Samsung TV Displays Different Content Streams For Each Viewer
The tech company has demonstrated a new TV at CES that lets two viewers watch a different show at the same time.
Tired of arguing over what shows you want to watch? Instead of having to compromise and pick just one, the new Samsung OLED TV lets you watch two different things at once with the help of 3D glasses.
On show at CES, the HDTV with ‘Multi-View’ can transmit four images simultaneously and can also let as many as four viewers watch four separate 2D images.
Multichannel explains that this works using active-shutter 3D glasses. The shutters open and close to let the correct images through. The TV displays 240 fps and uses Bluetooth to communicate with the glasses, which have built-in earphones so viewers don’t disturb each other with conflicting sound for different TV shows.
Samsung’s OLED TV also displays normal 2D in HD for when you want to watch the same program together. It is due to be released later this year, with pricing yet to be announced.
