If you are a 3D fan like many others, it is recommended that you think about 3D TVs bigger than mere 42 inch. This is mainly the reason why the new 46 inch TX – P46VT20B has all the ingredients to rule the 3D television market. The fact that it uses the Plasma technology adds to the list of highlights.
The TX-P46VT20B certainly has a lot more potential and hence has the ability to attract a lot of 3D lovers. The TV is filled with some of the best features including recording that can be done in HD to USB HDD, Viera Cast Online service etc.
Experts believe that the new VT20 series from the house of Panasonic is right up there on the top of the chart when it comes to the consumer TV tree. It is one position above the V series. The V series also offers more or less the same features. However it doesn’t have the 3D readiness. Incase if you are looking for all the 3D thrills at a relatively cheaper price, the P42GT20 is highly recommended. However this model does not have the Infinite Black Pro technology that is present in the VT20 series. This technology is necessary for enhanced contrast. The in-built subwoofer is also not included in this economy model.
It is believed that the TX-P46VT20B is one TV that would be hard to beat when it comes to performance and quality. Almost all leading TV brands are flooding the market with the brand new generation of the much hyped 3D televisions. However, this amazing model from Panasonic might just be a touch difficult to match.

We’ve been dancing around this fire for a few years now, and while I’m still waiting for hologram football games, the latest prototype from Samsung definitely proves that they intend on staying on top of the 3D television market. At a FPD Chinese trade event, a prototype was debuted proving that they have indeed been working on a glasses-free 3D television.
The 55-inch screen is quite a sight, and with nine various viewing angles available, it will assuredly accommodate a living room full of people. The ability to turn the 3D aspect off and deliver a quality 2D picture will excite many, as well. How is this possible? It’s all about light refraction, actually. The optical refraction index of LCD panels that covers the primary LCD screen allows the television to deliver the 3D effects to the viewer. In other words, though it isn’t exact, one could claim that the television itself is actually wearing the glasses.
A CCFL backlight display centers as the main viewing apparatus, but Samsung admits that this will probably be replaced with an LED backlight before the unit is released. While the prototype created quite a stir, the company reminds us that it is still in development, and that consumers won’t likely have the opportunity to purchase the television for a few years, yet.

The Sony KDL-EX720 gets reviewed, and stands up to the challenge. This is a great unit with a price tag that should make it very popular
Sony’s latest release, the KDL-EX720, is the most cost effective way to upgrade your television unit in 2011 thus far. Due to the 3D capability and the 240 Hz refresh rate, you can get performance without the massive price tag on a lot of other units.
Energy efficiency and a matte screen that reduces glare will ensure that you are always receiving an optimal viewing experience. Internet connectivity and a sleek design will help the integration into your entertainment setup without breaking the bank.
Information regarding the public perception of 3D pricing has shown that cheaper models will likely be met with great response. The ability to upgrade a unit and still have cash left over for some other components will surely make the EX720 a very popular choice for consumers this summer.
There are some drawbacks, however, as the blacks aren’t as deep as we’d like, but despite any picture flaws, the features more than make up for it. In a nutshell, the EX720 offers quite a bit for an incredible low price, and those just getting introduced to streaming content on their television units will be more than happy with the amenities involved. Need a new TV? Consider Sony’s KDL-EX720 a viable option, and learn what all the latest units are actually capable of.

The battle has been brewing and those that have paid attention may have noticed that the shots are getting bigger, and the competition seems to be getting quite rough in the 3D technology world. So, while the industry is still sorting out whether active shutter 3D glasses or the latest release, Film Pattern Retarder (FPR) passive 3D glasses will be the new standard, LG is firing on all cylinders.
Korea has already seen advertisements involving LG touting the benefits of passive technology over the active shutter design. They boast that the 3D experience continues even when the viewer is laying horizontally on the couch, unlike the competitor’s design. Samsung was quick to retaliate, calling LG’s statements “stupid” at a press conference, sparking rumors of a Celebrity Cage Match to the death between the rival CEO’s.
We’ve gotten used to this sort of back and forth as the biggest TV suppliers on the block continue to fire jabs. While LG continues the long courtship of bringing Sony into the fold, they continue to develop the technology with Vizio, Philips, and Toshiba. This could create some healthy competition, but the unfortunate aspect here is that it leaves consumers in “no man’s land”. Should they invest in the passive technology? What if we learn that it was a fleeting hope? Honestly, if LG is telling the truth, and the viewer doesn’t need to remain upright to enjoy the 3D experience, this could be a changing of the guard in the 3D TV world.

3D TV comes in more than a few shapes and sizes these days, but when two of the big dogs get involved in creating more content, it’s bound to make the news. And…here we are! Sky and Virgin Media are delivering plenty of 3D content over the course of the remaining year in the UK. This is great news, as one of the single, largest complaints about the 3D platform is the lack of content. This should shake things up a bit.
Sky is paying close attention to the content of its 3D TV network, and the announcement that they’ve created “Colossus Productions” should be a shot of excitement to the industry. It isn’t stopping there, however, as Hollywood has decided that they need to step up their game…as if that hasn’t been decades in the making…but I digress…
Apparently, the movie sector in southern California has been paying attention, as there are several 3D movies in the works that should do plenty to thrill fans of 3D cinema. And, with all of this excitement going on, nobody’s even mentioned the sequel to Avatar when talking about 3D Hollywood releases…not even in this article…wait…dang it!
The creation of 3D in post-production is likely headed the way of the dinosaur, as theatre-goers have been burned enough times to be skeptical, but with the new resurgence in content that we’re expecting, don’t be surprised it everything gets a mulligan. Movies like The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey 3D should do plenty to create some competition…why? Because this movie, due out in 2012 will likely blow the doors off of any 3D record that we’ve seen to date. Another Spider Man installment is due out next year, as well, so look for the 3D cinema to start heating up…right about when the weather does…

Futuresource Consulting conducted a study to find out just how well the 3D movement is taking hold in America. Their figures expect that 15 million 3D TVs will be in living rooms across the country by the end of 2012, which should excite manufacturers and create a demand for more 3D content. Despite numbers that show lower sales in the previous years, there is growth which is sparking speculation that the trend will continue.
The consulting firm points to improved 3D content as a major reason why global 3D TV sales have jumped from 4 million last year to an expected 8 million this year. As the streaming content continues to pour out, consumer awareness should cause a surge in unit sales. The end of last year’s content figures were something to the tune of 2 3D channels, 11 3D streaming services, and 6 various on-demand video services. That isn’t bad considering that many weren’t sure if the 3D fascination would last.
Consider the sale of Blu-ray discs as another opportunity to gauge consumer interest in 3D content. Less than 1 percent of Blu-ray sales in 2010 involved 3D content, but they said that number will skyrocket to 25% by 2015. Futuresource also noted that Transformers and Harry Potter will likely be the 3D Blu-ray frontrunners this year. So whaddya say? Jumping on board the 3D train? It seems that there’s never been a better time…
