Samsung 3DTV

Samsung is internally testing a stereoscopic 3-D rendering chip for its TVs that could be released as early as the second half of 2009. The chip could help translate 2-D video content to 3-D. It could also interpret 2-D content with embedded depth information, an approach Samsung expects some Hollywood producers to adopt next year.

In terms of 3-D displays, Hyun-Suk Kim, vice president of R&D for Samsung's television products, said "the easiest way is to have 60 Hz each for left and right images, so the display does not change because we have 120 and 240 Hz displays."
