone can sit on their couch. You can get multiple key people on the couch, sitting in front of the glasses-free 3D TV, and they're all gonna get that glasses-free experience. And instead of the headaches involved in the head tracking version that we've seen before from Toshiba. If you fall out of range, if you fall on one of the little dead zones for the glasses-free 3D effect, it just turns 2D. it just makes the 3D effect a lot more subtle so that you're still getting a great viewing experience and you're avoiding any of the nausea associated with the computer trying to process your head tracking movements in real time. So looks great. Another benefit of glasses-free 3D TV that I'm-- I'm noticing here for the first time is that, it's a pretty bright 3D experience. You're not getting any of the dimness that's gonna come along with having a pair of passive 3D glasses over your face. You're getting a bright 3D experience and hopefully Vizio will bring this to consumers. If they do, it's gonna be under the XVT Series designation. So there you go, that is Vizio's glasses-free 3D HD TV, here at CES 2013.
