Last year we reported that the 3D fad may be over. Well not so fast. Apparently Stream TV Networks, a Philadelphia-based new media company, has developed an Ultra-D TV that displays true 3D images without you donning 3D glasses. Which is great news for those wearing spectacles.
The Ultra-D TV can display in 3D at 2160p resolution (without the need for glasses). It also outputs full 4K with 8 million pixels in 2D. The media source can be fed from 3D Blu-ray discs, Sky 3D or even upscaled from 2D. You can also play 3D games on them glasses-free. The company claims that the 3D will even work no matter where you’re sitting in the room. For those who have problems discerning 3D depth, you’d like to know that the level of 3D can be controlled to create a flatter or deeper 3D picture and at the same time alleviating complaints of motion sickness.
No 3D content in your collection? No problem. Stream Networks has an auto-converter box that converts 2D content into 3D. Just plug your cable, satellite, Blu-ray or DVD into the box and watch anything in 3D (without glasses).
Stream TV Networks will be licensing the Ultra-D technology to a number of manufacturers, so expect these TVs to come storming into stores by 2015.
Watch this short demo. Stunning (to the naked eye) to say the least:
This technology is revolutionary and it will change the way we watch TV. 2D will no longer do.
