Entertainment to the Next Level: Samsung 3D TV

It’s an all new product in the entertainment world; this is the Samsung 3DTV! There has that has nothing but glowing words to say about it, that says “we don’t reckon you’ll be sorry you bought this Samsung.”

They even watched Monsters vs. Aliens on the 40C7000 TV, with a BD-C6900 Blu-ray player from Samsung 3D TV. What we can say is that the active LCD shuttered glasses were of the SSG2100AB model, which cost £100 each ($152). While they do point out that have used two different 3DTV sets in order to complete the review as”neither were 100 percent finished in the making), between the two models they “had all the major features to it.”


For anyone out there that is considering a 3DTV, it sounds as though TechRadar had a pretty good experience with it. They found some unpredictable results to it with the frame delay technique and the connections proved rather fiddly, but still it stands up as a great TV that just so happens to be 3d at a premium. I’d be wary buying a 3DTV in the first wave however, as prices will come down and technology will improve—and besides, my personal opinion is that 3DTV just isn’t worth getting het up about anyway.


If ever you had any doubts about that the big thing in televisions this year would be the 3d feature, then the Samsung’s CES press conference would finally convince you to this. The company is throwing its rather large manufacturing weight behind 3D in the home, bringing not just TVs but 3D Blu-ray players and home theater systems into stores this year.


The TV’s were certainly the focus today and consists of LED’s, LCD’s and even a plasma model to it. The star, though, and the one that Jeffrey Katzenberg couldn’t keep his hands off (more on that in a second), was the 9000-series; this 3D TV features a proprietary 3d engine like that of Toshiba’s new sets, its can even convert 2D video into 3D (but Samsung showed this as a temporary solution until more 3D videos are available). The 9000-series will come in screen sizes from 19” to 65”, but that wasn’t why Katzenberg was fingering the thing and gawking at it as the presentation wore on. Just one siple look at the photo can tell you the answer, the TVs arethin, which is without doubt a third of an inch thin. Turn one of these sideways and it all but disappears. Try to add to that gorgeous steel body and you will get a TV that is even an impossibly rich movie mogul would long for!


Better still; the 9000 series will come with a large touch-screen remote. But why waste that second screen when you are not even actually doing any controlling to it? Samsung lets you watch live TV on the remote itself while the big screen continues to play your 3D movie.


Samsung is basically jumping on the App Wagon as well and in the spring there will be a range of free apps and they are not simply called applications anymore. In its own store, it is called ‘Samsung Apps’. The store will be open, so anyone can write software for your TV, and thus the paid content will likely follow in the summer, and even followed by software for other platforms like phones and even other alike to it. A new Samsung 3D TV is certainly something worth giving your time and consideration.

Plans on Becoming A Little Clearer: Sony's 3D TV

Sony basically expects that 3D televisions will make up on 30 percent and 50 percent of all sets it sells in the financial year that starts in April 2012, one senior executive said late last week. The goal further indicates Sony’s confidence in 3D entertainment ahead of a roll-out of the technology next year.

Sony basically announced its 3D ambitions in the early September when the president and CEO Howard Stringer informed the company was planning its launch on the 3D capable Bravia TV sets and Blu Ray disc players as well as adding 3D to the PlayStation 3. Sony’s plans for the latter two products are already becoming clear: the Blu-ray Disc Association is working on a 3D disc standard while Sony plans to add 3D to all models of the PlayStation 3 via a firmware update. On the TV side however, perhaps the biggest and most crucial part of the picture, Sony basically had not disclosed many details but now that picture is beginning to come into a focus.


The 3d compatible sets will usually have a small piece of addition to its hardware threat lets the machine show 3d content but they will also work as conventional TV sets, as said by Hiroshi Yoshioka, executive deputy president of Sony and head of the unit that includes its TV business, in an interview. Yoshioka didn’t elaborate on the additional hardware however, but says it would add a little to the production cost of the TV set.


By far, the largest expense for 3D viewing will be the glasses that are needed to give the illusion of a 3d image. Those could cost up to around US$200 and won’t necessarily be bundled with a television. By selling the glasses separately, Sony will be able to keep its 3D compatible sets competitive with others sets while needing a higher outlay from customers that want to get the 3d experience. Yoshioka stressed that Sony has yet to determine the premium for 3D-compatible sets and whether it will bundle the glasses or sell them separately. But basically the TV business is perhaps the most prices sensitive of the entire Sony’s product areas, particularly in the US market. Thus the company will likely cut down the additional costs.


Sony’s TV business has been losing money the recent years, but Stringer committed this month to turning a profit on televisions in the next financial year, which runs from April 2010 to March 2011. Success with 3d will be crucial if Sony is to accomplish its goal of grabbing a 20 percnet share of the LCD TV market in the upcoming years.


