05 Jan 2011 | Rasmus Larsen |

Samsung and RealD have announced that they have developed a novel 3D technology to combine the advantages of the passive 3D systems with cheap 3D glasses and the active 3D system with Full HD detailing. The new technology is called RDZ and will be showcased at CES 2011.<br /><p align=center><i>Read all the latest news from CES 2011, Las Vegas, here on FlatpanelsHD.

The active system has full resolution but requires expensive and heavy 3D glasses. But what if these two technologies were combined?<br /><br />That’s exactly what Samsung and RealD have done with the RDZ technology. By moving the active shutters from the active shutter glasses into the actual TV panel, Samsung and RealD have made it possible to use the polarized glasses without loss of pixel resolution. Other new passive 3DTVs such as the <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1293626048 target=_blank><b>LG's LW6500</b></a> and <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1294068031 target=_blank><b>Vizio's Theater 3DTVs</b></a> are based on patterned retarder and cuts resolution in half.<br /><br />The RDZ 3D technology was licensed from ZScreen by RealD last year and the first prototypes are ready for the CES 2011 floors. From what we understand Samsung has not planned any actual product releases for 2011. We will know more in a few days.
