LG Takes 3D to School - Literally

Posted Tue Jun 15, 2010 at 11:00 AM PDT by Dick Ward

LG's new passive 3D displays and projectors are aimed at businesses and schools.

"Beyond the living room," says Dr. Nandhu Nandhakumar, the senior vice president of advanced technology at LF, "the immersive experience of 3D video will help transform commercial display applications in the years ahead."

Advances in technology are fun, but in the long run there's usually some sort of practical application too. So while the main focus of 3D is on entertainment, LG is looking towards education, or possibly edutainment. "As businesses explore how to leverage this technology to engage consumers and drive business, LG is creating products with the versatility to entertain and educate."

Among the new commercial displays on the way from LG is the CF3D – a single lens 3D projector. It boasts 2,500 ANSI-lumens and a 7,000:1 contrast ratio. It's got calibration technologies to help with that whole 3D thing and even TruMotion 120Hz, which is normally only seen on televisions.
