LG unveils new 3D LCDs for computer users with no flicker

If you sit in front of a computer screen all day and at the end of the day you find that your eyes are tired it could be because of screen flicker. Computer screens flicker faster than you can really tell with your eyes, but that flicker is enough to make your eyes tired after as while. If you have ever seen a computer or TV on video with the flickering they do you know what I mean. LG has new computer screens that support 3D and are certified flicker free.

Both of the new screens fall into the LG Cinema 3D Monitor line and are the D41P and the D42P. The flicker free certification was awarded to the monitors by TÜV and Intertek, which are two of Europe's top safety certification agencies. The screens also have HDMI 1.4 ports, convert 2D to 3D and use the LG cinema 3D glasses that have no moving parts making them lighter and more comfortable to wear for long periods of time.

The difference between the two screen mores is nothing but size. The 41P is a 23-inch wide unit and the 42p is a 21.5-inch unit. Both have 250-nits brightness in 2D mode and 100nits in 3D mode and 5ms response times. The native resolution on both panels is 1920 x 1080. The two screens use the LG FPR or Film Patterned Retarder 3D technology that allows for the bright image and no flicker. LG rival Samsung is also offering lots of 3D products with a $15 million investment into 3D tech recently.
