Stream TV Unveils Glasses-Free 2160p 3DTV
Specialty TV provider Stream TV believes it has effectively addressed what is probably the No. 1 consumer complaint about 3DTV in the home: the glasses. At a press conference held prior to the 2013 CES Show on Jan. 7 in Las Vegas, the company announced its new Ultra D 2160p technology, which it claims provides an authentic, full-bodied 3D home television experience without glasses at 2160p resolution.
Stream TV CEO Mathu Rajan presented the company's new proprietary technology, claiming it was as revolutionary a change to television as the transition from black and white to color.
According to Rajan, most 3D systems currently on the market achieve the three-dimensional effect one of two ways: either through stereoscopic viewing, which splits images and creates the illusion of 3D by sending different information to each eye; or the barrier method, which, in effect, blocks out certain objects in the background of scenes to “push” other elements up and create the appearance of depth.
