Samsung demos 55-inch 240Hz 3D HDTV
Samsung recently showed off a prototype 3D HDTV sized at 55 inches. The set uses a 240Hz speed panel for reproducing traditional two-dimensional images at up to 1080p resolution, and sends out 120Hz images to each eye when in 3D mode. Samsung claims there is no ghosting during fast scenes in 3D mode, while no loss of resolution is endured when watching traditional content.
Like with most 3D systems, special shutter eyewear is needed to view the 3D images. The prototype is being shown off at the currently ongoing IMID show in Seoul, Korea. There is no indication of when or if the Samsung 3D HDTV is coming to market in its current form.
