In a significant stride for the world of television, Magnetic3D has launched its groundbreaking glasses-free lenticular-powered 3D TV technology. This cutting-edge approach evolves from the traditional lenticular imaging seen in 3D postcards. The innovation lies in how Magnetic3D has angled the lenticular bands at 45-degrees, combined with the utilization of subpixels. The result is a remarkably improved 3D visual display, setting a new benchmark in the industry.
The 55-inch model of this TV is particularly noteworthy. On first glance, viewers might not discern the 3D effect from wider angles. Yet, as they approach and stand directly in front of the TV set, the magic unveils. There’s a depth that becomes palpable, from abstract designs to realistic portrayals of fish and basketball players – the effect is so pronounced that the basketball may seem to be breaching the confines of the screen. Although there are minor visual artifacts at sharp angles, they are overshadowed by the extraordinary image quality. The optimal viewing range? Between 8 and 15 feet from the TV.
Having originally aimed their product line at retailers and the commercial sector, Magnetic3D is transitioning towards the consumer market. They offer a spectrum of sizes from a modest 43 inches, scaling up to a grand 65 inches. This larger model aligns with the preferences of contemporary UHD viewers. However, a substantial price tag, starting at a hefty $10,000 and climbing to $20,000 for the top-tier model, may give potential buyers a moment of pause.
