LG Electronics today announced the release of two CINEMA 3D Monitors ?D41P and D42P ? equipped with LG?s new Film Patterned Retarder (FPR) 3D technology.
"Although 3D is one of the hottest items in technology today, some consumers are holding back from purchasing 3D products because of concerns over performance and price," said Si-hwan Park, Vice President of the Monitor Division, LG Home Entertainment Company. "With CINEMA 3D Monitors, we?ve addressed all these concerns. The advanced picture quality, more comfortable glasses and competitive pricing makes it very hard to keep put-ting off 3D."
Both 3D monitors have received the "Flicker-Free" certification, was awarded by T?V and Intertek, two of Europe?s top safety certification agencies.
LG clains that its FPR technology provide clearer, brighter 3D images and lower crosstalk, meaning less eyestrain.
The monitors work with all graphic cards and are compatible with popular home PC operating systems. They support HDMI 1.4 for easy hook-up with other 3D devices, making it possible to play 3D content without a PC. Also, a 2D to 3D conversion function converts regular content into 3D on the fly.
The LG Cinema 3D Monitor will be launched in Korea today and will be rolled out globally early June starting in Europe.
