Sensio 3D Autodetect Technology goes into First 3DTV Sets
SENSIO Technologies Inc. (Toronto, Canada) announced that it has signed its first license agreement for the integration of its Autodetect into "System on a Chip" intergrated circuits destined to the consumer 3DTV market. The components will be commercially made available in 2013 for 3DTV and media streaming device manufacturers.
SENSIO Autodetect is a feature enhancing the usability of devices for viewing 3D stereoscopic video by quickly, reliably and automatically detecting the input format, whether 2D, side-by-side, top-and-bottom or SENSIO Hi-Fi 3D.
The 84" 3DTV of You Dreams is Here
With its 4K resolution and its massive 84" size, the LG 84LM9600 will cover a good chunk of your living room wall. Of course at 20,000$, even high-end wallpaper will be less expensive. That didn't stopped the 300 people who purchased on in Seoul, South Korea, ccording to Engadget. US Sales are estimated at around 3,000 six months after the launch in July 2012.
Four times the resolution of existing HD TV panels and CINEMA 3D technology will ensure the impressively large display provides the most immersive and comfortable viewing experience possible. 3D Depth Control allows viewers to fine-tune the "distance" between near and far objects on the screen for a custom stereoscopic 3D experience. The 3D Sound Zooming feature then analyses the on-screen objects to generate sound according to their location and movement.
95" and 110" models are expected before Christmas 2013.
See-through 3D TV from HiSense
HiSense (China) presented a proof-of-concept transparent 3D TV at CES 2013 in Las Vegas, NV, USA. As demonstrated by the WIRED reporter here under, the thin stereoscopic 3D LCD panel lets viewers see through its Full HD image as in the CSI TV series labs.
HiSense is "testing the water" with this prototype intended to corporate buyers. The key difference between this 3D TV and a normal TV is that the backlight is disconnected from the LCD panel itself. Normally the backlight and LCD are fixed together, but to make this transparent set HiSense mounted the backlight on a wall and the screen several inches away from it in front.

3D TV For Dummies
MakeUseOf -the tips and help web site for everybody- released a short but simple to understand paper titled "3D TVs: What They Are, How They Work, & What Can They Show In 3D?". The paper explaisn about the different types of stereoscopic 3DTV -passive, active, and glasses-free- as well as touch on some confusion that surrounds them.
