Okay, so you know how I've been talking at length about Stream TV Networks and their Ultra-D technology for 3D-TV without needing glasses? And how I've mentioned that they have deals in place with a bunch of TV manufacturers, but that there's one Really Big Company they have a deal with but I wasn't at liberty to say who?
I can now say who that company is.
They are known as a Really Big Company. But you have to understand the perspective, which makes this even bigger than it seems.
You see, Toshiba has been developing its own glassless 3D-TV. And they were even well-past the concept stage and had working models. A year ago, at IFA Berlin, in fact, I saw Toshiba's glassless 3D-TV on display at the companies pavilion. They were making a big deal of it.
For any company, but most especially a company of that stature, to throw out all its own years of Research & Development, and its own proprietary technology and say, "This other company, this teensy company you've never heard of, makes a much better product that we do, and we're going to license their technology to use instead" -- that's gob-smack flabbergasting. It's almost unheard of. (I say "almost" because I'm bending over backwards to limit my hyperbole.)
The point here is that when I've expressed how great the Ultra-D is -- it ain't just me. And I've done my best not to lie to you or over-exaggerate.
Stream TV Networks' Ultra-D technology is really that good. And now I can tell you that Toshiba thinks so, too. Though I suspect their R&D department is really pissed off.
