Samsung Dual View and Dual Play
Two different pictures & sound streams on 1 TV

Last year LG and Philips demonstrated how to show two different pictures on the same TV using 3D glasses. At CES Samsung took it a step further and demonstrated a solution to provide different pictures and sound streams.

The concept of being able to watch different TV shows on the same TV is alluring but it also raises a number of issues. Samsung demonstrated how the concept of watching and listening to different TV shows on a single TV set could work at this year’s CES show.

The technology enables multi-player games to take advantage of a single TV set, without relying on split-screen solutions. It also enables families to watch different TV shows on the same living room TV.

The solution is actually quite simple. Instead of using head phones, Samsung has incorporated speakers into the 3D glasses. And the 3D glasses are necessary anyways because they divide the pictures on the TV into two. You can also switch between the different TV shows on the TV by clicking a small button on your 3D glasses. See it in action below (video credit:

Samsung calls it Dual View & Dual Sound. The concept was demonstrated on Samsung’s Super OLED TV, which also ensures that the two images are separated perfectly without crosstalk. Right now it is only a technology concept and Samsung has no concrete plans to use it in their 2012 TVs – but maybe in the future. We hope so.