Sony’s 3d plans to revolve around gaming, movies and sports as well. Sony is already working on gaming with the PlayStation 3 upgrade plans and its movies division, Sony Pictures, is already producing 3D movies. If history is any indicator, sports is basically an additional area where users are willing to pay a little more money for a great experience. The company’s existing relationship with broadcasters through its movie division and TV production house could serve well when it comes to the promotion of 3d but even it is does not there will be a secondary rout to 3d capable sets. Sony is expanding its PlayStation Network service to cover its televisions and will launch a new content delivery service next year that will pump movies, TV shows and other video content directly into Bravia TVs and Blu-ray Disc players from its own servers. The smaller- scale experiments have already taken place in the US, where Sony recently gave its “Cloudy with a Chance of Meatballs” movie to Internet-linked Bravia TVs even before its DVD release.




Tech Stuff: A Review on Nintendo 3DS

Basically Nintendo 3DS is a new exciting platform that has hardware that somewhat misses the mark. The Nintendo 3DS is not some handheld tool similar to all the older models, it is basically the first iteration of a brand new gaming platform and probably the first ever first gaming device to make use of glasses-free 3d technology of its kind. However can the 3DS live up to the hype, overcome the limitations of glasses-free 3D, and produce a compelling new gameplay experience worthy of its $250 MSRP?

Nintendo 3DS and its hardware


For anyone out there that has made use of DS in the past, Nintendo’s next-generation handheld should look and feel plenty familiar, though obviously with a number of clearly prominent changes to its features. While Nintendo went for a slim, minimalist design with the DSi that utilized flat surfaces, unified casing, and a solid color, the 3DS is bulkier with more angular edges and a more complex, multi-panel case design. Basically they have added new feature to its design to make some additions to its functions.


So in order to make accommodation of the dual parallax glasses-free 3D screens and those two outward facing cameras, the 3DS’s top panel is somewhat thicker, while the basic one is somewhat roughly the same to the thickness as the DSi. Though thicker overall, the 3DS is not as wide as the DSi, shaving off roughly a tenth of an inch from the width of the base. The size reduction is lost at some degree considering that it has the screen’s muffin top life design that is prominent over its sides. When paired with the added thickness of the unit, the odd angular screen casing definitely impacts the overall portability of the device and how it can be handy enough for the user.

Though the DS series has never actually been particularly easy to the pocket size, the 3DS is one of the more cumbersome and uncomfortable, with its edges often getting caught on fabric and the device pressing firmly against your leg. But still, the 3DS is quite more likely to be carried in hand or inside the bag of its owner, and the design somewhat becomes a secondary issue. So if ever you are one fan of DS that looks unto the physical structure of the product, then there are some points to it that you can consider before deciding on your purchase.

As for the quality of its overall build, the 3DS’s plastic casing is on-par with the previous versions of Nintendo handhelds, thought the high gloss two tones metallic finish to it gives a little extra aesthetic flair to its overall look. Despite its appearance, the device is still somewhat vulnerable in so many ways of the same regards as the previous generations. As is the case with any clamshell design, the screen hinge is the weakest point, but the 3DS’s feels pretty solid and pops into a slightly angled or flat position. Users may even see the resistance loosening over time, but should hold up with much proper care and storage of the product.

So basically the 3DS also makes use of new slider control for more volume and 3d depths adjustments to the system. Another feature to it is the enabling or disabling of the Wi-Fi which are quite effective for quick adjustments of the user but a little too loose and somewhat easy to move with some accidental brush of the finger. So if ever you are planning to purchase one of these, try to make certain that you know what you want in this product.



A TV Review: Samsung LED 7000 3D

For anyone of you who is waiting, here’s a share on the first glimpse of Samsung’s range of 3D-enabled TVs back in January at CES 2010, and now they have made way from the halls of the halls of the Las Vegas Convention Center and unto the shelves of your very own local electronics store. So here’s an opportunity on checking out the brand-new Samsung LED 7000 3D, one of the company’s most affordable 3D-capable displays; and for you to know if it is an ideal solution for consumers in joining the 3d revolution. So find it out now, and here the article to get you started. After all, it pays to get a thorough idea on the things you plan on purchasing.

To start with, you’ll first need a thorough idea; basically the Samsung LED 7000 3D is one sleek and sexy looking 3D TV. It is a slim panel design that measures only 1-inch thick and weighs less than 50 lbs. Screen sizes are available in 40-inch, 46-inch, and 55-inch variations, which sport MSRPs of $1,999.99, $2,599.99, and $3,299.99, respectively.


