KOREAN GIANT Samsung Electronics has proudly announced that it has started mass producing 3D televisions at a time when most of us are still saying, "What's the point if you have to wear those silly glasses?"
With the television industry, if not audiences, going crazy for 3D TVs at the moment, the firm will mass produce the panels needed for LED and LCD televisions, possibly prompting the owners of warehouse facilities in South Korea to rejoice and proclaim the end of the recession.
"Recently, 3D displays have captured the industry spotlight," said Wonkie Chang, president of the LCD business at Samsung. "Samsung Electronics aims to lead the global 3D TV panel market in pioneering panel mass production for 3D LED and LCD TVs."
Samsung's 3D televisions will use 3D Active glasses, and should allow for both 2D HD and 3D HD. The firm added that it had reduced the response times associated with its screens down to under four milliseconds, explaining that this would help it to capture and display rapid movement with "exceptional clarity".
Samsung said that its 3D Active glasses use its technology to first block off the left and then the right eye, causing a momentary lag between images. It said that this contributes to user perception of better images.
It sounds like somewhat of a nightmare to us. µ
'Some of us like the misery'
That'll surely affect its credit score
