JVC developing 300 inch 3D HDTV

Seems like this week is 3D TV week! Hot on the heels of the Philips 3D BluRay player comes news of stunning new 3D TV technology from Victor Company of Japan (aka JVC) and Japan’s NICT. The new display is a full HD TV that can display 3D images without the need for special glasses. Better still, the two organizations have developed a 72″ 3D display to demonstrate the technology, and believe they can scale it up to a massive 200 inch display.

Their technology uses three separate full-HD projectors that project the image onto the back of the screen. Because each projector offers full-HD resolution (1920 x 1080p), that’s an incredible 100 million pixels in total.

The benefits of this technology are that the 3D images can be seen from a variety of different angles, and not just from looking directly at the screen, which is a limitation inherent in many current 3D TV technologies. It also offers much higer resolution than other technologies – indeed, this is the only full-HD 3D TV technology in existence.

Unfortunately, it’s only at the prototype stage at the moment, and they’re not expecting it to go into commercialization until 2011, but at least that gives you time enough to save up your pennies (and for the world to regain some rich bankers again!), as with three separate full-HD projectors, this baby ain’t exactly gonig to be cheap!
