3D Glasses Related Questions

3D glasses allow their viewers to experience the illusion of three dimensions on a 3D video projector or a 3D television screen. These glasses create a perception of depth in an image. Passive polarized glasses and active shutter glasses are mainly the two types of 3D glasses and each type uses a different technology. They separate the images viewed by both eyes, which is then processed by the human brain and then converted into a 3D image. Below are frequent asked questions on issues relating to 3D Glasses that has been answered by the Experts.

I have a Panasonic TC-P55ST30 TV. What brands of 3D glasses would work with that TV?

To get the correct brand of 3D glasses for your Panasonic TV, you would want to visit http://shop.panasonic.com/shop/model/TC-P55ST30?t=accessories. This website would provide you with options on shutter 3D glasses that are compatible to work with Panasonic. However, it would always be a better idea if you could go through the various sizes of these glasses available on this website before purchasing one. For instance, if you could visit http://www.amazon.com/Panasonic-TY-EW3D3LU-Active-Shutter-Eyewear/dp/B0058SYDUW, you would be able to get the large size option of 3D glasses. You could take their model or the part numbers and check their prices on the website.

I own a Westinghouse TV with model number TX47F430S. The Direct TV is 3D. I can see

two pictures that are placed side by side on my TV screen. What 3D glasses would I

need to view the TV in 3D?


To begin with, your TV does not seem to be 3D capable. Moreover, the model number that you have provided is not going to work with the DirecTV 3D. Usually, when you purchase a new 3D TV, you receive a pair of 3D glasses along with the new set. Therefore, you would find that in many cases these glasses may not work best with brands other than their own. For example, if you have a Samsung 3D TV, you would see that it works best only with your Samsung 3D glasses. However, in this situation, the reason you thought your TV was 3D compatible is because your TV has a 3D comb filter. This filter is mainly used to control the picture noise on your TV and therefore has nothing to do with 3D viewing effect. Moreover, in this particular case, since a 3D image is being played over a non 3D screen, you kept viewing the two pictures side by side. Usually a 3D TV works by combining two separate images on the TV screen. These images take up the entire screen and become blurred. Now the 3D glasses merge these blurred images into a single 3D image.

Can I plug the 3D glasses directly into a TV port on my HD DLP TV to have them work

effectively or do I need a ‘Starter Package’ for this?

Normally, the 3D glasses consist of an emitter, which can be plugged into the four pin ‘Emitter’ port. You can locate that port on your TV’s back. However, if you purchase the 3D glasses kits from Mitsubishi, you would get the emitter and a control cable along with the kit that you can use to connect to your TV. You must also know that the 3D glasses that you receive in the kit are wireless.

I want battery operated 3D glasses for my Hitachi 1080p TV. Where can I buy that?


Hitachi does not provide battery operated 3D glasses to begin with. Therefore, you would need to buy a different TV in order to gain a 3D experience in this particular case. Some companies like Samsung, however, does manufacture these battery operated 3D glasses that are meant for the purpose of experimentation. They are manufactured only for some Samsung televisions that are sold with a particular type of Blu-Ray player. Therefore, if you want to experience a 3D viewing effect on your television set, what you would need to have is a new TV set that is 3D enabled. For that it is not at all necessary for the glasses to have power or batteries of any kind.

The concept of 3D is gaining popularity and is being used in movies, video games and televisions. However, it is important to ensure that the 3D glasses are positioned properly and all other equipments are working correctly, if you want to experience a good quality of 3D viewing. Or else, you may have problems like motion blur, brightness reduction, ghosting and so on while viewing the 3D images through these glasses. If you need clarification about your specific situation with respect to issues related to 3D Glasses, you may ask a TV Technician expert to evaluate your case details and provide a technical insight.
