Qosmio F750 3D to be available in Q3 2011.


Press release:
Toshiba Computer Systems Division launched its first laptop with glasses-free 3D today. The Qosmio F750 3D presents two pioneering achievements: it is the world’s first commercially available glasses-free 3D laptop that can display 2D and 3D content simultaneously in one screen. This is a totally new 3D experience as the user can, for instance, watch 3D content in one window and simultaneously browse the Web for additional information in another window. The Qosmio F750 3D, featuring high-quality DVD 2D to 3D realtime conversion, also opens up fascinating opportunities for professionals such as architects, scientists, product designers and doctors. The Qosmio F750 3D and the non-3D version Qosmio F750 will be available in two colour variations during the third quarter of 2011 in the Middle East.

3D unplugged: the most convenient way to enjoy 3D on a laptop
“The Qosmio F750 3D perfectly demonstrates how Toshiba uses its outstanding expertise in research and development to turn innovative technologies and applications into real products,” said Santosh Varghese, Regional General Manager, Toshiba Gulf. “This new showpiece model offers the cutting-edge technology that multimedia enthusiasts and early adopters are looking for.”

2D and 3D content simultaneously displayed
 The switchable active lens also enables the display to show 2D and 3D content simultaneously – a 3D experience that can only be achieved with glasses-free 3D technology. Users can now, for example, view a 3D movie whilst reading background information on a Web site in 2D.

Face-tracking avoids blind spots in 3D mode
Toshiba uses a switchable active lens to separate the two parallax images and to guide them into the left and the right eye. To allow the viewer to vary his or her position in front of the laptop’s display, the Qosmio F750 3D features an HD web camera with face tracking technology, which continualy detects the position of the viewer’s face. This provides a large 3D viewing zone without blind spots. The Qosmio F750 can easily be connected to any 3D TV via an HDMI cable, so this excellent 3D experience can be enjoyed with friends and family.

Beyond watching 3D movies and playing 3D games
With embedded harman kardon® stereo speakers and Dolby Advanced Audio users get a truly cinematic experience – in 2D and 3D mode. However, glasses-free 3D on a laptop opens up exciting new opportunities far beyond simply watching movies and playing games. Imagine innovative online services in the tourism sector such as vivid three-dimensional images of hotel rooms, museums or city views. And it can also support professionals in their daily work – architects, interior designers and product designers can bring their ideas alive and scientists can use the technology for 3D modelling. Thanks to sophisticated 2D to 3D conversion, which adds a third dimension to 2D images in realtime, surgeons can harness the power of 2D to 3D conversion to improve their use of probes and further minimise the impact of invasive surgery.
