SYDNEY: Samsung has debuted what they claim is the world’s first commercially available 3D television, due for a June release this year.
The 450 model, part of Samsung’s new 4, 5, 6 and 7 series television range unveiled today, will allow viewers who use special polarised glasses (sold separately) to view specially made 3D content, such as films and video games.
Unveiling the 450, Samsung AV marketing division CTV product manager, Erin Anderson, told media the television would work with upcoming Disney and DreamWorks films released in special 3D versions, and came with special drivers for 30 current PC games to allow full 3D gaming if a PC is connected as well.
Those with Google Earth will also be able to view the latest Version 4.3 beta in full 3D.
The 450 will be available in 42- and 50-inch sizes, and claims to have a 1,000,000:1 dynamic contrast ratio. Prices have yet to be set.
