Sony, Japanese consumer electronics giant has unveiled a new Personal 3D Viewer known as the Sony MTZ-T1, which will be available to retailers from next week only. MTZ-T1 is the final product of the prototype that was displayed by Sony in January this year at the Consumer Electronics Show, Las Vegas. This head-mounted Sony 3D personal viewer can be yours for the price of $799.99 only.
Sony MTZ-T1 is unlike other 3D glasses where the glasses are a bit uncomfortable to the user and pictures often looks dim. This new 3D viewer strapped to your head will give you a clear, crisp, and vivid picture, making your experience an enjoyable and uninterrupted one. You will no longer have to satisfy with the dim viewing experience.
Sony MTZ-T1 comes with two 0.7 organic light-emitting diode (OLED) screens for your eyes, displays 720p HD video (both 2D and 3D), 150 virtual image size, and a headphone of 5.1 virtual sound surround for the perfect sound effect.
Tom Campbell, spokesman for the Sony video and audio center said that the Sony MTZ-T1 launch event generated a line of more than 100 “looky loos and early adopters.”
Though Sony MTZ-T1 has not been distributed to retailers, it was formally launched on 3 November at Video and Audio Center, a local Southern California retailer in Lawndale. Neither Sony nor Campbell has disclosed exactly how much they sold during the launch event. But when Aaron Levine visited Los Angeles Times last week, he said that Sony has already made quite a few sales.
Sony really knows how to equip its users with the latest technology, and it always tries to explore and succeed where others have failed. The latest 3D personal viewer - Sony MTZ-T1 is one such example.
But now the question that arises is will you spend $799.99 for such a product? Will you buy this headset to watch movies and play games ? Share your thoughts below.