So when it comes to features, all of the screen sizes have the same primary features, and these would include the following:


  • Has 240Hz Screen Refresh Rate
  • A DLNA Support
  • Comes with Full 1080p HD Resolution
  • 6,000,000:1 Dynamic Contrast Ratio
  • Has 4 HDMI Inputs
  • Internet-enabled Apps, including Netflix, Facebook, Hulu Plus, and Flickr.
  • 1 Component Video Input


Every display is an LED-edgelit LCD which bacially gives a much brighter, a more vibrant picture than what a standard LCD could give. Colors on the UNC7000 are rich and the high contrast ratio provides a diverse range of shades for great gaming, HD television, and Blu-ray experiences.  The LED 7000 series, like most Samsung displays, have a more saturated visual presentation than other makes and models. While this bring forth jaw dropping results when it comes to visuals, the picture is not always entirely true to life, this means that the fleshtones and other elements can somewhat seem augmented in a manner.


Otherwise, the picture comes top notch. The LED 7000 features a high refresh rate of 240Hz, which is intended to produce smooth visuals during films, television, and games with high motion. If you like the smoothness and the optimum entertainment experience then this is surely something you need to consider; considering how the LED 7000 can bring forth much liveliness to the entertainment experience.

In fact, high refresh rates like these make videos seem sped up and somewhat unnatural. Luckily, users can define their preferred refresh rate, and ultimately, the only time they will need to access the higher refresh rates will be for 3D content.


But as for the display’s 3d capabilities, the LED 7000 is seen as 3D ready, which means all you need to buy is a pair of compatible 3d glasses and you are then ready to get that 3d entertainment. Compatible Samsung 3D glasses cost $149.99 and $199.99 – the latter of which are rechargeable, whereas the former are battery operated.

The glasses are without doubt expensive and buying enough pairs in accommodating your friends or a small family can surely drive cost up even further. Unlike Sony’s approach to optional 3D-accessbility, which requires the purchase of a 3D transmitter as well as 3D glasses, the Samsung LED 7000 3D series comes with an integrated active shutter transmitter that takes out the wire clutter and also an added cost to it.


So what are you waiting for?! Try to see such product for yourself and see how it gives a new innovation to your entertainment experience.

Animated 3D Movies

Producing and making animated computer movies can sometimes mean the same. Producing can include post-production and some activities to get the movie to an audience. Once you’ve made the final cut of your animated 3d movies, there’s still work to be done.

Here’s a procedure on producing animated 3d movies:

-Step 1

Understand that producing movies is something that takes some management skill to take an effect. Remember that the movie project has a life: a beginning and an end.

-Step 2

Secure funds for your computer animated project. Try to take note of the areas that you need to consider for this. Always prepare emergency cash for anything outside the budget.

– Step 3

One medium or high-end computer system is needed for this. You may additional computers if you want to do additional work on the computer while another is rendering.

– Step 4

Understand the legal concerns when you make a project for commercial use. If you intend on making profit from it, you must understand that your profit is divided to the one;s that collaborated with your work. Music for example, by using copyrighted material without permission you may own the owner of the track a portion of your profit.

– Step 5

Learn to create computer animated movies. Resources are abundant on the net for learning this. Try to look at the tips below on how to create computer animated 3d movies.

– Step 6

Acquire music and sound clips that you’ll need for the project. You can make these yourself, purchase music and sound, purchase the rights to use, contract an artist to make the composition, or hire a sound effects company to provide the sounds you need. Sometimes a music provider can be really useful for this.

– Step 7

Voice actor or actors are needed for any narration or dialogue. This can be you and it will not cost anything. You can get family or friends for this. Amateur and professional actors can be costly, depending on certain factors. Rates can be determined by considering the length of the movie and the potential copies to be made.

–  Step 8

Edit the movie. Once the animation is complete you‘ll have to edit the scenes and place voices, sound, and music altogether. Let an audience screen the film before you make a final cut.

–  Step 9

Initiate the DVD production. Once you have a master computer file for DVD burning, you can start production of your computer animated film in DVD. A single DVD burner on your computer won’t be enough. You‘ll need to buy a disk duplicator or have a company to make copies. Also consider all the things that go with DVD production such as the design of the label, DVD case, DVD cover, blank DVDs and the initial quantities required. If demand is great during initial releases, then you can buy more production materials.

–  Step 10

Advertise your finished work. There are several ways for this. Word of mouth, internet marketing, print media, film contests, film festivals , conventions, and television commercials are great examples. Giving free copies at first is one way of good promotion of the film.

– Step 11

A computer animation project can fail even if it’s a good one. Try using 3d animation film as an example of the work you can do in demo reels for getting a job that requires someone with technical skills in computer generated imagery.
