Sony executive Mick Hocking told VG247 at Gamescom that glasses-free technology shouldn't be expected on large TVs for a long time, he explained it can work well on small screens, but that it's not yet suitable for larger displays. Hocking refused to comment on the possibility of a PSP with 3D functionality, but he did reveal that a Home 3D service may follow as the popularity of 3D grows.
“The only way at the moment of achieving high-definition, high quality 3D on a TV is via some form of glasses,” said Hocking.
“We need to filter the image to each eye.”
Hocking added: “Our solution is the active glass solution on the BRAVIA. This is because we can deliver full-resolution frames, there’s no drop in resolution and we don’t get flicker in our glass solution either, so this, we think, is the best way of achieving the highest possible quality 3D experience on the TV.”
Hocking added that glasses-free 3D solutions can work well on small screens, but “don’t work very well at all” for larger screens.
