A Toshiba spokesperson has claimed that the Japanese company would deliver 3D without glasses within the next 12 months at the Toshiba World Conference.
Toshiba has revealed a series of 3D televisions to an audience in Rome, opting for passive 3D over the more expensive active shutter technology.
The ‘Regza’ range of TVs, including the WL and YL 3D Pro-LED TV series, includes real time 2D to 3D upscaling, back and edge lighting LED technology together, WiFi, DLNA and Windows 7 compatibility.
The TV’s use a 7-core CEVO engine that makes it the fastest processor on the TV market for optimising picture quality.
Face detection is on board to detect who is sitting in front of the TV and allows personalised settings (including typical TV settings, channels and online settings) to be tailored to multiple users.
The range also comes stocked with four HDMI ports and a USB slot that works like a PVR for recording content.
Global availability for the latest Regza TVs was yet to be announced after the preview.
Toshiba first announced a partnership with RealD early last year, with an aim at delivering high definition 3D content to more potential customers.
Toshiba is currently restructuring its digital products and services arms under a single in-house company to optimise its business in the next financial year, with a focus on converging technologies like LCD TV’s and tablets.
“The new structure will also promote synergies in the convergence of LCD TVs, PCs and slate-type terminals and facilitate the creation of distinctive products and services based on the fusion of advanced digital products and technologies,” the company said in a statement.
Part of this reorganisation is meant to promote its internet-based services like Toshiba Places and the apps component of its latest Regza TVs.
