Panasonic has announced that its 3D labs at the Panasonic Hollywood Laboratory in California has opened for business. Announced in January at this year's CES, the laboratory has been created so that Panasonic can push research and development of its 3D Full HD (snappily shrunk to 3D FHD) format. To prove that it is serious about the format, Panasonic has installed some pretty impressive bits of kit into its lab – TV-wise, there's a 380-inch screen going up. As for the 3D FHD products that Panasonic are creating, they include a 3D plasma display (a 103-inch one was shown off at CES), a 3D-ready digital projector and a 3D-ready MPEG4 decoder.
