The 21:9 Gold Series 3DTV proves that Philips is considered passive 3D technology to be a viable option in the 3D entertainment world. With the prices of passive glasses coming in much cheaper than their active-frame counterparts, don’t be surprised if consumers find it in their hearts to embrace the passive 3D movement.
The 50-inch Gold Series screen flawlessly toggles between 2D and 3D with Philips’ “Easy 3D” mode which offers up some pretty spot on gaming features. Consider a 2 player game in which the screen in split. When playing in 2D, it’ll be exactly what you’d expect: a split screen. But, when the unit is toggled to “Easy 3D”, each player will see their gaming experience take up the entire screen. That’ll likely be a huge lure for avid gamers.
Onboard Wi-Fi gives users the ability to stream content while dabbling on social networking sites, and all of it is delivered in beautiful LED-backlighting. With what they call Ambilight Spectra 2 lighting, the lights will change color depending on what’s being shown. The European market will get their hands on the 21:9 3DTV first, so we’ll keep you posted as more information leaks.
