Our deep dive explains the inner workings of digital video distribution, explaining the often confusing aspects of what goes into the system.
Mix outdoor entertainment with 3D TV, and what do you get? A giant new LED display from Toshiba.
During Integrated Systems Europe 2011, the company is demonstrating the technology for the first time.
Charley Bocklet, national sales manager for LED Display Systems, says the Toshiba product is unique for a few reasons.
Most 3D-capable LED systems are made for the indoors, while the Toshiba version is designed for outdoor spaces. More interestingly, the new display uses inexpensive passive 3D glasses so that companies don’t need to worry about powering and distributing pricey active lenses.
The display looks perfectly fine in 2D and really cool in 3D with passive glasses…simultaneously.
During ISE 2011 — as long as you were watching from at least 20 feet away or so — the video was completely adequate and the 3D had a decent pop to it.
The secret is a four-color system (a la Sharp’s Quattron) that blends RGB and amber LEDs.
“Imagine this in a big arena — you can watch with or without glasses,” Bocklet says.
The system has yet to be deployed.
Almost as new as the 3D LED system in Toshiba’s ISE booth is the company’s 4mm LED wall, one of which was recently installed in the new TNT on NBA set at Turner Studio.
There, the 33-foot display allows producers to “change the backdrop of the set seamlessly,” Bocklet says.
At ISE, even up close the picture looks pretty sharp, but step back just a few feet and it is crystal clear.
