LAS VEGAS: Chinese television manufacturer TCL has taken on the larger companies at CES in Las Vegas with the release of two 3D televisions - one that requires glasses and one that does not.
The model which requires glasses is a 240Hz LCD TV with an independent infra red device to communicate with the active shutter glasses. This 46-inch television features 1920 x 1080 resolution, 1000:1 contrast ratio and features HDMI input as well as a 4 millisecond response rate.
The television that does not require glasses, also known as auto-stereoscopic, uses a lenticular lens which acts as a filter over the 1920 x 1080 screen.
TCL, which is marketed in Europe as Thomson and in North America as RCA, has a dedicated subsidiary in Australia.
