3D Television From Samsung
Samsung is one of the top electronics makers in the world. Like most other TV manufacturers, Samsung has jumped in with both feet into the 3D television market.
3D TV works in many ways like 3D movies do. Indeed, much of the available 3D content comes from new Blu-ray DVDs of 3D movies. These special Blu-ray DVDs carry essentially two copies of the film. One copy is meant for the right eye and the other copy is meant for the left eye. Of course, to make sure the right eye sees the right image at the right time takes more than just a fancy DVD player. It also takes a fancy TV, and, yes, a pair of special 3D glasses.
Enter Samsung's lineup of 3D television sets. The Samsung PN50C7000, for example, is one of the company's 3D-ready plasma TVs. Many of the set's specifications read like any other high-end plasma TV set. A 50-inch screen, HDTV tuner up to 1080p, HDMI inputs, high dynamic contrast ratio, and so on. What makes it special is a 3D rendering engine that takes a 3D source signal and displays it to the screen in a precise manner allowing it to produce a 3D picture in your own home theater.
Samsung has branded their 3D rendering system, Hyper Real 3D Engine. The system takes a 3D signal and then displays it on the screen in a specific manner. Essentially, a 3D source sends two signals. Each signal is displayed on the televisions screen just like any regular 2D content. However, the Samsung 3D TV emits a signal that is received by a pair of Samsung 3D glasses. For example, the Samsung 305P2100T 3D glasses are compatible with the PN50C7000 3D TV. The glasses only allow one eye to see the screen at a time. The signal from the TV instructs the glasses when to allow the right eye to see and then when to allow the left eye to see. When this all matches up, the result is realistic 3D images from your TV set.
