Late Tuesday, Samsung said it has begun production on panels for 3D TVs, becoming what it claims to be the first manufacturer to do so.

The company began producing LED and LCD compatible panels for 40-inch, 46-inch and 55-inch full-HD 3D TVs using Samsung’s “3D Active Glasses” this month, the company said. The TVs will use 240-Hz refresh rates.

At this year’s Consumer Electronics Show, the 3D TV market shot into prominence, with the launch of several models, especially from Sony, and even the announcement of a pair of 3D TV networks.

Some analysts have expressed doubt that 3D TVs can succeed, however, while others, like Display Search, estimate that the 3D display market is expected to grow from $902 million in 2008 to $22 billion in 2018.

According to Wonkie Chang, president of the LCD Business at Samsung Electronics, the 3D displays, recently, have captured the industry spotlight. “Samsung Electronics aims to lead the global 3D TV panel market in pioneering panel mass production for 3D LED and LCD TVs.”

Samsung uses 3D active glasses technology, which turns on and off the left and right lenses of the glasses, creating the 3D image through a combination of the two. Samsung’s 240-Hz technology allows each eye to see a discrete 120 Hz image, providing a 3D effect while preserving the smooth motion that 120-Hz technology provides. Samsung also said that it has cut the response time on its LCDs to less than 4 milliseconds to help eliminate interference between left and right lenses.
