Samsung held their Blu-ray Press Release this week inNew York City. On hand were the latest lineup of 2010 Blu-ray players and displays. Below is a brief video covering their product line. Video demo of 7000 and 9000 LED series; C6900 BD player; Samsung Plasma; Samsung C6930 Home Theater System. Source Material: Monsters vs. Aliens 3D courtesy of DreamWorks. My initial impressions of what I saw are rather mixed. What is being introduced to the home market is as good as what is currently being shown in theaters. If you are impressed with 3D features you have seen theatrically, you will be just as impressed in your home. It's that good! That being said, the representatives of Home Theater Forum were not won over by all the Samsung LED displays we watched 3Dcontent on. One of their best displays had noticeable image ghosting. For example, a scene from Monsters vs. Aliens taking place on the Golden Gate Bridge showed a faint additional bridge cable line. There were many cases that the double imaging was noticeably apparent that it became a distraction from enjoying the content. The plasma display we looked at looked significantly better. This did not surprise me as most of the 3D content I had seen in early production was on plasma and it looked noticeably better. I would guess all of that is attributed to the higher refresh rate attributed to that technology. That being said, we still noticed miniscule amounts of ghosting on the plasma display as well. Being that there were initial problems reported from Best Buy consumers concerning the first batch of Samsung Blu-ray players it is rather difficult to determine if any of the anomalies are inherent of the player rather than the display. We are going to be very careful about blaming Samsung. The problems we saw were not just related to their displays. Wetook the same source material (Monsters vs. Aliens) to the Panasonic 3D press event the following day and discovered similar ghosting issues which leads us to believe that perhaps the problem may actually lie in the authoring of the disc. Confused? So are we. Samsung is including a starter kit with the purchase of their 3D display and Blu-ray player. The kit contains two 3D glasses and a copy of Monsters vs. Aliens 3D. When we inquired how much additional eyewear would cost we were quoted $135 for each additional pair of glasses (pair meaning one), which we felt was a bit outrageous. Of course, in time, we expect prices to rapidly decline. The glasses are streamlined though not particularly lightweight. They contain a small battery and are powered on and off via a tiny button on the upper right corner of the frame. I noticed that upon turning them on there is a slight room dimming effect that takes place which helps cut out ambient light (though I am not certain it was designed for that purpose). We will be continuing our coverage of 3D this week as Panasonic rolls out their 2010 product line at a similar NYC press event. Watch for Adam Gregorich's coverage later this week in this and otherthreads within this High Definition Hardware forum. In the meantime, don't miss more details pertaining to the Samsung event here.
