Default Panasonic Unveils 2011 Blu-ray Player Lineup

The company introduced three new 3D players and one 2D player for those that want to stick with two dimensions

when they talk about how these players have a mode that can "add 3D" to 2D content is this an effect that can only be viewed on 3D sets with the shutter technology or is this something for "regular" displays also?
they really don't go into any sort of detail whatsoever.

It'll be real time 3D conversion that works under the current 3D standards. Panasonic was smart to add this feature, its another reason for people with checkerboard DLP sets to buy a Panasonic player, since no DLPs feature native 2D->3D capabilities.

Honestly if the reviews of the 2D conversion are positive, I might consider updating my BDT300.

I picked up the panasonic 210 model. I must say that I was very impressed with it. the big news is that the netflix is 3.0 which is the same as the ps3. it will also play DD+ on certain titles. my onkyo 270 receiver read the DD+ on it. the same can be said about vudu. I can also get DD+.
I thought some would be interested in this news.

thanks for the info.
I don't know anything about "checkerboard" dlp so I don't know what all that means as regards this player, but are you saying that anyone with a 3D display can have any 2D content converted into 3D that they then view though the shutter glasses?
does it work on both dvds and bds?

No prob!

This is silly, I know, but the most exciting part of these players is the ability to use your own picture/graphics as the wallpaper. It's great for custom home theatre so one can create (say) "The Smith's Home Theatre" logo and load it to the player so before the movie is inserted that custom logo will be shown as opposed to the usual "Panasonic" logo.

According to this poster, 2D-3D conversion doesn't work with checkerboard.

Although it might work on the new mits that accept full 3D. Elwaylite says he has used it on his 738.

YEA--I have finally upgraded from my bd-30!
can't wait to see how much faster the load times are compared to the snail pace of the bd-30.
