CES 2008 Video: Westinghouse Passive 3D LCD television
Westinghouse is working on a gamer’s dream - a passively 3D LCD television. By aiming pixels in different directions, the television creates the illusion of depth thanks to the varying overlap points. This feat is accomplished using only one screen! The downside? Because the pixels are aimed in different directions, the television isn’t capable of switching between 2D and 3D.
The ideal viewing spot for the television is about 1.5 meters - from further away the picture resembles that of a regular 2D television and from closer the images can be a little harder to view.
The passive 3D technology has been in development for about a year. The display has been in development for about six months, and the whole shebang was perfected about three months ago. Westinghouse predicts that their passive 3D display will become available first to the commercial market.
