Philips Wowzone: Massive 132-Inch, 3d Display
August 30th, 2007
At this week’s IFA consumer electronics show in Berlin, Philips is showing off a presentation system that can display images in 3D on a huge wall-mounted display.
The 132-inch display was made by connecting nine of Philips 42-inch 3D displays in a 3×3 grid. Based on their WOWvx 3D technology, the displays can show 3-dimensional images without special glasses.
WOWvx uses a lenticular lens assembly on top of the LCD panel to display different images to both your left and right eye. In addition to the special display, there’s digital signal processing equipment and software that generates the necessary 3D views for the screens. Since individual WOWvx displays cost about $12,000 each, I’d imagine that the huge nine display rig would cost well into the six-figure price range. I guess I won’t have one in my media room any time soon.
