LG have today lifted the curtain on the LG DM50D monitor, a 3D screen that straddles the line between a PC display and a personal HDTV thanks to its DTV tuner, MPEG4, DVBC, DVBT support and HDMI inputs.
The 3D tech employed is passive, meaning no heavy, expensive, battery powered glasses are needed, and jsut a polarised pair as used in LG’s Cinema 3D screens.
“Our consumer research showed that while interest in 3D monitors was high, there were certain misgivings about the cumbersome glasses, reported health concerns and lack of 3D content,” said Si-hwan Park, vice president of the monitor division at LG’s Home Entertainment Company.
“Through CINEMA 3D technology, the DM50D addresses all of these concerns, leaving users free to be completely immersed in the best quality 3D content and gaming on any monitor on the market today.”
With “flicker free” certification and double the brightness of rival 3D monitors LG promise that the screeb should cut down on reports of “3D sickness”, though you do have to wonder why anyone would opt for any sort of monitor that leads to any form of discomort.
Still, if 3D is a must for your computing needs, the LG DM50D hits UK stores in July.
