The Consumer Electronics show IFA 2010 will be all about 3D TV. At a pre-IFA press event yesterday several of the big TV makers showed off their latest and greatest TV technology.
Most of them will debut new 3D TV sets at the IFA 2010. Interestingly almost all of them push different technologies that are supposed to deliver unparallel 3D image quality. Sharp pushes their 4 color Quattron panel technology, Toshiba wants to score with their CELL TV in the 3D space. LG is taking LED panels to the next level with what they call Nano Full LED.
LG enhances direct LED backlighting with a nano screen carrying micro lenses, making the backlighting much more granular.
At the same time Nano Full LED TV technology allows to build ultra-slim panels. LG will debut a 7.8mm thin 3D Nano Full LED HDTV at the IFA 2010. The new LG 3D TV will also just have a 10mm frame in the signature LG Borderless design. I have seen a prototype, but cannot talk about it. IFA 2010 will be stunning.
Side note: I have been skeptical about 3D on TVs. I am still in favor of 3D projectors, but the high-end 3D LCD and Plasma TVs I have experienced yesterday from Samsung and LG are delivering an extremely pleasant 3D image quality.
Besides at least 50-inch in screen size you want 480Hz technology for the best 3D viewing quality. The 55-inch LG INFINIA 55LX9500 (photo) is delivering this. It is supposed to ship soon.
