Eindhoven, Netherlands-based Dimenco has launched a Kickstarter campaign for their glasses-free 3D TV, selling for under $1,250 via a Kickstarter campaign. The company has a manufacturing site in The Netherlands, but is ramping up manufacturing at new facilities in the Far East, targeted for this month. After test runs of their new production facility, they are to start manufacturing in August to deliver their first products in September, and the bulk in November. "Having to use 3D glasses hampers social interaction and is simply uncomfortable," they said, and they have worked to develop a TV that can improve on the viewing experience. They are a small team, with years of experience in 3D technology. Maarten Tobias, Jan van der Horst, Pieter de Jong and Bas Böggemann are the four founders of Dimenco. They worked together at a former venture of Philips that focused on 3D technology. Dimenco was founded in 2010. The Kickstarter campaign offer is a 39" glasses-free 3D TV with Full HD quality in 3D and 2D.
They said that "we can offer you a fantastic 3D experience for e.g. 3D Blu-ray, YouTube 3D and 3D games on PC or consoles. In other words, we add a new dimension to watching TV, movies and playing games." They added that "if you would still want to watch normal television, that is possible in Full HD quality."
