“Many people don’t know that with a Samsung 3D TV, you can easily convert 2D content into 3D in real-time with the simple push of a button on your remote,” said Jim Annes, vice president and general manager at AVAD LLC. “What better way to help spread the word than to hold a video contest. The grand prize winner will get a complete 3D electronics package so they can watch their entry and any other conventional 2D content in amazing 3D in their own home.”
Samsung’s 2D-to-3D conversion technology is available on a variety of Samsung 3D TV models. Just by slipping on a pair of 3D glasses and turning on their Samsung 3D TV, consumers can now enjoy any piece of video content or photos in 3D.
