Panasonic Corp unveiled 50 inch high-definition 3D plasma TV really hooked up lots of attention!
At a demonstration at Panasonic’s head office in Osaka, F1 race cars roared right by viewers and gymnasts barreled down a runway, hitting vaulting horse and flipping toward the audience.
Yoshiiku Miyata, Panasonic managing executive officer in charge of audio visual products, said, “We’ve introduced concrete plans to deliver the first 3D into people’s homes. It won’t disappoint.”
It technology works by tricking the brain into seeing 3D as high-speed shutters in the glasses work in sync with the TV to deliver a double layered image at twice the speed of normal TV.
The company hopes the smaller, more living room friendly 50 inch model will become a popular choice for home theatre.
Chief rival electronics maker Sony Corp announced earlier this month it also plans to launch 3D TVs by 2010.
