At CES 2011 Samsung and RealD exhibited a <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1294222203 target=_blank><b>passive 3D technology called RDZ</b></a> that utilizes cheap polarized 3D glasses but still delivers Full HD pictures. Samsung has now announced that they plan to release 23-inch and 27-inch PC monitors and a 55-inch TV based on the new 3D technology in 2012.<br /><br /><h3>Samsung coming with passive 3D in 55 inches</h3>At CES 2011 Samsung and RealD exhibited an interesting 3D technology called RDZ. With RDZ active shutters are incorporated directly into the LCD panel. By doing that Samsung and RealD ensures that users only need the much cheaper polarized 3D glasses – from cinemas - to reproduce Full HD 3D pictures because different full frame pictures are sent to each eye.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/eal3d-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/real3d-1.jpg" alt="Samsung & RealD RDZ 3D technology" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Samsung & RealD’s 3D technology only requires cheap polarized 3D glasses</i></p><br />At SID 2011 in Los Angeles, Samsung and RealD have now announced a licensing deal to bring this technology to the market. Samsung says that they plan to release new 23 and 27-inch PC monitors with the technology in early 2012. Even more interesting, Samsung plans to release a 55-inch TV with the new passive 3D technology later in 2012.<br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/samsungpassive3d-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/samsungpassive3d-1.jpg" alt="Samsung 23-inch PC monitor with RDZ 3D technology" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>Samsung 23-inch PC monitor with RDZ 3D technology</i></p><br />- <i>"RealD and Samsung's new displays look fantastic and represent the next step in 3D home entertainment,"</i> said James Cameron, award winning motion picture director and a member of RealD's board of directors. <br /><i>"Full resolution viewing is key to experiencing 3D as a filmmaker intended, and when combined with the comfort and practicality of RealD 3D cinema glasses, this display technology will set a new standard for 3D in the home."</i><br /><br />The 3D technology differs from LG’s Cinema 3D technology that is also based on cheap polarized 3D glasses. Samsung says that their 3D technology can reproduce all details in Full HD pictures because they combine active and passive 3D technology, by incorporating active shutters directly into the actual TV.<br /><br />The availability of additional panel sizes and details about pricing are to be announced later.
