Mitsubishi has been shipping 3D-ready TVs since 2007. The company has been so far ahead of the tech trend that some of the more recent developments in home 3D usage has surpassed the previously-released Mitsubishi 3D-ready TVs. Specifically, the development of a Blu-ray 3D standard left some of the older Mitsubishi TVs behind.
Mitsubishi has stepped in to the rescue of its faithful customers with a new adapter that will make those older 3D-ready models compatible with a 3D Blu-ray player. The Mitsubishi 3DC-1000 3D adapter will be available in late spring 2010. The initial retail price has yet to be set for the adapter; however, speaking with a Mitsubishi rep at CES 2010, I was assured that the price would not hurt too bad.
Mitsubishi L65A90 65-Inch LaserVue Rear Projection HDTV
Mitsubishi recently introduced a price 3D-Ready TV that operates via lasers. According to Mitsubishi the LaserVue TV features twice the color gamut of current HDTVs. The “3D-Ready” spec is interesting because Mitsubishi disclaims any 3D standard noting, “A 3D standard format does not currently exist for Blu-Ray or DVD prepackaged media.” You’ll still have to wear your red/blue glasses in order to watch 3D content on the LaserVue TV.
In addition to delivering fantastic color the Mitsubishi LaserVue TV will also save you on energy costs due to the lower power consumption from the lasers, which apparently also last forever. Maybe these specs will be enough to justify the introductory price tag of about $7000.
