Panasonic develops the world's first 3D full HD plasma home theater system

Today Panasonic in Japan announced [JP] it has created the world’s first full HD plasma home theater system capable of displaying 3D images. The company also said the technology will be showcased to the general public next week at the CEATEC 2008 exhibition.

In a product demonstration for the Japanese press, Panasonic used their flagship 103-inch plasma TV, which is the biggest of its kind in the world, and a Blu-ray player that is capable of displaying full HD images with separate views to the left and right eye.

Panasonic claims one Blu-ray disc is sufficient for storing the 3D video material, which the player decoded in real-time. Users need to wear polarizing glasses to get the 3D experience. Pricing and availability is currently unknown, but I will try the system out next week and try to track down technical details.
