2D to 3D Conversion

Whilst technology catches up with 3D, you can take advantage of the 2D to 3D conversion function to watch TV, DVD or Blu-ray standard in 3D. Due to the limited availability of 3D content in the near future, it is very likely that the viewer is likely to be using the 2D to 3D function quite regularly. This feature is not included by every manufacturer and certainly useful until 3D content is widely available.

So how well does this feature work? Well it actually works very well and displays the converted images in very good quality. Although it is obviously not perfect without the 3D content, it is however, impressive. If you were to compare the 2D version against the converted 3D, you would definitely be inclined to vote for the 3D version. For instance, watching the film Casino Royale, you can see the crane “pull away” from the sky. The 2D to 3D conversion is fairly effective most of the time ... but there are some exceptions! 

There is still room for improvement and the 2D to 3D conversion features is probably one Samsung UE46C7700 will probably look to make perfect. For instance, the conversions in some parts can be a bit too exaggerated and may sometimes get noticed by the viewer. But the overall result of the conversion is still very good.

The Samsung UE46C7700 also works beautifully when video games are tried. Try plugging in the PS3 and you wont be disappointed with the overall experience.

Some potential problems to consider
