JAPANESE PHOTOGRAPHY FIRM Fujifilm has announced its Finepix Real 3D V3, a glasses-free 3D display.
The Real 3D V3 is a glasses-free 3D 'digital viewer', which to us means display or monitor. Its primary function is for viewing photos and videos, but in 3D of course.
Fujifilm said, "The FinePix REAL 3D V3 Viewer is the first from Fujifilm to use a lenticular system for viewing images. The 'no-glasses required' system makes for crystal clear 3D images, and don't suffer from any on-screen flickering."
The display features a 7.2in screen with a 3D 'lenticular' display that works the same as a device like the Nintendo 3DS and LG Optimus 3D. This size makes it similar to a digital photo frame. The firm touts wide viewing angles of 160 degrees horizontally and 140 degrees vertically.
The device has moved on since its first version, now offering HD 720p playback compared to VGA. Fujifilm said its screen is now significantly brighter than that of its predecessor.
It has only 512MB of internal storage but an SD card slot will enable this to be topped up. There is an HDMI port so you can plug in devices such as Blu-ray players and smartphones.
It also has stereo speakers and a remote control included. The firm hasn't revealed any prices or availability yet. µ
