October 1, 2008 While watching high quality video on phones and personal media players is an attractive prospect to consumers, doing so on a tiny screen is not. While micro-projectors are developing into a viable alternative, video glasses remain an attractive option for bringing cinema quality viewing to your own personal space, and the cinemizer from Carl Zeiss even manage to inject a little style and comfort into the equation.
The 115-gram glasses simulate a one-meter wide movie screen at two meters distance and when connected to the new Nokia N96 mobile phone there's an added bonus - the TV signal from the integrated DVB-H receiver is displayed on the video eyewear without loss of quality.
“Anyone that has experienced their favorite show, a TV movie, a music clip, a YouTube video or a soccer game on the cinemizer screen, will no longer be satisfied with a standard screen, not to mention a small phone display,” says Andreas Klavehn, Marketing Multimedia Devices Manager at cinemizer developer Carl Zeiss.
