I have a question about the new Sammy LED LCD shown at CES. For sets that support 2D to 3D processing, do they require 3D glasses? I ask because I attended CES and while passing through the Sammy display area, a 40-46 inch display (guess) caught my eye because not only it generally looked spectacular, it presented a 3D look without glasses. Further, though the source was bluray (a demo that looped between several popular movie scenes every 10 seconds or so), the material also looked like HD video as opposed to film-very lifelike! This was not my opinion alone. My brother was with me and he noted the same qualities without input from me. Because the display was being used as wall decoration there was no information of any kind on the set or bluray player feeding it. I asked several "reps" for more information, but ironically (and sadly) they knew nothing about the combination.
One rep assured me that the player and display were not using any special processing and that may have been the case. But since this individual also didn't know the model of the display or player either who knows if she was correct about the processing? I followed up with another rep later in the day who appeared to be more knowledgeable and he thought it was from Samsung's new 7000 series of LED-LCD display.
So assuming it was a 7000 series set, is Sammy's 2D to 3D processing designed to simulate 3D without glasses? It certainly appeared that way to me with the difference (vs. glasses) being that the effect started at the plane of the display's glass and projected backwards.
My brother and I have been die-hard plasma fans to date, and I was planning on buying a 65" plasma later this year but after seeing that Sammy LCD at CES, we are both reconcidering LED LCD.
Thanks in advance for any feedback.
