3D Glasses Manufacturers Unite!

Wednesday, August 10th, 2011

Big TV manufacturers like Panasonic, Samsung Electronics and Sony recently announced plans to jointly develop a specification for 3D active-shutter glasses based on Bluetooth wireless technology.  The companies’ Full HD 3D Glasses Initiative is designed to standardize consumer 3D active glasses, enabling “universal” glasses that would work with Panasonic, Samsung and Sony 3DTVs, as well as potentially others.

The new standardization can help out consumers as the price of 3D glass should eventually drop in price.  According to an article by Multichannel News, the general public hasn’t exactly welcomed 3D at home with open arms.  Manufacturers hope that this new way of production will increase availability and interest to a broader audience.

Attention App Creators!

Thursday, July 7th, 2011

Panasonic has already lured some big names to its Viera Connect platform, such as MLB and Hulu, but now the company is opening up to smaller developers who want to see their creations developed for the big screen. Their program went live in January earlier this year, but now the company is providing an easy path from creation to release for its line of Panasonic Smart TVs. Panasonic will still maintain final control over what apps make it to the Viera market, but expect new games and streaming video sources to start popping up soon.

If you have an app already in the works or an idea for a killer app, check out their website for full details and instructions.
