Toshiba Corporation today unveiled dynabook Qosmio T851/D8CR, the first glasses-free 3D notebook able to display 3D and 2D content at the same time on one screen.
dynabook Qosmio T851/D8CR employs Toshiba's 3D Window technology. 3D images are created using parallax, by delivering separate images to the left and right eyes. User can enjoy high-quality 3D images without dedicated glasses if the separate images are properly delivered to each eye. Toshiba has adopted a distinctive face-tracking function and Active Lens to fulfill this requirement.
Face-tracking allows the web camera integrated into the dynabook Qosmio T851/D8CR to track the user's face and recognize the position of the eyes. Active Lens, integrated into the LED panel, controls polarization of light delivered from the panel. These functions secure precise delivery of separate images to each eye, even when the user moves.
With SpursEngine, a dedicated image processor with advanced performance derived from the multi-core technology of the Cell Broadband Engine, dynabook Qosmio T851/D8CR boasts 2D to 3D real-time conversion technology that allows users to enjoy high-quality 3D images generated from 2D terrestrial, BS and 110 CS digital broadcasts.
These 3D images are made all the more natural and eye-friendly by Toshiba's newly introduced Face3D and Caption stabilizer. Face3D uses Toshiba's high-speed, high-accuracy face detection technology to locate faces in 2D images and then applies a human depth template to the image, giving the features more depth and assuring a 3D appearance with graded shading. Caption stabilizer detects any captions in the image and keeps it constantly at the front of the image. The depth of the captions stays fixed and easy to read.
3D Window is realized by the Active Lens, which controls polarization of the light delivered from the LED panel. With Active Lens turned off, the panel delivers normal 2D image; with it turned on, the panel delivers 3D images, separating the images sent to each eye. Active Lens can be turned off and on quickly and locally, which means individual parts of the LED panel can deliver 3D images. Thus the user can enjoy 3D Window and 2D images shown simultaneously on one display.
The new notebook will be available in the Japanese market from late July, the price is still to be announced.

Kingston Digital announced the DataTraveler 4000-M USB Flash drive, a fully managed version of the company's DataTraveler 4000 product. Developed for enterprise deployments, the FIPS-certified DT4000-M leverages SafeConsole for Kingston server software from BlockMaster.
The Ponemon Institute released data last month highlighting that data breach costs are skyrocketing. Specifically, monetary loss related to mobile devices for US-based organizations surveyed rose 15 percent year-over-year to $258 per record. Data from other industry sources show a 400-percent year-over-year increase in lost USBs during 2010, with 1 in 10 employees losing a USB drive containing corporate info. Additionally, a recent survey from BlockMaster found that 76 percent of workers plug unknown USB drives into their company laptops, exponentially increasing the risk of passing on viruses and malware to their corporate networks.
Encryption can protect data from unauthorized access, but in some cases adds complications that prompt employees to circumvent company-approved drives in favor of consumer drives for ease of use. This scenario unfolded in the case of Cambridgeshire County Council in February 2011.
