Japan’s Dimenco introduces 52-inch glasses-free 3D TV

“What is perhaps the most technologically sophisticated 3D TV is now a fait de compli in Japan,” Raven Lovecraft reports for TG Daily.

“But it’s not quite ready for consumers,” Lovecraft reports. “The 52-inch glasses-free 3D TV, using a new kind of display tech, is currently being peddled to business customers that can produce their own 3D content.”

Lovecraft reports, “It comes from Dimenco, a small company made up of former Philips employees. The group created a new kind of glasses-free 3D technology that, unlike the displays used in products like Nintendo’s 3DS, can be scaled to large-screen devices without any real loss in visual fidelity… It can [also] project any kind of 3D content that’s already on the market today. In fact, it can even take a 2D video and convert it into 3D in real time.”

  1. In fact, it can even take a 2D video and convert it into 3D in real time.

    I call bullsh*t on that. How can you convert an ordinary 2D video to 3D with only one video angle to work with? I’m sure they have such a feature, and I’m sure it looks horrible.


    1. Actually, PowerDVD 11 does that. I’ve watched several of my DVDs in 3D. If I haven’t seen it, I wouldn’t believe it either though. It uses clever scripting, reading visual cues in the image. It’s not perfect, but extremely impressive. Also works with still photos.

  2. Cool tech.
    However considering how long it has taken HDTV to become the norm I will wait a long time before buying any 3d tv.
    Over 5 years ago I bought my HDTV. It annoyed me that the amount of channels availbe then in hd was pitiful.
    Even now most of the content on cable is still sdtv. Several Channels that do provide hd service are not carried by my cable co. why by this tech when it takes years to become fully deployed.
