Is it Worth Investing in 3D TV Now

Before discussing this issue, it is important for one to have an understanding of what is actually the 3D TV we are talking about now.

The short answer is that 3D television is a display technology that enables viewers in the home to experience TV programs, movies and video games in what is referred to as a stereoscopic effect. It relies on the use of stereopsis or separation, to add the illusion of a third dimension to an otherwise two-dimensional flat image.

This illusion is created by simultaneously displaying two separate full-size but slightly different images of the same scene – one for the left eye and the other for the right eye. The differences in the two images are intended to mimic in very simple terms, the way the human vision system sees an object. The distance separating the eyes of a human being – referred to as interpupillary distance – helps the eyes see objects from a slightly different angle, leading to two slightly but distinct images. The brain processes these differences to generate among others, relative depth information to create the 3-dimensional image.

However, the way 3D TV generates a 3D image is not exactly in line with the way we see an object in space in that while 3D TV relies on image separation only, human vision uses both image separation and eye focusing cues to determine image depth. For many, this is not much of an issue in that image separation is often sufficient for the brain to determine relative image depth. However, this difference leads to a number of undesirable effects with 3D TV such as disorientation and in some cases, even headaches.

What is different from the 3D we have seen in the recent past is that now we are talking about a 3D experience that can support a 1080p HD image for each eye. Up to now, this was not possible.

Challenges of 3D in the Home

PNE8000-3D._V134297731_

Well, 3D TV in the home has become a reality but… we believe that 3D Television still has to overcome a few serious issues before it will become a true mainstream technology in home entertainment.

In other words, it will still take a few more years for 3D TV technology to become the mainstream TV technology in the home.

Technology is still very expensive to be affordable by the average family. Suffice to say that at the present prices, a typical 3D HDTV and two pairs of 3D-glasses – (3D glasses are necessary for the displayed image by a 3D TV set to appear as a 3D illusion) cost some $1,000 more than a 2D equivalent HDTV. And two sets of glasses are the bare minimum; you a pair of 3D glasses for each member of the family viewing 3D TV content.

3D glasses – 3D TV’s necessary evil: We mentioned the 3D glasses. The issue with the glasses does not stop at their expensive price tag (circa $150 per pair). The added inconvenience brought about by the necessary 3D glasses is definitely something that not even TV makers know if the end consumer would eventually accept. You see, wearing a pair of 3D glasses for an extended period to watch one of the latest Blu ray movies in 3D is an acceptable compromise. But to enjoy all your TV viewing with a rather over sized 3D glasses is another matter.

ES6800-main-800_thumb800

3D experience in the home is different from that enjoyed at the movie theater. While there is no doubt that the 3D TV experience in the home is definitely pleasing, yet it is less immersive and impressive than in the movie theater.

3D Content: True 3D TV content is a scarce resource and no matter what the movie and entertainment industry will be doing in this respect, it will remain so for a number of years to come in comparison to what you have in 2D. It is true that some 3D HDTVs come with a 2D-to-3D converter but this would be like the vague virtual surround you get from an old stereo recording.

Upgrade Reluctance: Many have just upgraded from their tube TV to a flat panel TV; some have even got a step further and purchased their second LCD or plasma TV. These are still enjoying their ‘new’ HDTV purchase and I do not think that they will be the once to upgrade to the latest 3D TV technology – at least for now and at the present pricing.

Full HD TVs Buying Options

samsung tv

A frequent subject in the world of television is ‘full high definition TV’. Full HD TV’s prominence is dues to the changeover from analogue to digital television on 12/06/09. With this switch now done, high definition television is available to everyone, so all you need now is a HD Television.

Analogue television resolution is 640 x 480i – how does HD television differ from this? The most significant aspect is that the resolution is much greater. Standard high definition TV or HD ready TV (as is frequently used), has a resolution of 720p or 720i. Full HD TV has the best resolution of 1080p or 1080i.

UE32H6400AKXXU-72615-0

What is the significance of the ‘p’ and ‘i’ used with 1080? The letters are abbreviations of progressive or interlaced scanning. This is basically the way that the picture is refreshed on the display. Interlaced refreshes alternate lines for every frame and progressive refreshes every line on every frame. For this reason 1080p is the more desirable form of scanning because it results in a smoother clearer picture.

It doesn’t mean that 1080p are essential for every situation however. 1080p can only really be noticeably appreciated on larger sets. For that reason you will still see smaller standard definition (or HD ready) televisions for sale, as they are perfectly suitable for use where a smaller screen size is required. However when purchasing a larger screen, like a 42 inch TV then to get the best HD experience possible the 1080p full HD TV is the way to go.

