LG Display, who makes display panels for Apple, is set to launch a new 23″ 3D LCD panel with full HD resolution. The new product still needs users to wear shutter glasses to get the full advantage of LG’s 3D technology. The company has also admitted that there is very little full HD 3D content for consumers to view at this stage.LG claims that, through the use of a “high performance 3D exclusive controller”, it is able able to process more than twice the image data as other HD 3D LCDs. It also uses “copper bus line” to improve on the resolution and picture quality, the company said.
In addition, the panel is able to reproduce both 2D and 3D images, allowing users to switch back and forth from 2D and 3D modes.
Although full HD 3D images have been developed for contents such as video games, movies and animations, 3D display products with full HD resolution were unavailable in the market, it said.
The commercial launch of LG Display’s full HD 3D LCD panel is expected to help to boost development of high resolution 3D contents while allowing users to view true-to-life 3D images.
The Korea Communications Commission recently announced plans to start a trial service for the world’s first full HD 3D terrestrial broadcasting from the second half of 2010. A launch of trial services for 3D satellite broadcasts had been also announced earlier in Japan and the UK but not Australia.
