Toshiba’s Singapore Computer Systems Division (CSD), a division of Toshiba Singapore Pte Ltd, unveiled the Qosmio F750 3D, the world’s first glasses-free 3D notebook PC. It provides a totally new 3D experience as the users can view 3D and 2D content concurrently on one screen.

“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 Ms. Wong Wai Meng, Senior Manager of Product Marketing, Toshiba Singapore Pte Ltd. “This new Toshiba flagship model offers the cutting-edge technology that multimedia enthusiasts and early adopters are looking for,” she added.

3D images are created using parallax, by delivering separate images to the left and right eyes. User can enjoy high-quality 3D images without dedicated glasses if the separate images are properly delivered to each eye. Toshiba has adopted a “face-tracking” function and “Active Lens” to fulfill this requirement.

“Face-tracking” allows the web camera integrated into the Qosmio F750 3D to track the user’s face and recognize the position of the eyes. “Active Lens”, integrated into the LED panel, controls polarization of light delivered from the panel. These functions secure precise delivery of separate images to each eye, even when the user moves. 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 continually detects the position of the viewer’s face. This provides a large 3D viewing zone without blind spots.

“3D Window” is realized by the “Active Lens”, which controls polarization of the light delivered from the LED panel. With Active Lens turned off, the panel delivers normal 2D image; with it turned on, the panel delivers 3D images, separating the images sent to each eye. Active Lens can be turned off and on quickly and locally, which means individual parts of the LED panel can deliver 3D images. Thus the user can enjoy “3D Window” and 2D images shown simultaneously on one display.

Qosmio F5750 3D is also embedded with 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.