A decision you have to make when purchasing a new television is what type of HD technology do you want? There are three to choose from – Full HD plasma, Full HD LCD TV and it’s close cousin the LED TV.

Full HD Plasma TVs have been considered top of the range with regards to picture quality, however this is reflected in the price. Plasmas enjoyed this reputation due to their superior colour reproduction, contrast levels, and refresh rates which result in the best picture quality. However they are bigger and heavier, consume more power and are more expensive.

The people’s choice up to now has been the full HD LCD TV. A few years ago LCD televisions were some way behind plasmas. But because of the popularity of LCDs and technological advances in this technology the gap has been closed and LCDs are almost equal to plasmas but at a better price.

This is reflected by the fact that some manufacturers have plans to shelve the production of plasma TVs. Also contributing to this decision is that there are new technologies on the horizon which will eclipse plasmas.

samsung tv

One of the new breed of televisions which is already making an appearance in our stores is the LED TV. The name used for this type of TV could be considered a bit misleading, because and LED TV is still an LCD TV which just employs LED technology as it’s lighting source.

LED TVs do however have some improvements over conventional LCD displays. They can be made slimmer, have better colour reproduction, better contrast ratios, have better energy efficiency and have longer life-spans. They are however still new on the market and as always new technology comes at a price.

3D TV Review Shootout 2010 Samsung vs. Panasonic

I’ve been reviewing flat screen TVs and specifically plasma TVs since year 2000 when they first entered the market. In fact we performed the first ever plasma display review of a Sony plasma (then one of the first made). Back then 95% were used in the commercial display market for board rooms and computer display needs, some were for stores, others for government use. 

A lot has changed. LCD TVs much through propaganda campaigns from Sharp and other LCD TV manufacturers managed to keep fear feeding through the market place about some plasma TV inherent weaknesses – namely burn in, and longevity problems, and the occasional pixel failure problem. These problems were of course, remedied. But the stigma remained and LCD TVs kept taking market share – even with then inherently better picture quality from plasma.

3D TV represents a new possibility for plasma TV technology since the technology displays true 1080p HD to both eyes when displaying 3D TV content. Could 3D TV be a breath of life for old plasma TV? Maybe and only if plasma TV manufacturers decide to make a point of it…

Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs on the Panasonic TC-P50VT25.

3D TV Viewing: It was difficult to discern between the Samsung and Panasonic when viewing 3D Content. Whether this is because we haven’t reviewed much 3D TV material or whether it is due to a very close picture between the two we are unsure. We noticed the flash from the glasses from both TVs when surrounding room light was present. I felt that I noticed more natural color information on the Samsung just as with other non-3D TV viewed content. I also believed that I noticed more out of focus picture elements near the left and right edges of the screen on the Panasonic. Whether any of that is actual or perceived, it’s hard to say. I’m rather used to picking out defects in non-3D TV content after 12 years of doing so. I have my test discs to back up my thoughts as well. It’s more difficult with brand new content and a new format with no test material. I will say that I felt both TVs showed a very satisfactory, detailed and 3 dimensional image. Who gets the nod? This goes to the Samsung PN50C8000 only because of the perceived out of focus edges recurrent on the Panasonic. The competition was close. Both sets of glasses worked equally as well. Both TVs pulled me further into the 3D content.

Notes on the Viewing Experience: Good ole’ Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs – one of the only testable 3D content sources available at present.It took us about 20 minutes to get used to wearing the 3D glasses. For one reviewer that wears prescription glasses it took longer and was never really comfortable. In the negative category, we experienced flashing from the glasses when there was room or ambient light present with both the Samsung and Panasonic. This was apparently caused by the ambient light interfering with the infrared receiver on the glasses.

Turning your head away from the TV can also cuase the glasses to shut off and turn back on again when you look back to the TV. Without other light sources in the room we didn’t experience the issue. I also found that keeping my head still during viewing helped the viewing experience. Overall, after I got used to it, I enjoyed the experience and the movie (Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs).The big question: Did the 3D movie, TV, and glasses enhance the experience? For me the answer is yes, it did, I felt that it enveloped me in the movie more. 3D TV is all about making the viewer feel more involved in the content and I would agree that it succeeded in that. On a critical note about the Panasonic VT25 I felt the edges were distractingly out of focus at times, in comparison to the Samsung which we were also reviewing.

Processor Testing: Testing with both 480i and 1080p signals resulted in very satisfactory scores for the Samsung plasma. The TV displayed very smooth transitions in the car racing stadium seating tests while eliminating the moire’ patterns quickly. There was also little to no annoying background motion artifacts with either signal. The judder reduction feature on the C8000 works well and reduced side to side panning judder effectively.

