Samsung MultiView OLED-TV
Samsung: Separate picture & audio sources on same TV

At IFA 2012, Samsung demonstrated their MultiView technology, which is a feature of Samsung’s ES9500 OLED TV. With MultiView technology two users can watch different TV shows with separate audio channels on the same TV.

When Samsung’s OLED-TV hits the market it will be the first to implement Samsung’s MultiView technology. The function allows users to watch two different TV shows on the same screen and have audio delivered straight into the ears with Samsung’s MultiView 3D glasses.

The 3D glasses are wireless and you can switch between the two TV sources with a small button at the top of the frame. The headphones are fastened to the 3D glasses.

Here you see the MultiView technology in action. Notice how you have two different pictures on the same TV. However, both users need to wear 3D glasses because without 3D glasses pictures on the TV screen gets mixed together


We had the system demonstrated and it worked flawlessly. The images were perfectly separated unlike some of the demonstrations we have seen on LCD TVs. That is probably why Samsung has hesitated to introduce the technology in the past and has made it part of their OLED-TV launch.

The real question is if you want to wear 3D glasses to watch a regular show in 2D? The system obviously requires both persons to wear 3D glasses.
