Mitsubishi has revealed a new Blu-ray player that can convert existing 2D movies into 3D in real time.
The company showed off the technology to a few tech journalists at the Barclays? PGA Tour at Westchester Country Club, and plans to market the product to consumers in early 2008.
To experience 3D movies with the Blu-ray converter, viewers wear standard VR interface shutter glasses.
Shutter Glasses are a type of immersive display that works in tune with a specially configured monitor or projector. The monitor refreshes its display at a pre-set exact rate, preferably higher than normal. The shutter glasses then close the shutters on each eye alternatively such that each eye catches every other refresh from the monitor or projector. The result is the illusion of 3D display.
However the shutters effectively halve the display update causing eye strain and muscle fatigue over extended usage on normal systems. The strain can be removed by increasing the refresh rate to 120hz or more.
Mitsubishi?s conversion works with a combination of the glasses and a standard Digital Light Processing (DLP) projector. The projector divides a typical 120 Hz DLP TV output into two 60 Hz signals to create the 3D effect.
