How the new 3D TV technology works

Indeed in recent times the new 3D TV technology has become very popular among a lot of people around the world. This is mainly due to the increase in the production of films that possess the 3D features. The most common include films like James Cameron’s Avatar and Pixar’s Up. It is purely because of these films that a number of the television producers are manufacturing the new 3D TV technology range of televisions.

Since there are several methods that are used in the production of these televisions and they therefore come in different prices. Also some are more feasible and flexible than others. It is therefore important that we take a look at the different methods that are used in the production process.

One of the methods is the active glass system. This system works in such a way that instead of the TV doing all the work it is rather the glasses that do the work. In this kind of technology, one could be watching a movie in 2D and then all of a sudden just switch to the 3D system at will. What the glasses will do is that they will alternate the polarization of the lens thereby making the wearers of the glasses to see the 3D images. This is after the glasses have synchronized the refresh rate of the TV. However, the glasses may be quite expensive and could go for about $100.

There is another one of the new 3D TV technology which is the passive glass system. With this system which is quite similar to the active glass system, but here it is the TV rather that does all the work. This LCD monitor will offer viewers the opportunity to watch both 2D and 3D images on the television. Also it has two overlapping images and the glasses possess lenses that are polarized. This system is very practicable and is produced with the 40 to 50 inch LCD TVs.

One another method is the lenticular viewing. With this method, there is no need to be putting on the funny glasses that are associated with the other methods. The TVs use a lens that can send varying images to the eye. The left eye will have an image which is very different from the right eye. It however has a small viewing angle meaning that one must sit at a particular spot to see clearly.
