Toshiba unveils a glasses-free 3D notebook
Press release, April 22; Joseph Tsai, DIGITIMES [Friday 22 April 2011]

Toshiba has unveiled the dynabook Qosmio T851/D8CR, which the company claims is the world's first glasses-free 3D notebook able to display 3D and 2D content at the same time on one screen, adding that the new notebook will be available in the Japan market from late July 2011.

The dynabook Qosmio T851/D8CR employs Toshiba's 3D Window technology to realize the glasses-free 3D portable PC able to simultaneously display 3D and 2D content in separate windows in a single screen. Users can watch high-quality 3D images or enjoy 3D games in one window without any need for wearing dedicated glasses or installing a dedicated panel over the display, while at the same time working, browsing the Internet or sending e-mail in another window.

With SpursEngine, a dedicated image processor with advanced performance derived from the multi-core technology of the Cell Broadband Engine, the dynabook Qosmio T851/D8CR boasts 2D to 3D real-time conversion technology that allows users to enjoy high-quality 3D images generated from 2D terrestrial, BS and 110 CS digital broadcasts.

Toshiba's newly introduced Face3D and Caption stabilizer technologies are also featured in the notebook. The Face3D uses Toshiba's distinctive high-speed, high-accuracy face detection technology to locate faces in 2D images and then applies a human depth template to the image, giving the features more depth and assuring a 3D appearance with graded shading.

Toshiba's 3D Window technology is realized by the Active Lens, which controls polarization of the light delivered from the LED panel. With Active Lens turned off, the panel delivers normal 2D image; with it turned on, the panel delivers 3D images, separating the images sent to each eye. Active Lens can be turned off and on quickly and locally, which means individual parts of the LED panel can deliver 3D images. Thus the user can enjoy "3D Window" and 2D images shown simultaneously on one display.