We were very disappointed with the Panasonic VT25 chipset. There was significant background motion artifacts and noise as well as significant judder jerky effects with objects moving side to side.

Advantage: Samsung PN50C8000

Calibration: The Samsung C8000 trumped the Panasonic VT25 in color accuracy during calibration – zeroing in on D6500K nearly perfectly. The Samsung also allows calibration adjustment of all six colors including Cyan, Magenta, and Yellow while the Panasonic allows only primary red, green, blue. Due to the Panasonic’s intense brightness and color saturation issues, it was much more difficult to calibrate and balance color.

Advantage: Samsung PN50C8000

The same shot on the Panasonic TC-P50VT25 shows over saturation of color information

HD and Standard Definition Picture Quality: With both HD sources and standard definition content the Panasonic VT25 produced a very vibrant, colorful, vivid image even after being toned down during our calibration. The picture frequently tends toward over saturation of color information. Processing testing and content revealed motion artifacts and background noise as well as some flicker. 

The Samsung PN50C8000 displays wonderfully balanced color information and uniformity. Images are presented in a clean and clear manner devoid of artifacts, with colors properly saturated. Colors may seem a little washed out and weak at first but further viewing reveals them to be accurate and realistic. This was the case with both up converted standard definition material and HD content.

Advantage: Samsung PN50C8000

Contrast Ratio Measurement: The Panasonic TC-P50VT25 measured 2239:1 post calibration contrast ratio when the panel light was on high. The Samsung plasma registered 1716:1.

Advantage: Panasonic TC-P50VT25

Features Options and Performance

Audio Quality: The two TVs had similar quality in audio with volume levels about the same despite the 3 X 10W speakers in the Panasonic compared to the 2 X 10W speakers in the Samsung. We felt the Samsung’s overall sound quality was more balanced and voice/dialog performed better due to the Clear Voice feature. The VT25 did not have a voice enhancement feature. We felt music sounded better on the Panasonic no doubt due to the extra speaker.Advantage: Even

The VT25 comes with one pair of 3D glasses included while the C8000 does not. Both sets of glasses worked well and will fit over normal glasses (though maybe unconfortably).

3D TV Glasses: The Samsung 3D shutter glasses look more like a normal pair of sunglasses which I like. They are also rechargeable through a USB port on the TV or computer. The Panasonic 3D glasses performed just as well but are not rechargeable and also cost more. Both pairs emit flashing when surrounding light is present and certain obscure conditions collide. The Samsung glasses cost $50 less.

Advantage: Samsung PN50C8000

Internet Options: The Samsung PN50C8000 Internet suite is more complete with Netflix, Blockbuster, twitter, facebook, USA Today, Napster, Yahoo and more. Panasonic’s options were just a little too limited at present though they are adding twitter and Fox Sports soon. The VT25 currently does not offer Netflix, facebook, or several other options. One highlight over the Samsung is Skype compatibility.

Advantage: Samsung PN50C8000

Design and Appearance: Panasonic decided not to play ball in the aesthetics category presenting yesteryear’s black gloss wide 2.25″ bezel framing, 3.5 inch depth and a not so attractive dark teal green screen that contrasts poorly with the black frame. At least the stand is a new oval shape and swivels side to side 17 degrees.The Samsung PN50C8000 by contrast is a beautiful TV with less than a 2″ frame and with many design elements including a clear neck on the chrome swiveling table top stand, a matte dark charcoal metallic finish on the bezel frame, sleek 1.4″ depth, and a dark black/purple screen.

Advantage: Samsung PN50C8000

Remote Control and Menu Functionality: The Samsung was again the clear winner with a superior menu system with more options, and a far nicer remote control

The Samsung PN50C8000 Remote control is super while the Panasonic remote feels cheap)

Advantage: Samsung PN50C8000

Value/Price Considerations

Both TVs sell for around $2500. I would definitely try to get the 3D glasses and 3D Blu Ray included in a package as this will make a big difference. The Panasonic TC-P50VT25 did come with a pair of glasses in the box while the Samsung did not.Advantage: EvenOverall Scoring
* The lopsided scoring on this challenge review does not mean that we think the Panasonic VT25 series is a poor performer. In fact, many people with brighter room environments may prefer the exceptionally bright colors from the Panasonic. The TC-P50VT25 scored a cumulative overall rating of 90.6 in our review of the model.

Is The BlackBerry Torch Comparable To The IPhone 4?

