Panasonic Previews 3-D Projection for Video Conferencing

On May 20, 2011, Panasonic Solutions Company announced that they will be previewing a passive 3D Projection system at NRA Show 2011. Anyone attending the trade show can try out the new system at DIRECTV’s booth #1868.

The projection system will use two projectors to simulate a 3D experience. There is also a polarized filter attached to each projector lens that can provide a unique perspective for each individual eye. People will still need to wear special glasses in order to watch a video, but these glasses will utilize passive filters that are much more cost-effective to replicate than traditional 3-D glasses.

The projection package includes two 3D projectors, a pair of circular polarizers, and a large diagonal silver screen. The system will also come with a hundred pairs of polarized glasses, a dual-projector stacking frame, and assorted components that are used during the setup process.

Art Rankin, Head of the Projector Division at Panasonic Solutions Company, spoke briefly about the new projection system. He stated that the market demand of 3D applications was growing at a remarkable pace and that this product gives their customer base the highest ROI for 3D projection deployments.

The 3D projection system is scheduled to be released in Summer 2011. It is suitable for use at public venues, educational institutions, and corporate environments and will be sold for around $24,999.
