LG Flatron M400D 3D LCD Monitor

LG had more to show off at their booth than just the hybrid HD-DVD/BD player.  The Flatron M400D is LG’s new 3D LCD monitor.  The monitor simulates a 3D image using a lenticular lens filter which splits the source content into 25 separate views and then demultiplex’s those views and displays them on the screen as one image.

The system does produce a 3D effect without the use of any special glasses.  Viewers must be between 3 to 7 meters directly in front of the screen in order to see the effect.  The monitor is geared towards commercial applications.  No pricing information is currently available.

    I'm very interested in the Samsung 30" LED LCD. Awesome resolution, great response and contrast, and most imporantly, it'll have very good color reproduction. Reply

    Those micro projectors are sweet, and being LED powered, and priced right, will be something I'm lookin to buy. Reply

    2nd phone call:
    me: [in poorly imitated feminin voice] we are interested in buying a qhd display from you.

    I was at the show and the LG Rep. told me that both the Consumer player, and the PC Drive would both retail for about $1100 next month...not $2000. Reply

    kirbalo,

    The cost of the drive will actually be around $1200. I corrected it in the article. Thanks for pointing it out!

    After the first CES 2007 article "Convergence Happened" I was expecting something new. None of the products at the show have made convergence a reality. It's still an ambiguous, convoluted idea, like converging movies and games.

    - Set top boxes, like AppleTV, have been around for years and have failed to catch on.
    - Xbox 360 is not an option for people who don't play games, so it won't be mainstream.
    - IPTV on the Xbox 360 will have a smaller audience than the Xbox 360.
    - Small HTPCs haven't caught on, DTX won't change that.
    - The iPhone is a Jack of All Trades, Master of None.

    Convergence hasn't happened and it won't ever happen. Specialized, divergent technology is:
    - Cheaper to buy
    - Cheaper to build
    - Easier to use
    - Easier to make
    - Easier to sell
    - More efficient
    - More reliable
    - More profitable
    - Smaller
    - Simpler

    Sure, there were a few cool things, but so hideously expensive even if I sold my right kidney it'd only be enough for the down payment on the loan to pay for em'. All the HD stuff is so DRM'd no freakin' way am I gonna be paying money for it, don't see how many other people will either. Reply

    I doubt people will care about DRM for now. Not many people seem to bother trying to back up their movies they buy. I don't see that changing. Therefore those who complain are in the minority. Reply

    I like the "No Cameras" sign below the Samsung Wireless Plasma. Reply
