Ortus Full HD 4.8-inch LCD gets glasses-free 3D upgrade

Samsung and LG Display may be working on packing extra pixels into tablet-scale screens, but what if you want resolution overload on your smartphone? Ortus Technologies showed us its 4.8-inch Full HD LCD last year, squeezing 1920 x 1080 458ppi into a panel that would make an iPhone 4 Retina Display weep with ill-disguised shame; now the company is back, having upgraded their display to support 3D.

LG Display livid over Samsung exec’s engineer expletive [Updated]

LG Display livid over Samsung exec’s engineer expletive [Updated]

An unexpected slur by a Samsung exec on rivals LG Display could result in a legal case, after Kim Hyun-suk, vice president of Samsung’s digital media business, described LG's engineers as "really stupid sh*ts" at a press conference earlier this week. Asked by journalists about LG's Full HD claims for its latest 3D TV technology, the Korea Herald reports, Hyun-suk retorted "I heard that LG Display's Kwon Young-soo said its TVs are full HD, I think his engineers are really stupid sh*ts. What a lame argument with no theoretical grounds. It's just unreasonable."

Olympus SZ-30MR shoots simultaneous 1080p HD video & 16MP stills

It's not the Micro Four Thirds camera we were hoping for, but Olympus has outed a pair of new Super Zooms which it claims are the first to shoot Full HD video and 16-megapixel stills simultaneously. The Olympus SZ-30MR and SZ-20 each have dual image stabilization and a backlit 16-megapixel sensor, which the SZ-30MR pairs with a 24x optical zoom and the SZ-20 with a 12.5x optical zoom.

Optimus 3D vs Optimus Tab: Not all HD 3D video is created equal

Optimus 3D vs Optimus Tab: Not all HD 3D video is created equal

When we caught up with LG earlier today, to check out the freshly announced Optimus 3D and Optimus Tab, we couldn't help but wonder about the discrepancy between the smartphone's 1080p Full HD 3D recording capabilities and the tablet's 720p HD 3D recording. Turns out, there's more to a 1GHz, dual-core chipset than just its ARM cores: the Optimus 3D's Texas Instruments OMAP4430 has native support for Full HD recording in 3D, while the NVIDIA Tegra 2 in the Tab doesn't.

JVC GX-PX1 hybrid gets hands-on play: 60fps stills & 36Mbps 1080p

JVC only had a concept of the GX-PX1 hybrid camera/camcorder back at CES 2011, so we spent more time with the 3D-capable GS-TD1 instead, but it seems the company's engineers have been busy. Impress grabbed some hands-on time with the latest version, which looks a little like a blend of Sony's NEX interchangeable lens cameras and JVC's regular camcorders, and it's shaping up to be an interesting model indeed.
