What is 3D Technology?
You will experience a sense of depth and smooth motion with no loss of detail that standard 2D can’t match. The 3D image without the specs is just a blur but once the glasses are on the magic starts to work. For the tech-minded 3D TVs create the impression of depth by polarising the original 3D pictures in separate images these are then directed to either your right or left eye.
Buying a 3D TV
Buying a 3D TV is not exclusively for watching 3D it also plays your usual 2D content. So this is more a case of investing in a good quality 3D model that performs well in all areas. 3D is a great feature for enjoying with the family and friends and is fast becoming standard in most smart TVs. To watch 3D at home you will need to connect to a 3D Blu-ray player, 3D Blu-ray disc or have access to 3D programs through Sky subscriptions.
What is the Best Size TV for Watching 3D TV?
To fully appreciate the 3D experience buying a big screen is the answer. Invest in the biggest size your room can take as 3D doesn’t work as well on a small screen. Get the distance right too for optimal viewing. Recommendations say a minimum of 32 inches placed at a distance of four times the height of your TV’s screen.
What is the difference between Passive and Active 3D Glasses?
There are two types of glasses – passive 3D which LG has mostly focussed on and active. Although both technologies have been adopted by manufacturers. Passive 3D glasses are cheap and usually plenty of pairs are included with the TV, this is also is used at the cinema. Active 3D glasses on the other hand offer a higher resolution but can be heavier and bulky. They are also more expensive.
