Panasonic has given a US debut to the world's first 3D Full HD Plasma Home Theater System (the 3D FHD) at CES.
Panasonic’s 3D Full HD Plasma Home Theater System claims to enable the viewing of true-to-life 3D FHD images by using a Panasonic 103-inch plasma HDTV and a Panasonic Blu-ray player, capable of distributing full High Definition (1920 x 1080 pixels) images to the left eye and right eye.
"This goes well beyond conventional 3D and Panasonic is fully committed to making it a reality, and soon", said Bob Perry, executive vice president, Panasonic.
"Plasma is currently the only TV capable of delivering a 3D Full HD experience due in great part to its ability to refresh at a speed which enables multiple image display without loss of resolution. The integration of Hollywood's 3D content with Panasonic's industry leading Plasma, Blu-ray and 3D FHD technologies deliver a truly immersive experience which will elevate home entertainment to a whole new level of excitement. You will no longer just be watching a movie, you’ll be experiencing the realism of Hollywood film".
The system uses a special pair of active shutter glasses that work in sync with the TV meaning that the viewer is able to experience 3D images "formed with twice the volume of information" as regular full HD images.
