Sony BDP-S770 Blu-ray Player Has 3D

This might be the best Blu-ray Player available: Sony BDP-S770

The new Sony Player is one of those that will have built-in support for playing 3D movies. Wi-Fi is also integrated and you can serve and share your video content in your home network using the DLNA support.

Following the whole Apple iPhone Hype, the BDP-S770 will will support an iPhone/iPod Touch remote control app. Why exactly you need something like this, beats me, but it's cool alright...

The best feature is definitely the Blu-ray 3D™ Playback, at least for me.

Others might find these specs important:

BDP-S770 Blu-ray Disc™ Player

  • Dolby® TrueHD and dts-HD Master Audio™ decoding
  • Photo/Music/Video Playback via USB and DLNA®
  • Full HD 1080p single-disc Blu-ray disc™, DVD, SA-CD, CD player
  • BRAVIA® Internet Video and BD-LIVE™
  • IP Content Noise Reduction
  • Built-in Wi-Fi® Wireless (802.11) with Wi-Fi® Protected Setup (WAP)
  • Entertainment Database Browser with Gracenote technology
  • DVD upscaling to 1080p with Precision Cinema HD Upscaling
  • BRAVIA® Monolithic Design

The Sony BDP-S770 Blu-ray Player will be available this summer, and hopefully there will be enough 3D content to play around.

Toy Story 3 in 3D

| Jan 19, 2010
The new third installment from Toy Story 3 Movie will be available in theaters June 18, 2010. Pixar is well known for its perfect 3D animation films, so watching this in 3D will be a real treat.

It actually doesn't matter that happens to the Toy Story heroes, what's the story anyway. Tom Hanks, Tim Allen and Joan Cusack are still along, playing Woody, Buzz and the gang. they get dumped in a day-care center after their owner, Andy, departs for college.

This movie is highly anticipated, I'll get my ticket to Imax 3D soon, I'm sure you'll do the same.

You just need to see the 1080p HD trailer to Toy Story 3. You'll understand why.

The 3D specs for the new 1080p Blu-Ray are ready to go

So it's official, we're going to have stereoscopic 3D content on the new 1080p blu-ray discs. The BDA (Blu-ray Disc sociation) just completed the specifications.

That's means we're going to get also 3D blu-ray players, that don't depend on any specific 3D technology.

Blu-ray 3D will offer full HD 1080p resolution to each eye, maintaining the same picture quality that you get with HD. Any 3D display will be able to work with it, regardless of the used technology.

These new players are downward compatible with the normal blu-ray discs. That's actually a very good thing, you don't have to throw away your existing 2D blu-ray collection, you payed a lot of hard-earned money for it, and you'll get to buy new enhanced 3D 1080p movies that will blow your mind. It will probably cost you some more, at least in the beginning, but much less then going to IMax every weekend.

The 3D-enabled BD players should be available in Q2 2010.

This is a major technological breakthrough, this new specification will open the road for a lot existing applications. The new Sony PS3 will support the new 3D spec, so Playstation fans out there, you should be happy, you'll be able to play 3D content in no time.

Sony will start a 3D TV Channel in US

| Jan 18, 2010
Good news, Sony plans to start a 3D TV Channel in US, together with Discovery Channel and Imax.

This will happen sometime in 2011, hopefully a beta test phase will be set in motion, hopefully free.

this Sony 3D TV channel will focus on natural history, technology and science, space documentaries and children and adventure shows. Sounds interesting to me!

This will definitely get a lot of attention from the HDTV channel world, actually seeing the first 3D TV images makes the difference.

Hiroshi Yoshioka, Sony's Executive Deputy President, said last November that 50% of all new Sony TV-sets will be 3D capable by 2013. Nothing about the price tags...

3D Polarization in 3D glasses

| Jan 15, 2010
we know how the Red/Blue - Green 3D glasses work, let's take a lok at a newer much advanced 3D technology called: 3D Polarization.

The priciple is quite similar, but instead of color filters, polarized filters are used. Two projectors display two different images on the screen, each having a different polarization. Your 3D glasses contain lenses with diferrent polarization, allowing only one image to each eye. The main advantage is that you'll get a clear color image.

All the 3D movie studios use the 3D Polarization technology to film 3D movies.

Red/Blue or Red/Green 3D Glasses

The idea for these Red/Blue or Red/Green 3D Glasses is simple.
your TV or Beamer displays two images on your screen, one red the other one blue or green.

on your 3D glasses there are special filters in every lens, the filter in the first glass filters one image and sends only the red image to your eye. the other glass filters the red image and lets only the blue / green image. So your brain receives two different images.

The problem with this 3D technology is that filtering red, blue or green colors results in a loss in image quality.

Needless to say, this technology is quite old and it way used in older movies for creating 3D effects. Today another advanced technology is used to create this effect: 3D Polarization.

3D Movies Glasses - magic or science? this is how it works

So how is this possible, that with these special 3D Glasses you see suddenly your favourite movie jumping off the television screen?

The whole idea is based on the fact that one have two eyes, and you see two different images, from two different positions. You'll understand what I mean, you need only to watch an object in front of you, first with one eye, then with the other one.

When both your eyes are open, your brain is trained to focus automatically to made you think that you see only one image. So your brain converts the two images it receives in only one.

That's where the 3D Glasses come in play. Each glass is different, thats why it receives a diferrent image from your TV. These two diferrent images are fed into your brain, that tries to make only one. You experience this process as 3D Viewing.

There are two 3D technologies
