Berlin, Germany - Among the highlights of the new product
offerings from Sony at this week's IFA electronics fair, here, is the company's
"Personal 3D Viewer" -- a head-mounted HD/3D TV personal display, which was
given a sneak preview at International CES last January.

Personal 3D ViewerThe HMZ-T1 Personal HD/3D TV viewer is said to have a unique
form-factor that presents a virtual theater experience allowing users to be
fully immersed in the action.

To the wearer, the image appears to be displayed on a 150-inch
screen, Sony said. It uses miniature 720p OLED screens developed by Sony, that
are said to support a high contrast ratio and fast refresh rates, and is
"capable of enhanced 3D" presentations.

Sony said the viewer produces "a more natural 3D video experience
that is completely free of crosstalk since each eye has its own display."

The viewer is equally capable with 2D and 3D material and is said
to be ideal for video game play as well as movie watching.

The HMZ-T1 head mount display delivers a virtual surround sound
experience, using Sony's proprietary signal processing technology to power the
integrated headphones with a simulated 5.1-channel experience.

The Personal 3D Viewer is scheduled to ship to retail in October
at a price to be announced.
