Mitsubishi is Going to be Bringing the LaserVue 3D HDTVs in Europe

August 23rd, 2011 · 6 Comments · General 3D News

Mitsubishi has had some very interesting 3D-capable products for a while now that only remained accessible in North American markets such as the company’s 3D DLP HDTVs or their newer LaserVue 3D HDTVs, but this is apparently about to change. It seems that Mitsubishi Electric is going to be bringing the 3D display products based on the innovative laser technology that the company has developed to Europe to demonstrate it during the IFA trade show in Berlin next month. This does not mean that the company will be starting to offer these products immediately to European customers, showing them during the trade show is more like for checking the level of interest both from customers and from possible partners. After all the big screen LaserVue 3D HTVTs are a high-end product and the company needs to check the market before starting to sell them, and hopefully they will, giving access to the technology to all of us living in Europe.

Also making their first appearance at IFA will be Mitsubishi’s HC9000 Advanced 3D Home Cinema Projector as well as another anticipated 3D-capable projector – the Mitsubishi HC7800 expected to be available in October. So aside from the 3D-capable LaserVue TV product line you may also want to take a look at Mitsubishi’s 3D DLP projectors that are going to be available at their booth in the trade show. The IFA 2011 Trade show in Berlin is going to be held between September 2nd and 7th and you will be able to find Mitsubishi in Hall 7.2.B, Booth 101 if you are interested in the company’s 3D-capable products that will be showcased there and of course you happen to visit IFA.

    I’d expect that thing to be extremely power comsuming – from that point of view a no go (at least for me).

    Well, it is not, the LaserVue line of 3D HDTVs is consuming less power than what a 3D LCD of the same size does, let alone a 3D Plasma HDTV. With LaserVue we are talking about sub 100W power consumption in normal operation mode for a 75-inch 3D HDTV.

    Ah, you’re absolutely right. Another prove for the fact that u (me) have to verify against different news sources before u comment on things ;-)

    Hey, Bloody, I have mentioned before I use a 50″ Samsung LED lit DLP for my 3D gaming. DLP is really my pick because I like the large screen vs gaming on a 20 something inch. All DLPs use the wobulating half res chip. Everyone wrongly says it displays 3D at half resolution, but what is really happening is 1080P 30 stereo is being displayed in checkerboard at 1080P 60. Mathematically this is exactly the same as line interleaved, or the way the new LG/vizio passive tvs are displaying the 3D. Interleaved shows what appears to be aliasing when viewed up close. The difference is with the checkerboard the blocks are much larger than the height of a single pixel as with shifting horizontal lines.

    My point being, checkerboard is my prefered 3D format since it is seen as 1080P 30 instead instead of 1080P 24 via HDMI 1.4 of any flavor.

    So likewise, Samsung 7000 and up LED LCD supports checkerboard format, so tridef and iz3d can be used with these sets using CB natively for the improved FPS.

    Those 6 extra FPS make all the difference in the world, by the way, but I know you have played plenty of games that lock at 30, so you know the difference.

    I’d also prefer DLP checkerboard over a row interleaved 3D display… and being able to play in 30 instead of 24 fps 3D mode really does make all the difference, although getting 60fps is even better ;)

    Yeah, I wish someone would support Dual-Link or some other format that we could use to get 60 fps stereo on a large screen instead of a monitor. After gaming on my 50″ DLP, or my 120″ projection screen, I just can’t go back to a monitor.
    The sense of 3D depth and volume is just not as compelling on a monitor, nor do out of screen effects really work on a monitor either for me.
    The other thing I love about DLP is that since it is all digital there is really no crosstalk at all… only Sammy and Panasonic plasma come close to this from my testing, but those of course are limited to the 24 fps,or eek gad 720p, so pretty much sucks for gaming.
