Toshiba Says Its Glasses-Free TV Is Coming in Less Than a Year

It’s coming soon, the ability to watch 3D TVs without the need for 3D glasses. While attending CES, I have witnessed different companies showcasing their glasses-free 3D TVs. It’s still new technology, so the effect of the 3D still isn’t perfected, for example, backgrounds popping up while the foreground looks distant. The key factor is that the position and angle of the person is very important.

Toshiba has announced that within the next 12 months, it will be releasing its glasses-free 3D TVs, along with its own line of passive 3D TV series in June. With the passive 3D, it will make it the second company to join the passive 3D technology (LG being the other).

The Regza VL series of LED panels will make it the company’s first passive 3D to enter the market. The full HD TVs series will include 4 RealD 3D glasses, similar to the ones used in theaters. It comes in 42- and 47-inch screen size and will include Toshiba Places, a smart TV platform that will allow users access to a cloud-based content and internet services on demand, which uses an app-based system for services like Flickr and the BBC’s iPlayer.

The VL series will be available in the UK in June with no prices yet announced. No other information is yet available for the glasses-free 3D TVs.

Looks like we’ll have to wait for the next CES to check out their progress and status on the glasses-free TV sets.
