Double Full HD 3D Consumer camcorder
The Sony Handycam HDR-TD20V utilizes two Full HD sensors to capture true 1920x1080 3D video for a more immersive 3D experience. Most 3D cameras achieve the 3D affect by splitting a 1920x1080 signal into two 960x540 channels in order to squeeze them onto one sensor, thereby limiting resolution on the final output.
3D Ready 3.5-inch Xtra Fine LCD display (1229K) w/TruBlack technology The LCD is also 3D ready, enabling you to view your 3D content directly on the camera’s LCD without the need for 3D glasses. TruBlack technology brings remarkably higher contrast and brightness to the camcorder’s 3.5-inch Xtra Fine LCD display, delivering more natural, realistic colors and easier viewing in bright conditions by reducing glare.
