We are always looking for ways to further enhance our viewing experience. Movie theaters have worked hard at trying to do just that. New and bigger screens, luxury seating, and louder surround sound are just a few examples. There has always been one thing more that seems to always garner more excitement, 3-D. The technology offers us a unique viewing that allows us to feel as if we are actually right there.
Television makers have tried for years to incorporate the 3-D technology to the actual television sets. We have always been able to watch 3-D like programming, but there has never been a television that offers us an actual 3-D effect with everything we watch. Samsung is hitting the market with technology that will allow us to do just that. The year 2009 will see the introduction of the Samsung 3-D TV.
Manufactures have worked for nearly twenty years to incorporate this technology. Samsung’s rear-projection televisions offer a 3-D fantasy. Their TVs will incorporate 120 frames per second of action. This is 60 frames per second more than the average television set. Each TV will also be equipped with alternate right and left eye perspectives. Like any 3-D experience, the viewer will have to wear glasses. The glasses will be equipped with shutters on each eye. Each shutter will allow the eye to sync with alternating frames. This is what creates the 3-D effect.
I learned about the technology through watching a marketing presentation at a conference I was at. The Samsung staff were very professional in demonstrating the 3-D technology. A Playstation 3 was used to demonstrate how life like the graphics can be. The power of the 3-D TV made almost anything look life like. I watched guests play video games on the system. It looked like monsters and sword wielding hereos were actually jumping out towards us. Sporting events looked just as good. This was the closest thing to a 3-D television experience that I have ever experienced. This made me conduct my own research of how great this technology is.
Basically, video games and current 3-D similar movies look phenomenal with this technology. Samsung is hoping that gamers will fall in love with the technology. Games allow the players to truly enjoy all the perks that a 3-D experience can offer them. The technology itself will be rather affordable for Samsung owners. You will be able to purchase the 3-D kit for $200. If you do not own a Samsung television, it will be best to purchase an LCD or Plasma. The technology works best with those two types of TVs.
