Electronics giants Toshiba have announced that they are also ready to produce a 3D capable TV. Their rivals Samsung revealed earlier this year that they would be releasing three 3D TV sets later this year. Toshiba expressed that it too was developing a similar device, revealing the information as they launched their new range of Freeview HD and LED TVs.

Assistant general manager of Marketing Europe for Toshiba, Olivier Van Wynendaele, made the announcement, saying that the full details of specifications would be revealed at the IFA 2010 this coming September, while they expected the model to ship in the last quarter of the year. “We may not have announced it today but we are looking to release a 3D-Ready TV range this year. We will have more specific details at IFA 2010,” he said.

3DTV – Without Glasses?

3d tv without glasses
At CES, several tech companies, including Samsung and TCL were displaying TVs that didn’t need glasses for the 3D to work. Unfortunately, this technology is in its infancy, so the effect was not the best. To optimize your viewing, you have to stand in exactly the right position to get a good effect.

Glasses-free 3D technology works by using a physical layer that separates what your left and right eye sees. It does this using a long, thin lens that runs over the surface of the TV. This process is identical to those 3D cards you move to generate an image that either moves, or changes.

Producing television or video games that works on 3DTVs would be a difficult undertaking at this stage of the game, because if the image you are looking at isn’t properly aligned with the lenses, it simply won’t work. Which is why there are several companies investing a lot of money into developing this technology.
