The Only 3D Video Camcorder
With a 3D video kit for the Panasonic AG-DVX100. This new product uses two Panasonic DVX100s and some very interesting electronics to transform a video signal into a 3D viewable picture image. 21st Century has already hacked the DVX100A in order to produce and make a 960-line progressive scan camcorder, also using 2 DVX100s.
Other units are emerging and giving Panasonic competition and giving them a good fight. Technically speaking DXG has developed the gold mine. The budget camera company’s 3D View pistol cam got the real deal, in a Hammacher-Schlemmer package that will set customers back $600. They will get the twin-lens VGA shooter and also a companion 7-inch, 800 x 480 3D media player, both of which are nicely outfitted with glasses-free parallax barrier LCD screens.
The shirt pocket camcorder that records video in 3D to provide a true stereoscopic viewing experience. The camcorder’s 2 lenses work in unison with its 3 MP image sensor to record slightly differing images which are interlaced to make and create a video anaglyph–a 3D video. Videos are digitally recorded in 640 x 480 pixel resolution as AVI format. A 4 GB SD card stores up to 4 hours of video or 2,000 3D still images (JPEG).
Features: The camcorder’s 3 1/4″ TFT shows content in 3D, and movies can be viewed on the software media player’s 7″ screen because it is overlaid with a parallax barrier that displays video in 3D without the need for 3D glasses. Media player includes headphone jack and speakers. The camcorder can also shoot and record standard (2D) movies and pictures for display on the media player in 2D. The unit also includes USB cable for moving or copying content onto a computer, its rechargeable battery provides 2 hrs of operation from a 6-hour charge; the media player uses an included AC adapter.
