Sony To Begin Selling 3D TVs in June
Sony announced Tuesday that it will begin selling 3D televisions in Japan in June with U.S. release expected around the same time this summer.
The TVs will be available in four sizes, with the 40-inch and 46-inch going on sale on June 10 in Japan and the 52-inch and 60-inch available on July 16. Included are two pairs of Sony’s active 3D glasses, as well as a camera sensor on each unit that will adjust sound and picture quality based on viewers’ positions. A remote control button enables the switch from a regular 2-D image to 3-D.
Sony plans to boost its TV shipments over the next fiscal year by about 70% to more than 25 million units, with 10% of those sets being 3D capable.
