Panasonic Previews 3D Projection System

As a response to rising demand for 3D content and growing opportunities for 3D programming in commercial and public sector markets like education and the military – as well as entertainment venues like sports bars – Panasonic is currently developing a 3D Projection System, scheduled to launch in Summer, 2011.

The offering, PT-DJ3D53, consists of two PT-DW530U DLP projectors, a dual-projector stacking frame, a pair of circular polarizers, 100 pairs of circularly-polarized glasses, 133” diagonal silver screen, as well as additional components needed to setup the system. How does it work?

The Panasonic 3D Projection System relies on the two PT-DW530U projectors to transmit video to the screen and deliver a unique perspective for a specific eye. Each projector lens is attached to its own polarized filter. The viewer needs to wear glasses, which do not contain any electronic parts and use passive polarized filters. The value of passive systems is that facility owners and managers do not need to worry about the loss or theft of glasses, which are cost-effective and readily available in the market today.
