Irvine, Calif. -
(MDEA) began offering Tuesday a free 3D TV software update for select 2010 Mitsubishi 3D-ready TVs.
The software updates were developed for MDEA's 738- and 838-series 3D-ready TVs, to directly support all mandatory 3D signal formats encompassed by the HDMI 1.4a specifications.
Upgraded Mitsubishi 738 and 838 3D TVs will directly connect to 3D sources, such as Blu-ray players and satellite and cable set-top boxes, without the need for a 3D adapter, MDEA said.
"Size and speed are crucial to enjoying the most realistic, immersive 3D TV viewing experience, and Mitsubishi leads the market on both fronts," stated Frank DeMartin, MDEA marketing VP. "With this new 3D TV software update, we keep our customers on the leading edge of 3D home entertainment, and they can now experience a full range of 3D TV content on our cinema-like large screen 3D TVs."
The new 3D TV software upgrade will be downloaded automatically to 738- and 838-series Mitsubishi 3D DLP Home Cinema TVs that are connected to the Internet. Applicable sets without an Internet connection have two additional upgrade options: the software can be downloaded via a PC to a USB stick, which can then be input to the TV to run the update, or Mitsubishi will provide a USB stick with the software upgrade preloaded via mail for a nominal fee.
