Toshiba To Release Glasses-Free 3D TVs In FY 2011

Toshiba is planning to launch a range of glasses-free 3D TVs into the market before the close of fiscal 2011.

The Japanese firm is set to showcase two prototype models - one 56-inches the other 65-inches - at this week's Consumer Electronics Show (CES) in Las Vegas, and is likely to launch one over 40-inches and another over 50-inches to the public.

Unlike its already released 12-inch and 20-inch glasses-free 3D TV sets, Toshiba has also announced plans to market its new range of 3D TVs to the world, rather than just Japan.

The market for 3D TVs is yet to take-off in a big way, despite a growing number of 3D channels becoming more readily available to consumers.

Toshiba is yet to divulge a cost for the TVs, or say exactly when they will be released.

Atsushi Murasawa, Toshiba's head of visual products, told the media: “These will not only be for the Japanese market, but also America, Europe and China.” monitors all leading technology stories and rounds them up to help you save time hunting them down.
