"Subtle blurring": Samsung abandons 3D Full HD logo on the D6000 series

"In order not to cause further uncertainty among consumers, we have decided for now not to use the previously used 3D Full HD logo on the LED D6000 series". With these words, Samsung opposes charges that say the TVs are not full-HD capable in 3D mode.

According to Samsung, a special video technology increases the frame rate of the D6000 series to reduce cross-talk in 3D mode and to provide smoother images. However, this results in blurring, because unlike the higher series with 200 Hz frame rate, the D6000 TVs only provides 100 Hz.

This shortcoming has been confirmed by tests carried by German CE portal Chip, among others. Samsung explains away: 3D Full HD was not standardized currently, so manufacturers and testing laboratories did not have congruent definitions, they say.

Now the manufacturer wants independent institutions to assess the 3D playback with Full HD resolution to "create more transparency for consumers." In line with that, Samsung offers customer support for questions concerning the 3D-display quality issue of the LED D6000 series at the toll free hotline 0800-1213161.

Guessing game: Is the D6000 series full-HD capable in 3D mode? Consumers and testers say no. (Picture: Samsung)

It seems paradoxical, however, that Samsung, major proponent of active shutter technology, verbally attacks the polarization faction on account of 3D resolution issues, and let themselves get caught with a similar problem.
