Samsung is stepping up its 3D offerings in a big way. The company has launched a new service in Japan that allows Samsung television owners to access 3D content on demand. The 3D VODS kick off with a few movie trailers, a few features and even a concert. Educational content, including a television show that teaches Japanese children how to speak English, is also featured.
One of the big problems with 3D televisions in the home is the lack of a standard for active shutter glasses. If you own a pair of glasses that work with your Samsung TV, for example, they might not work with your friend's Panasonic 3D set.
Panasonic revealed pricing on both its LCD and plasma TV lines, but let's be honest, no one's really excited about Panasonic LCDs. It's all about plasma, and Panasonic agrees, stating that they had a 10 percent year-to-year growth in plasmas in 2010.
You've probably heard about Mitsubishi's impressive LaserVue DLPs that replace standard lighting with lasers, cutting power while expanding color. Mitsubishi is happy with their results, but is looking to expand that technology into the realm of LCDs.
Active shutter glasses not your thing? Looking for a set you can use your Oakley or Armani 3D glasses with? Don't want to shell out $200 every time someone sits on their fancy 3D glasses? LG's LW5700 may be for you.
