Last week, we witness two electronic giants showcasing their 3D TV one week after another. We were impressed by the promised 2D -> 3D by Samsung but they did not demonstrate it at the SEA forum. Perhaps it is not ready for the public. Are they seriously able to deliver their TVs by end March with the upscale feature ?

We asked SONY Singapore and their comment is that their 3D TV’s are capable of 2D to simulated 3D conversions via SONY’s proprietary technology. It is also able to convert 3D content to 2D.

Please note that the 3D effect is simulated only when converting from 2D content to 3D- so the effect and the way viewers perceive depth in the image varies depending on the content.

It is an official feature on the SONY LCD TVs when it starts shipping in July this year (Singapore).
