AUO to Debut a 71 Inch CinemaScope TV

Also on the way from the company, a 65 inch glasses-free 3D set

The folks over at AUO have two new sets to show off at the FPD International conference that's being held in Japan this weekend. Both are impressive, and both are huge.

The first is a CinemaScope TV, meaning it's got an aspect ratio of 21:9, instead of the 16:9 of traditional widescreen sets. It may not be the best when it comes to watching standard definition television, but if you're a movie buff you'll find plenty to love from this massive set.

AUO's second big debut will be a 65 inch 3D set that uses lenticular lens technology to allow for what the company calls "naked eye" viewing. If that's not enough for you, the set also boasts a 4K2K resolution.

There's no word, of course, on when we'll be seeing sets like these make their way into the marketplace, but if that naked eye 3D set works out, you can bet other manufacturers will be jumping on that bandwagon as soon as possible.