IPHONE4

Apple’s iPhone is one of the extremely rare products (and a great success at that) which
virtually sells itself. The term ‘iPhone’ has practically become a household word. Challengers, especially Android-based phones, have waged war with it, but haven’t come close to capturing even half of the iPhone’s customer base. Blackberry is now betting its cards against Apple. But the big question that everyone wants an answer to is: will the Blackberry Torch really burn a hole in Apple’s deep pockets, or will it be another product that’ll succumb to the behemoth?

But before we begin to pit these two phones against each other, let’s look briefly at the all-new Blackberry Torch and Blackberry Torch accessories. The Blackberry Torch 9800 is a brand new ‘slider’ phone and a concept co-developed by RIM. It features the much-anticipated BlackBerry 6 operating system, an upgraded web-browser that supports tabbed-browsing–and sports a plethora of other goodies. A 4GB memory car, 5.0 MP camera and video recording, integrated GPS-ready, Wi-Fi/Bluetooth-readiness, and 3G connectivity all come standard. The G2 is a complete phone, which includes both a QWERTY keyboard a touchscreen, as well as the Blackberry trackpad.

The iPhone 4′s display, as well as high-def camera, is hands-down better. Sporting a 640 X 960 pixel resolution, The Blackberry Torch’s 360 X 480 resolution just seems meager. That’s not to say that the Torch isn’t good; it’s still better-than average in resolution. Apple, with its mastery of the capacitive touch screen and Retina screen, outshines the Torch, though. The Blackberry Torch shoots great 5 MP photos and decent video, but again, the iPhone 4 is better by almost all critics’ judgments. Breaking Apple’s mastery of display crispness and high-definition photo capability is a feat that, so far, no carrier on the market can quite match. People would declare the iPhone a definite winner just by taking a glace at the phone’s specs. Not so. The Torch features a 624MHz chip and the iPhone–a 1GHz. On the flip-side, the BlackBerry Torch has full multitasking capability, opposed to the iPhone, which only supports partial multi-tasking. In real-life tests, the results are still close–but the Blackberry comes out the victor when it comes down to the nitty-gritty. Also, the number of applications and features is the main selling point to many customers. Thus, both phones have access to the best browser resource currently available–Webkit. What’s different is that the Blackberry Torch’s set of apps and available apps tend to be more for business and aren’t nearly as plentiful as the other phone. The iPhone 4′s seemingly never-ending superstore of applications–many of them free–shames the Torch’s. Expect Blackberry,though, to start offering more apps in the future. But Apple is thus the clear victor in applications.

While some claim the Torch’s interface is superior–many others stay loyal to Apple’s side of the field. Essentially, Apple’s iOS 4 O/S is fairly simpler, easier to navigate and use. The Torch has just as many features–like PUSH and Exchange support/universal mailbox–as the iPhone, but comes up a little short in the usability department. Apple seems to have the advantage in this case. The BlackBerry has the physical keyboard working in its advantage, though. Many would agree that nothing would be more satisfying that the feel of a physical keyboard. Here, the Blackberry Torch wins with its slide-out QWERTY keyboard and the iPhone loses. Finally, both the iPhone and Blackberry Torch come with high-capacity batteries, and both last (according to several published studies) roughly the same duration. This will undoubtedly make iPhone junkies happy, due to the previous 3G/3GS’s notoriety for mediocre battery life. The Blackberry ships with a 4GB SD card, and it’s expandable to 32GB. It also has 4 gigs of internal flash memory, bringing the total to 8 GB. Apparently, the folks at Apple don’t like the idea of having a SD card slot, so there is none (much to the chagrin of many Apple users). However, Apple users still have a choice between the 16 and 32 GB internal memory.

However, there is no lack of Blackberry Torch Accessories, chargers and cases. Some of the ‘cooler’ items include: a mobile printer from Polaroid (that prints photo directly from the phone unto the small, mobile printer), a sun visor-mounted text-to-speech speakerphone, and even a device that transforms the phone into a universal TV remote! The online Blackberry store also carries a wealth of Blackberry Torch cases and ac/dc chargers. The cases come in portfolio-style, holster, pouch/pocket-style. And of course they have home chargers and car chargers, all at various prices and in various styles. Accessories that come included are: a 4GB SD CARD, 1270 mAh cryptographic lithium battery, wall charger, manual, Blackberry software, quick start guide, data-sync USB cable, stereo headphones, and Blackberry software.

Despite the fact that the iPhone four is a mobile phone that is not all that it is great for. You will discover that you almost certainly are going to utilize your iphone for a lot of other things such as photos, games, and of course tunes and movies to increase the general experience of owning the product. Nonetheless, you may find yourself a little stumped on how to use the many capabilities that can be found. Transferring tunes and videos is a very simple procedure that you will absolutely find yourself using regularly.
