How Netflix Works In Virtual Reality, And Why It’s Not HD

When watching a 3D video on YouTube, the settings icon (the ‘gear’ icon in the bottom right corner) presents a 3D On/Off Switch. Be sure it is in the On” position, then select your preferred options. Without special hardware, you may select Full Color” and Red/Cyan” to display the video in anaglyph. 3D will only need a inexpensive pair of red/blue glasses.samsung gear vr promotionsamsung gear vr promo

No matter where you turned, there was VR gear and software to be found. Gatorade had a VR experience, and McDonalds had a VR playground. There was an entire suite of VR software and hardware run by the folks at Upload VR. The conversations about VR ranged from storytelling questions about how to create immersive narrative structures to brand marketers exciting to bring their customers closer to their products with VR applications.

The spec sheet also lists that it uses an IPS panel. Seemingly enough, the display appears to use an IPS panel to those with an untrained eye. The viewing angles are good at any angle and the wide color gamut is evident. You’d be forgiven to think it’s an IPS because it’s uncannily similar. However, I noticed the superior contrast, very mute color grading, minor contrast shift midway when checking the viewing angles and slightly slower response times. I cross examined it with the displays on my various devices. A shot of the sub-pixel structure also shows that true enough, it’s one of the more advanced VA-type panels, not an IPS-type. Turns out, the Excite 470q actually uses an AHVA panel.

My experiences up until now with my Galaxy S, have not been the most positive and I am starting to doubt whether I had made the right decision in purchasing it over the iPhone4, I love my phone but such software issues(Android & Kies) really ruin the whole concept of integrated software system. Hopefully by the time Froyo (delayed again until November) gets released we might have a stable version of Kies that connects to the Galaxy S without issues.
