In the realm of 3D TVs Sony’s presentation received a lot of attention, as Rob Pegoraro reported:
I haven’t found a company more enthusiastic about 3D technology than Sony. Chief executive Howard Stringer (below) and other executives with the Japanese electronics giant adopted the theme “3D goes personal” for its news conference.
Beyond shipping the expected lineup of 3D high-def TVs, Sony will also ship a 3D-enabled Vaio laptops and 3D-capable versions of its Handycam and Bloggie video cameras that could let users make their own 3D movies. And it will launch a full-time 3D network called 3Net with IMAX and Silver Spring-based Discovery Communications.
Sony also showed off prototypes of a 3D visor you could wear to watch 3D content on a plane, as well as a portable Blu-ray player that would join those cameras in being “glassless.” It’s working on making glassless 3D work on full-sized TVs too.
Once again, Asia rocks the Consumer Electronics Show.
