New glasses-free 3D Display from Philips

3D Made simple: no glasses needed
Amaze your audience with the new Philips 42” 3D Display – BDL4251VS

MMD, the exclusive marketer and reseller for Philips-branded LCD monitors and public signage displays worldwide today announced the launch of its newest and latest auto-stereoscopic 3D model, the 42” BDL4251VS. Developed in conjunction with Dimenco, a leading technology company in the field of no-glasses 3D, the new 42” display is designed to grab people’s attention with the sharpest and most vivid 3D resolution available in the market.

Taking advantage of lenticular technology, the BDL4251VS achieves its excellent quality of 3D images thanks to its 28 lenticular views via which the audience is able to peek around objects, depending on where they are standing in relation to the display itself. This, in combination with the widest 3D viewing angle available in the market and the possibility to change the optimal viewing distance of the 3D display, assures that the audience is treated to an even more enjoyable and memorable visual experience.

“With more and more screens all competing for your attention, this is the one that stands out from the crowd with a deep and truly stunning 3D experience,” explained Wilfred de Man, Sales and Marketing Director of MMD’s Public Signage Display EMEA team.

The display is able to play both 2D and 3D (2D+Z) images and videos making it extremely flexible as a digital signage tool. The integrated Dimenco rendering core, which works with the Dimenco interface format (2D +Z) gives both content creators and end users full control of the depth-effect characteristics of their 3D images, offering simple creation of stunning and eye-catching 3D content. The BDL4251VS, which has already received a nomination for the 2012 Technology InAVation Awards, offers the deepest, most realistic visual experience in the glasses-free 3D display market today.

Easy 3D Bundle: 3D made easy by Philips Public Signage
Alongside the standalone 3D display, a limited full bundle promotion is being launched in Q4 2011. Comprising of a BDL4251VS 3D display, a media player with 3D play-out software pre-installed, several 3D demo clips, easy to use 3D creation software trial plugins and a 50% discount on content conversion coupon, the total discount on this package represents a value of more than €1500,- . The Easy 3D Bundle is an all inclusive package to create and deliver the most comprehensive and easy 3D package around. The bundle package can be ordered with type number: BDL4251VS/90.

“By integrating 2D plus depth to create the most realistic 3D digital signage engine on the market today, the end user is able to create 3D from just about any content,” continued de Man. “As we are offering the display, media player and creation software in an all-in-one bundle, this is the ideal solution for any company looking to implement and screen marketing content that really does stand out in the crowd.”

The BDL4251VS is equipped with an array of connectivity options allowing flexibility of choice when it comes to deciding which media player to use, and the Smart Insert on the rear panel allows the simple integration of any Small Form Factor (SFF) PC without adding to the overall depth of the display. This ensures the simplest of installations when mounting via a VESA bracket.
