<div class="billede"><img src="pictures/mini-dolby3d.jpg" alt="Tablets are popular TV devices"></div>First reports praise Dolby's glasses-free 3D

26 Apr 2012 | Rasmus Larsen |

Dolby had brought a prototype display, based on their previously-announced <a href=http://www.flatpanelshd.com/news.php?subaction=showfull&id=1334579527><b>glasses-free 3D technology</b></a>, to the NAB 2012 convention. The first reports praise Dolby’s efforts and says that 3D pictures look great and that the viewing angles are “particularly impressive”.<br /><br /><h3>Dolby’s 3D technology receives praise</h3>The Verge got some hands-on time with Dolby’s new glasses-free 3D technology that has been developed together with Philips – and <a href=http://www.theverge.com/2012/4/17/2955185/dolby-glasses-free-3d-prototype-philips-hands-on target=_blank><b>they were impressed</b></a>. The technology was showcased at the NAB 2012 convention with material from Captain America and the Art of Flight. <br /><br /><p align=center><a id="thumb" href="pictures/dolby3d-1l.jpg" class="highslide" rel="highslide"><img class="imgresponsive" src="pictures/dolby3d-1.jpg" alt="Dolby’s glasses-free 3D technology" title="Click to enlarge" /></a><br><i>The first hands-on impressions with Dolby’s glasses-free 3D technology are positive</i></p><br />The Verge says that <i>“the picture was so crisp and clean that it almost took a minute to realize we were looking at 3D footage”</i> and that <i>“viewing angles were particularly impressive: even from far off to the side, the 3D effect was still present”</i>. The Verge even says that <i>“based on what we saw the technology is very much ready for public consumption”</i>.<br /><br />The glasses-free 3D technology requires a very high-resolution display panel and Dolby used a 4K panel. The technology boasts 26 different viewing angles - more than today’s glasses-free 3D technology. However, the high resolution demands will make it harder to adopt on smaller devices.<br /><br />Dolby is working with Philips to bring TVs to the market but the companies are currently waiting for high-resolution display panel costs to fall. A 2012 introduction seems unlikely at this point.<br /><br />Learn more about the first-impressions at <a href=http://www.theverge.com/2012/4/17/2955185/dolby-glasses-free-3d-prototype-philips-hands-on target=_blank><b>The Verge</b></a>.
