How many faces can it actually track?
Also, full Aperture 4K is 4096 × 3112…Not a big deal but, the 3D resolution on this TV is actually 720p.

Yea and even if it could track more than one it would be able to adjust to more than one at a time.

Patience is a virtue, I’ll wait and pay 1/10 of the cost.  Even if this set doesn’t reach the US, another one with similar capabilities will.  For now, I’ll suffer with my 58” Plasma :)

Don’t be so sure of that. 3D resolution is not as straightforward as you think.  Read Dr. Soneira’s discussion of active vs. passive 3D TVs at

>>Dr. Soneira<<
Dr. Soneira’s logic is wrong you don’t increase the horizontal resolution because you see it with two eyes.

Not wishing to be pedantic EK, but Dr. Soneira is a very well-respected expert in all types of displays and their properties. He is the CEO of a company which produces display measuring software that is used world wide. What are your credentials?

I hold a P.H.D. as well, but it doesn’t take a college education to understand this. How is that not pedantic? Because I say his theory is flawed you question my intelligence? Even if his theory was correct and the 720 somehow turned into 1440 (i’m simplifying) then the 1080 display would be 2160. You can’t say resolution has no bearing because it does, it will be more noticable as displays get bigger. I believe that is all Andrew was pointing out.
