Test Stereo 3D Video Shot with LG Optimus 3D with Firmware V21b

January 11th, 2012 · 4 Comments · 3D Movies & Videos

Here is a short 3D video showing RC cars doing snow jumps, recorded with the LG Optimus 3D smartphone after applying the latest firmware update (V21b), the one that doubles the recording bitrate from 6 Mbps to 12 Mbps in stereo 3D mode. After the update the device still records in Side by Side format with 720p half horizontal resolution (squashed). You can download the original clip (not the modified from YouTube version) from the link below if you wish to get better idea about the full quality of the 3D video recording after the latest update for LG Optimus 3D. You can notice a bit more crosstalk/ghosting due to the highly contrasting moving darker objects (RC cars) over the white snow, also the automatic white balance is not perfect and the snow tint changes from bluish to reddish while panning the device.

LG With New More Stylish Passive Cinema 3D TV Glasses for 2012

December 28th, 2011 · No Comments · General 3D News

LG Electronics its newest collection of 3D glasses, including a pair designed by the eyewear designer Alain Mikli, that will be introduced in the first quarter of 2012. The new line of passive 3D glasses will offer more stylish looking products – the F310, the clip-on F320 and the Alain Mikli F360 – are lighter and more comfortable to wear on one hand, and on the other the new design also offers features such as curved lenses and clean frame structure. So it seems that LG is apparently starting to move the focus from offering only cheaper passive 3D glasses, to offering affordable and good looking 3D glasses for its range of Cinema 3D TV passive 3D-capable television sets . Because the currently available range of passive 3D glasses that LG offers are not only cheap in terms of price, but also look cheap in terms of design and production and are not very sturdy and durable. Of course the new line of better-looking passive 3D glasses introduced should not be much more expensive than what the company already offers on the market, although prices have not yet been revealed…

The new LG F310 passive 3D glasses are characterized by a distinctive design that combines soft lines within a slim frame. Unlike many previous 3D glasses, the lenses have been curved to better accommodate the shape of the user’s face, as well as to improve the overall 3D viewing experience. The F310 glasses’ weight about 13.5 grams, making it about 20 percent lighter than LG’s previous design. The new LG F320 will be clip-on 3D glasses that are going to be even lighter at a weight of just about 5.5 grams, but these are of course designed to be worn over a pair of prescription glasses, so they need to be lighter. And the third new model has been developed in collaboration with Alain Mikli, the LG F360’s half-rim frame design is sportier and has a weight of only 16 grams. The lenses of the LG F360 passive 3D glasses have been curved and cover most of the user’s face, for a deeper immersion and better stereoscopic 3D experience. Besides being compatible with the Cinema 3D TV range of 3D-capable TV sets from LG, the new passive 3D glasses are also compatible with some 3D movie theaters that use RealD projection technology, as well as other compatible passive 3D displays.
