First Look: Watch 3D without the glasses Video Transcript
Hi, I'm David Katzmaier from CNET. And I'm standing here with the Toshiba Glasses Free 3D TV. This is gonna be the first TV to hit the US market that actually incorporates 3D TV effects without the need to wear glasses. The real key here is the head tracking technology that enables the TV to shoot the 3D image which actually requires separate right and left eye images right to each different person in the room without having to use glasses. So if you stand in different portions of the room, you can actually watch as the head tracking technology figures where you are and locks in that 3D effect. The 3D effect that I saw was a little bit less Jurassic than I've seen on some of the other glasses TVs and I've also been told that the resolution is a little bit less in 3D than in some of the other glasses 3D TVs I've seen. But to me it did look pretty darn sharp on this 55 inch model. Now, the TV behind me is not gonna be the exact shipping version that hits US shores. This is actually a prototype, the one that's available in Japan and Germany released in December. It's similar to this and I think the U.S. one will also be similar. On the other hand, this TV in 2D has 4K by 2K resolution which is a lot higher than current (??) TVs so it can accept that really high resolution content. There's not much of it right now but when it comes out, it will be able to handle that in 2D. The real play here is the glasses free 3D TV which again is a pretty cool effect. It had a little bit of art effects from what I saw but again this is a free production version so maybe they'll work that out in the next few months as this TV hits US shores. That's a quick look at the Toshiba Glasses-Free 3D and I'm David Katzmaier .
