Photo story: Russia's first 3D LED TV off the assembly line at SERK, April 23, 2010
Last Friday, at the invitation of the lamo4ok habrayuzer , I managed to attend a landmark event of its kind - the release of Russia's first serial 3D LED TV, at the Samsung factory in the Kaluga Region.
And since I myself am interested in the topic of 3D and everything related to it, I will be happy to share what I happened to see on this tour.
We decided to get there on our own, or rather, on the car of a friend who agreed to help us (and at the same time go fishing on Nara, near the intersection of Kaluga and Moscow regions):
Central entrance of the plant:
Lobby, there’s something like a showroom with new products :
And here is the novelty itself:
In the photo, of course, the picture is doubled, but you can at least see the image quality. As you can see in the picture to the right of the TV, this is LED.
After we were all gathered and handed out by special radios, allowing us to hear the guided tour at a distance of 20-30 meters, we went back to the factory and went to the plastic workshop:
These blue pieces are molds, all plastic parts are made with their help - from buttons to the case:
Some kind of warehouse. Of those photographers who were with us, very little was photographed around the environment, apparently everyone expected something unusual in the final stages of the excursion. But in vain, all the beauty can just be appreciated precisely in the workshops and other workrooms:
The robot is a “sniff” :) It is engaged in transporting all kinds of cargo along those lines on the floor, the control is semi-automatic: he doesn’t choose a route, he is set by a person:
TV assembly line. Below is a video from there, so you can watch the process “live”:
And here is the hero of the occasion:
Of course, this is not the first 3D LED TV in physical terms, but that is not the point. Judging by their press release, the company plans to start producing up to 10 models of 3D LED TVs in 2010, so far there are only 2 models, 7000 series, with a screen size of 40 (84,990 rubles) and 46 inches (99,990) rubles). The cost of TVs, according to representatives of the company, does not include all sorts of state. duties on the import of products from abroad (except for LCD panels, of course, since they are produced by only a few factories in the world and in Russia such production simply does not exist yet).
The 7000 Series monitors are equipped with an integrated 3D “3D HyperReal Engine” processor, which in combination with technologies such as “200Hz Motion Plus” and “Samsung Motion Judder Cancelling” will provide comfortable viewing of 3D content at home and can achieve high definition three-dimensional images in the most dynamic scenes. Moreover, the built-in 3D processor is capable of converting a standard 2D image into 3D in real time, so ordinary programs and films gain volume. The proprietary Samsung Ultra Clear Panel effectively absorbs external light and avoids glare on the LED TV screen, providing deep detail with natural, natural colors.
Also, 7000 series televisions provide the ability to record and play videos directly from a USB drive, support Skype, as well as the updated Internet @ TV content service with a platform for Samsung Apps applications that allows you to work with web services such as YouTube, Twitter, AccuWearher, FaceBook, History, Picasa, Getty Images, RBC, GisMeteo, Sport Express, Russia.ru and others. In addition, the new LED TVs feature enhanced connectivity thanks to DLNA support and four HDMI ports. Well, that seems to be all that I heard there and read in a press release.
Just a few more photos from the trip:
