Toshiba will commercialize a home TV that allows the viewer to enjoy 3D image without special glasses. The company will put the product on the market within the year if all goes smoothly. At the same time, it will also launch a liquid crystal TV that needs special glasses in the year-end shopping season to satisfy demands from various customers and activate the 3D TV market. Toshiba successfully developed a new 21-inch liquid crystal panel that allows the viewer to enjoy 3D image in alliance with its subsidiary, and apply this newly-developed panel to home TV. The new liquid crystal panel employed the Toshiba’s original technology of integral imaging. It displays image in accordance with the angle on the sheet that aligns semicircular special lenses to allow for stereoscopical view with the necked eyes. Neither price nor specifications are set at present.
