Video: Multiplayer gaming goes full screen with LG TV



LG is using its Dual Play technology to entice gamers into buying its 3D televisions. Normally in multiplayer games, the screen is split, but with dual play gamers can view the full screen with each player seeing a separate image. 3D TVs work by sending different images to each eye and Dual Play uses that to its advantage by sending one set of images to one player and another set with another player. Where typical polarized 3D glasses would have a left and right eye, the dual play glasses have one set with two left eyes and another set with two right eyes. And even though the TV supports 3D in dual play games are shown in traditional 2D. Dual Play works with any LG cinema 3D TV and the glasses will begin shipping along with LW980 series television by the end of September. LG also said that users could make their own Dual Play glasses simply by switching out lenses. LG wasn’t the first company with this idea thought. In June at E3, Sony showed a TV that creates the same, though it only measured 24-inches. The Dual Play technology demonstrates another use of 3D technology and with it Sony and LG are hoping to convince more consumers to upgrade from their traditional 2D displays. 3D gaming content has proved especially helpful in the transition.
