Samsung vs. LG spark at World IT Show 2010 with 3D

3D technology is one of the hottest products at 'World IT Show 2010

3D technology is one of the hottest products at 'World IT Show 2010,' the greatest IT exhibition event in Korea. The competition between Samsung and LG around 3D display will be the main highlight of the event.

In COEX, Seoul, where World IT Show 2010 is held, many people drop by to see 3D displays created by Samsung Electronics and LG Electronics.

Samsung's display, named '3D Cube,' is a kind of tower that consists of 36 televisions. These are 55-inch full 3D LED TVs from Samsung, and visitors can experience full 3D images. In addition, Samsung demonstrates other 3D products, such as a 3D Blu-ray player and 3D home theater.

While Samsung catches visitors' attention with 3D Cube, LG has the largest 3D TV. The size of this full LED 3D TV measures 72 inches, and many people form a line to watch it with glasses. Also, LG offers the opportunity to take 3D pictures with the popular LG Twins baseball player mannequins.

It is not only Samsung and LG that are a part of the exhibition but many others vendors are also excited to display their new products incorporating 3D technology.

3DIS is one such vendor that exhibited a 3D LCD monitor that doesn't require users to wear special glasses. The 3DIS monitor uses high-precision optical 3D LCD technology to mimic the effect of 3D without requiring users to wear any kind of special glasses.

The popular Korean simulation company GolfZon also demonstrated "Seoul-Tokyo Virtual City Golf Course." Like the title suggests, the game lets players experience a game of golf in virtual courses located around Seoul and Tokyo's most recognizable buildings, roads, and landmarks.

Another technology that is catching the visitors' attention is the smartphone. Since Apple's iPhone launch in Korea last year, many manufacturers have invested more of their resources into the smartphone market. Two leaders and competitors in this market are LG and Samsung.

At this year's World IT Show, LG publicly debuted two smartphones; the Optimus Q (LG-LU2300) and the Optimus Z (LG-SU950/KU9500). Both run Google's Android operating system.

Samsung also displayed the 'Wave,' the first phone to feature 'Bada OS.' Samsung has dubbed Wave an easy smartphone, as it gives users the simplest experience downloading new applications.

There are many other key exhibitors including SK Telecom, HP, KT, Google, Kodak and Panasonic. There are also meetings arranged for foreigners and domestic companies so that they can launch joint ventures. Contracts will be made among them as export consultation meetings are to be held during the show.

At World IT Show 2010, under the slogan of 'Feel IT, See the Next,' the trend of future IT industry can be experienced through new technologies displayed in 1,500 booths from 550 international technology businesses.

This event is hosted by the Ministry of Knowledge Economy (MKE), Korea Communications Commission (KCC) and Ministry of Culture, Sports and Tourism (MCST), and is held on May 25-28 in COEX, Seoul.

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
