A high definition flatscreen television that can show crisp 3D movies without sacrificing the quality of its 2D image—that’s the Panasonic VIERA 3D television.
The 50″ VIERA refreshes at a blazing 600Hz, delivers a more-vivid-than-real-life 5,000,000:1 contrast ratio and, of course, offers 1080p picture quality. That’s rather incredible considering the television’s ultraslim (3.6″ thick) profile. But what’s really stunning is that the VIERA’s 3D viewing experience is actually better than you’d get at the movie theater. Combine that with the rapidly increasing selection of 3D Blu-ray discs and you might never leave your house again.
Vondrous previously featured a Samsung 3D HD television set. The perfect compliment to that: a Samsung’s 3D Blu-Ray Player. That combo brings a whole new world of 3D viewing possibilities to your home. And not only with specially made 3D discs. Ordinary 2D movies and even your home photographs can be “up-converted” to 3D as well.
So is the technology ready for prime time? Check out this list of Samsung 3D Blu-Ray player pros and cons.
A vondrous SAT-style analogy question:
Black and white television is to color as color television is to ________________?
The answer: 3D high def television.
The next generation of TV set is bound to be ubiquitous in homes a decade from now. But you needn’t wait that long. There’s a selection of 3D televisions out on the market now. And the best of them, the Samsung 3D series, delivers surprisingly high quality at a surprisingly low price. Pair it with a Samsung 3D Blu-ray player and bring the 3D movie theater experience to your home.
