Toshiba turns back on OLED production

It wasn't long ago when display enthusiasts got excited over OLED news, a few demos here and there and just the news of it "will be out in a few years".

 

news/1/7/17007_40.jpg

 

Well, Toshiba has slapped that in the face - they have decided to cut OLD plans, the decision was based on a surge in demands for LCD's this year, another contributing factor was the recent financial crisis hurting the earnings for Toshiba.

 

Toshiba's subsidiary company, Toshiba Mobile Display Corp partnered with Panasonic had invested $190 million in 2008 to set up a production line for OLED at a factory in Ishikawa prefecture. Their plan was to produce 1.5 million OLED screens for smartphones per year - but obviously this won't be happening now.

 

All staff involved with the now cancelled production and R&D of OLED will be transferred to the LCD panel division - this is a great move, at least the staff aren't just being laid off. The company will now focus on OLED-related R&D for lighting equipment only.

 

Toshiba to tease with glasses-less 3D TV

Toshiba are set to show off a 3D TV on Monday that doesn't require 3D glasses.

 

news/1/6/16933_10.jpg

 

3D TV's have been out for less than a year from the big manufacturers, all of them require the user/s to wear special glasses to see the 3D content. At the moment the technology involved in the glasses are presented with similar images, then rapidly change between each eye - this is how the 3D effect is shown to your eyes, but because it's going so fast - you don't notice the flicker, you just enjoy the 3D effect, albeit - with glasses on.

 

Toshiba's new technology throws the glasses away. Exact details of the technology won't be unveiled until Monday - but research by other companies has relied on a filter being placed on top of the TV screen - this filter sends a slightly different image to each eye.

Panasonic and Charlotte Motor Speedway to install world's largest HD video board

If you watch football games on TV, you have undoubtedly seen the huge video walls that many of the stadiums in pro and college football have giant screens that help fans in the stadium get closer to the action even if they are in the nosebleed section. NASCAR and racing fans that visit Charlotte Motor Speedway will be to see the world's largest HD video wall built by Panasonic.

The screen is set to start construction on October 13 and the schedule will have the screen finished by April of 2011. The gigantic screen will sit trackside between turns two and three. The size of the enormous screen is hard to fathom. It will have a total of 16,000 square feet of space. That is the size of some grocery stores.

BenQ announces 23.6" 120hz 3d-capable monitor

BenQ have just announced the XL2410T - their first 120Hz, 3D-capable LCD monitor which uses an LED backlight. This means it's compatible with NVIDIA's 3D Vision technology, and for those of you (like me) who enjoy the fast refresh of 120Hz.

 

news/1/6/16825_20.jpg

 

The screen sports a 23.6" panel at Full HD 1920x1080, 16:9 aspect ratio, 2ms GTG (grey-to-grey) response time, meaning that the OverDrive technology is being used to achieve a faster pixel response than all other 3D-capable monitors (interesting!)

 

BenQ also claims it has a 10, 000, 000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio.

 

Interestingly BenQ partnered with ZOWIE, a professional gaming gear manufacturer, ZOWIE's gamer team joined in during the production development and testing stages. With their assistance, the XL2410T apparently has been designed to offer the best experience for gamers. Especially with FPS titles, reducing input lag.

 

Brother shows off crazy AirScouter glasses that shine images directly on the retina

Video goggles and glasses have been on the market for years now and universally they all have a few things in common. They all block your vision completely for anything going on around you and they all look really silly when you wear them. Brother is more known for printers than anything else, but the company has pulled the wraps off an interesting new product called the AirScouter.

 

news/1/6/16788_4.jpg

 

Brother apparently leveraged tech it owns in the printer business to design the AirScouter unit. The device is a projector that is connected to a plain looking pair of clear glasses. Rather than having tiny LCDs like most video glasses today, that little projector shines images directly on the retina of the eye. That sounds very strange to me.

Dell UltraSharp U3011 30-inch LCD now shipping

Dell has been shipping 30-inch LCDs for years now and I have been using one of the original 30-inch units and wouldn't give it up for anything. The new LCD is an improvement on the original LCD with a lot of nice new features and a big price tag. This may be the best LCD for gamers looking to play with high resolutions.

The screen has a 16:10 aspect ratio and uses IPS technology. The resolution for the LCD is 2560 x 1600 and it has a 1000:1 typical contrast ratio. The dynamic contrast ratio for the screen is 100,000:1 and the screen can display 1.07 billion colors, which is way more than my original 30-inch LCD can handle. The screen has a 7ms response time so ghosting should not be an issue.
