Dolby Demos the Best No-Glasses 3D Yet — But Is It Good Enough?

Post by metalqueen »

If you're still thinking about buying a 3D TV in order to keep your home-theater experience up to date, don't bother. Rather, don't bother just yet — Cameron-Pace Group (CPG) joined a technology partnership with Dolby and Philips at NAB that's meant to pave the way for glasses-free stereo 3D in the home.

I don't get this....

We can buy an existing, inexpensive passive TV with EXCELLENT 3D capabilities and lightweight, cheap glasses and have a great home 3D experience.

OR... an expensive but mind-blowingly good UltraHD passive 3D TV with EXCELLENT 3D capabilities and lightweight, cheap glasses and have a world-class home 3D experience.

-- BUT INSTEAD --

We should wait for autostereo TVs? Technology that is fundamentally a science project and has failed every freaking time in production to materialize. Wait for 8K screens to laminate lenticular filters on? Wait for view-synthesis to be able to violate the laws of physics and generate the missing occlusions out of thin air?

I agree.
No need to wear glasses is attractive but it's not free. Imo autostereoscopic solutions will probably always have more caveats than glasses solutions.
Either true stereoscopy but with fixed viewing positions or 2d+depth multiview without fixed viewing positions BUT with the caveats of less resolution for not talking about the inferior fake-3d...
