Are you ready for 3D in the home? Mitsubishi thinks so, and the manufacturer has enlisted the help of graphics processor Nvidia Corp. and media server manufacturer Aspen Media Products to get there.
Mitsubishi announced an alliance with Nvidia and Aspen Media Products today. No specifics on what they’ll be providing together, just that the trio is using its collective brainpower in their respective realms—television production, such as Mitsubishi’s 3D-ready Diamond line; stereoscopic 3D technology that’s been a hit with PC gaming; and the media server that can capitalize on an increasing amount of 3D content being produced.
“Mitsubishi, a leader in large screen HDTV, Nvidia, a major force in the entertainment graphics market and Aspen Media Products, an innovator in media server technology, have each developed unique technologies that take us to the next level in realizing the dream of 3D home entertainment,” said David Naranjo, director of product development, Mitsubishi Digital Electronics America. “By combining the strengths of these three market leading companies, 3D in the home is now ready to become an exciting reality.”
Mitsubishi has been showing off its 3D technology since it was a hit at last year’s CEDIA Expo, where viewers donned 3D glasses and saw things like football plays and swimming turtles as though they were an arm’s reach away.
Now we’ll have to keep an eye to see how content such as ultra-realistic PC games and live events might be integrated between the media server, graphics experts and our televisions.
