LG Display Zeroing in on 3D UHD TV Market

LG Display Zeroing in on 3D UHD TV Market | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


LG Display Co. proclaimed this year as the new “first year of 3D,” as it heralds a new era of Ultra High Definition (UHD) TV.


The TV giant vows to lead the global 3D market this year by focusing on China.


Ever since the first 3D TV rolled out in 2011, the company has enjoyed its status as a forerunner in 3D-related technology, but it hasn’t been able to capitalize on it owing to the stagnancy of the 3D TV market.


The company is aiming at reigniting 3D boom by using the popularity of UHD TV.

Qualcomm demos Adreno 420 3D graphics, Camera and Video Prowess

Qualcomm demos Adreno 420 3D graphics, Camera and Video Prowess | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


We’ve been hearing “console-quality graphics” used to describe GPUs in mobile chipsets since the Tegra 2 but that was wishful thinking.


Qualcomm is making a similar claim for its latest generation Adreno 420 GPU only this time it created cool demos to back that up.


The GPU found inside the new Snapdragon 805 uses its power for more than just rendering 3D graphics in games – Qualcomm also worked on video playback (3D and UHD) and even assisting with camera image processing.

Can UHD Resurrect 3D?

Can UHD Resurrect 3D? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Like 3D, I haven’t been a UHD booster, either.


Consumers will see no resolution benefit at sizes below 70 inches, and there’s no broadcast or packaged 4K formats as yet.


All consumers are buying is an over-priced flat screen TV, and sometimes not even that given the recent ridiculous rush of curved UHDs.


But UHD, and in particular OLED UHD, solves many of 3D’s annoying problems.

Stereo 3D News Roundup: Regarding the concern over 3D, and birth of UltraHD

Stereo 3D News Roundup: Regarding the concern over 3D, and birth of UltraHD | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


There are several opinions one can take, and here at the S3D Centre we know one thing- 3D isn't going anywhere, and it is currently in limbo.


With 3D capability on TVs now no longer a premium cost, we can be encouraged that 3DTVs and other 3D devices are now accessible at a fair price point to consumers.


We also know that UltraHD televisions are currently extremely expensive for 99% of consumers, and the medium will be years off from seeing realistic uptake.


There is truth that it is simple to create and deliver 4K and beyond content for broadcast, online or cinema.


Similarly, 3D content is also becoming more reasonable to create and deliver.

Stream TV to present 4KTVs with glasses-free 3D at CES

Stream TV to present 4KTVs with glasses-free 3D at CES | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


Stream TV Networks is excited to showcase its consumer-ready 4KTVs featuring breakthrough Ultra-D glasses-free adjustable 3D technology during CES 2014. 


Of the various sizes to be brought to market by the company’s brand partners in 2014, the 50” and 55” models will be on display.


Some of the TVs will be accompanied by the seeCube-4K, an external device that converts a wide range of content – 2D or 3D stereoscopic sources –  to 2160p glasses-free 3D in real time.

Autostereo (Glasses Free) 3DTV In 2014: Sizzle or Fizzle?

Autostereo (Glasses Free) 3DTV In 2014: Sizzle or Fizzle? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


It's quite apparent that Ultra High Definition will continue to be one of the hottest buzzwords for the consumer electronics industry this year and it will likely become a driving force among many of the largest TV manufacturers. 


However I firmly believe that the industry as a whole will come to understand that 3D and UHD are not mutually exclusive. 


Instead, I see 3D technology essential to the near term adoption of UHD and vice versa.


The two technologies are in a sense, mutually beneficial killer apps.

Will glasses-free 3D finally take off in 2014?

Will glasses-free 3D finally take off in 2014? | Ultra High Definition Television (UHDTV) | Scoop.it


A number of companies will be pushing the technology and its features at next month's International CES in the hopes of reigniting interest in 3D, a feature that many consumers feel is simply a fad.


The BBC's head of 3D, Kim Shillinglaw, said she believed 3D has so far failed to take off because it is not a straightforward process.


"Watching 3D is quite a hassly experience in the home. You have got to find your glasses before switching on the TV.


I think when people watch TV they concentrate in a different way. When people go to the cinema they go and are used to doing one thing -- I think that's one of the reasons that take-up of 3D TV has been disappointing."



Perhaps not needing to reach for the glasses for a truly immersive experience might change all of that.

Well, there’s no denying that a TV with 4 times as many pixels is going to produce a mind-blowing picture compared to current TVs.

 

But it’s actually 3D that going to see the biggest benefit from the extra pixels.

 

When viewing 3D content, the new resolution will to be able produce two 1080p pictures for each eye, which will make a significant difference to the illusion of 3D, eyestrain and the overall quality of the picture.
