We Tested Panasonic’s Latest 3D Full HD Plasma for You

Introduced last year at CEATEC 2008, Panasonic invited us to watch some video footage of their latest 3D Full HD Plasma Theater Home Theater System.

Basically the system enables the viewing of true-to-life 3D FHD images by using a Panasonic 103-inch Plasma HDTV and a Panasonic Blu-ray Disc (BD) player, capable of distributing full high definition (1920 x 1080 pixels) images to each eye. To enjoy this nice Full HD PDP requires a special set of glasses.

To be honest, the demonstration was quite surprising and really interesting. Before attending the presentation, we expected to see classic 3D images where objects and characters emerge from the screen (like a ball coming out of the screen and coming straight on you).

Actually the result of this Full HD Plasma was impressive thanks to the depth offered by the image. We had a real 3D image that gave the illusion of being on the TV next to the characters.

As an example, Panasonic showed us video footage of a football match. It really felt like being on the field with the players and I almost felt I was playing football. Not only did the image provide real depth and totally immersed you in the video, but the quality was also amazing thanks to the Blu-ray ..

Of course not all was perfect. Sometimes when the video was of fast moving scenes moving the picture became a little blurry… Maybe this came from my brain having problems following what was going on.

Regardless, it worked well and we hope to see this nice beast on the market soon.

PS: We weren’t allowed to take pictures as the 3D Full HD Plasma is still a prototype.

    Were the glasses passive or the shutter-glass type?

  • Simpson

    They were active, of course. I think the problem with the fast motion is the temporal assymetry. In other words: one eye is seeing the “past” and another eye is seeing “the future” as both eyes are not presented the same image at the same moment in time.

    When movement is fast, the difference in time-space is big and your brain/eyes complain about it (=headaches if you watch for too long).

    Passive technology is much better. All is needed is a monitor with 1920×2160 resolution and alternate the polarization of each line for 3D and simply interpolate the pixels vertically for 2D.

    How are they going to sell their overpriced active glasses if they opt for passive technology? :D

    And yes, probably at that kind of panel size it would be possible to have double density on vertical pixels. Not too sure about realtime interpolation for 2D and its effect on HD footage though. I suspect we’ll either end up with half vertical res passive tech or full-res active one. We’ll have to wait and see I guess :S

    I see your latest plasma 3d hd Tv will be launched in January in Germany. When will it be released in the UK ?
