The 3D technology company recently demoed a new glasses-free Ultra HD TV.
Rembrandt 3D has announced its latest innovation in 3D displays -- a 55" 4K LCD with glasses-free 3D. The new set debuted during a special event held at the American Institute of Architects. In order to show off the TV's capabilities, the company demoed a special film, Frank Lloyd Wright's "Fallingwater in 3D."
"Fallingwater in 3D" is a proof of concept pilot developed with the help of Emmy winner Ken Love. Using images of the famous 1935 house designed by Frank Lloyd Wright, the film aims to show off Rembrandt's "Maestro" depth quality. Speaking about the project, Ken Love said, "The translation of Fallingwater as a 3 dimensional work of Art into a stereoscopic 3D image on a glasses free AS3D screen required a balancing of art and science to accurately capture the site's beauty and realism. I was amazed by the power of the 3D images conveyed by the Rembrandt 3D Maestro ™ 4K AS3D TV. The results were simply astounding."
Rembrandt 3D CEO Steve Blumenthal elaborated, "With the introduction of the R3D 4K AS3D TV, we have arrived at a critical performance milestone. We can now say that the R3D Perfect Picture, Maestro™, with its unique image quality and user comfort control system, has been successfully market tested and is now, 'Ready for Prime Time.'"
Pricing and availability for Rembrandt's new 55-inch 4K glasses-free TV have not been detailed. And while it's unclear if the set will be geared toward commercial or consumer use, Blumenthal did conclude the press release by stating, "Rembrandt 3D No glasses 3DTV has arrived, and its ground breaking advancements provide a natural, artifact free 3D experience second to none, and finally its coming soon to a 'home' near you."
