CES 2012: Watching two shows at the same time full-screen

LAS VEGAS — Amid the sea of endless television screens being shown here at CES, the Samsung Dual View TV stands out.

The Dual View TV allows for two shows/movies/whatever to be shown at the same time, full screen.

Say you want to watch a movie, and your spouse wants to watch a concert. With the Dual View TV, the two events are overlaid on the screen. Without the special glasses accompanying the TV, you’ll see both images. With the glasses on, each viewer taps on a clicker on the right side of the glasses to choose whether to see the movie or the concert. Whichever you choose, you’ll see full-screen.

The 55-inch OLED high-def TV will be available sometime in the latter half of 2012 — probably in the third quarter. Samsung did not specify a price.

Here’s a video demo of what it looks like without the glasses on:
